I bought ingredients to make a quick chicken noodle soup because I thought I was getting sick, and of course it ended up being really hot outside when I went to make it. It was good, and definitely easy - but I don't usually have cooked chicken breast on hand, so I had to cook it first, then make the soup. It tasted good, but it's hard to get into soup on a hot day.
