Dreaming of a White Christmas Soup - Gifts in a Jar

In the past we have asked our families to stop giving us gifts at Christmas due to the limited amount of space in the RV. We do no want to accumulate a lot of stuff making it cluttered and difficult to pack up and move when necessary. Well my family came up with a solution by giving us food gifts, items we will consume, therefore no clutter. I received this wonderful soup as a Christmas gift from my older sister. It was soooo yummy! Thankfully she included the complete recipe, not just what I needed to add to the jar. Now I can share this yummy soup with all of ya'll!!

For the jar (if giving as a gift, layer the items in jar, or other quart sized container, in the order listed for the best presentation):

1 pkg pioneer country gravy mix
2 Tbsp chicken bouillon granules
2 Tbsp dried minced onion
2 Tbsp celery flakes
2 tsp parsley flakes
3 cups wide egg noodles, uncooked (or pasta of your choice)

Add to this:

1 10 oz or 2 6 oz cans cooked chopped chicken
8 cups of water

Empty contents of jar into large saucepan or dutch oven.
Add water, stirring to mix. Heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat. Add the chicken. Cover and simmer for five to six minutes or until pasta is done, stirring occasionally.
Serve with bread, biscuits or crackers and enjoy!

  1. Never really thought about it, but I guess it is tough to find a place for odds and ends in an RV! I love jar gifts! Thanks for linking up, Terry.
