Calories are approximate based upon serving size and ingredients added. My preference is to make the soup noodles separately and add them to the soup as it is being served. I do not add the noodles directly to the soup pot because they often soak up all the broth when stored in the refrigerator! Store the cooked noodles in a small bowl with some chicken broth.
