Dry Chicken Noodle Soup Mix {Meal in a Jar}

Meal in Jar recipes are the perfect solution for quick dinners with zero fuss.  They also make wonderful gifts (I like to give them to new moms, perfect for when they need something healthy and fast).

You can use any brand of freeze dried or dehydrated foods here, but I've included links to the products that I personally use.  If interested, you can click here to find out more about how you can earn these products for free or half off.  OR, take advantage of our 2016 discounted group food storage order by clicking here.
You can switch up the seasonings for whatever you like to add to your chicken soup, so this is completely customizable for your tastes.

This mix makes 2 large servings.  If you have a larger family, I would recommend doubling the ingredients and leaving the noodles out of the jar.  Those can always be included in the bag along side the jar, and added at the time of cooking.
Aside from the convenience of having ready made meals like this lining your shelves, these make excellent options for camping, hunting or 72 hour kits.  These can just as easily be put into mylar bags, or if you aren't worried about shelf life, a ziplock would work just fine.
The shelf life of this soup mix is 1 year.  If you have a food saver with the ability to seal a mason jar or vacuum seal a mylar bag, you can extend the shelf life up to 15 years if kept in a cool, dry place.
