    I always make a home-made chicken soup after roasting a chicken, and we usually have left-overs of the soup. I just checked my freezer and I have at least 1/2 a dozen family size containers of it. My family is tired of it! Everytime we have soup, they are all like, soup again? Any cool ideas on how to hide my left-over soup in other dishes so that I can clean out my freezer? It typically will have frozen mushy noodles in it or rice sometimes. .........sigh.

    Thicken it with cornstarch, add vegetables and make chicken pot pie.

    Oh, I hadn't thought of chili! That's a good one. Will have to look up a Chicken Tetrazinni recipe as I'm not familiar with that.. I do pot pies pretty often too. Trying to find new ideas. Thanks for those posted so far! Any other ideas?

    Just pour it over biscuits....add cream of chicken soup, cheese, corn...no liquid I do ad milk usually but you will have all the juice from the soup. If you want it creamier add a do-lop of sour cream....I use frozen biscuits. You can make them and freeze then use too. If using fresh biscuits I would cook them most of the way before pouring the liquid over. Never tried it with fresh not sure if it would make it all soggy.

    We have stuff like this often lots of ways to make this.....you can pour over frozen tator tots too.

    All the suggestions are terrific. But one blaring obvious entry is missing:

    Feed your chickens !! YES !!

    I make a LOT of soup these days - it's great cold weather Weight Watcher friendly food for my wife. Occasionally there are the not enough for another meal portions or THAT SOUP AGAIN comments from the wife.

    Cook off a package of Ramen Noodles, but don't add the flavor packet (save it). Once the noodles are done add the leftover soup to it and warm the soup. Let it cool some. Now pour that into a 13x9 baking pan and serve to your girls. Why not, our girls LOVE noodles and served in that tasty soup it will disappear in no time...

    chicken tetrazzni is just a noodle casserol.. I use cooked spaghetti noodles, toss with some garlic and onions... throw in enough soup to make it saucy, could even use the broth to make a cheese sauce and stir in some additional cheese and bake till gooey. Its probably not even a "proper recipe"...most casserols are "throw it together and make it work"
