EASY Chicken Noodle Soup

I feel so utterly domesticated (in a good way) when I make soup. I mean, there’s no need to ever buy a can again with recipes that are this easy.

This chicken noodle soup is a favorite of Brocks’, so I make it for him a lot. He loves me for it, and I love it because it only takes about 15 minutes…shhhh don’t tell!

You Will Need:

8 Cups of Chicken Broth

3-4 stalks of Celery, chopped

3-4 Carrots, chopped

2 1/2 cups of Egg Noodles

Salt, Pepper and Parsley (fresh or dried) to taste

2 Chicken Breasts, cooked and diced


How To:

Bring the chicken both to a boil

Add all other ingredients, cover pot and lower heat.

Cook for 10 mins, until veggies and noodles are cooked.

Taste, and add more seasonings if needed.

Add the chicken breasts.

As with all recipes you can play with this and customize to how you like your soup. I like mine to be heavy on noodles, veggies and chicken and lower on broth. If you like brothy soups, just add more. Serves about 4-5 bowls.

Don’t wait till you get a cold to enjoy this one, it’s SO good!

    I love homemade chicken noodle soup. Now that I’m on Paleo, I’d just substitute the egg noodles for zucchini and squash noodles. Either way, this sounds delicious!!

    I agree that this is an easy and delicious soup – however, I always find that the flavor is not as rich when you use only chicken breasts. Here is another suggestion-

    Buy a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store
    Remove the breast meat (approx 2 cups) which is perfect amount for ANOTHER meal
    Put it in a pot with 8 cups water, celery, carrots, onions and seasoning as stated above along with a cup of brown rice
    Bring to a boil then simmer for an hour
    Take whole chicken out – the meat will fall off the bone – separate skin and bones and put meat back in
    Optional: add a bag of spinach (whole leaves or torn) which wilts down and adds more veggies
    There you go – the cooking of whole chicken gives rich flavor to soup and is just as easy!

    Dawn, such a great suggestion. Although I have tried doing something similar before, but somehow the bones seem to gross me out too much…I’m such a weirdo!
