Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

You will never eat chicken soup from a can ever again after you try this easy recipe. It is really so simple to make and tastes so much better than that stuff from Campbell’s. I love making chicken noodle soup from scratch because the chicken in the canned stuff is always kind of like mystery meat. This recipe has real cooked chicken (you could totally use meat from a rotisserie chicken to make it even easier) and the most delicious egg noodles. Plus I love adding in all of my favorite spices!

How to Make Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Making this dish is just five minutes of prep and half an hour of cook time. And to be honest, over half of it is hands-off!

First, you’ll chop your veggies and gather your spices. Heat your butter and oil in your pan (I absolutely love these Green Pan pots!) and cook your veggies, then add your seasonings.

Once that’s all nice and brown and toasty, add in your broth and bring it to a simmer. Then, you’ll add in your noodles, cook those until tender, and add in your chicken. Heat until the chicken is warmed through and you’re done.

What Kind of Noodles to Use

You can really use any kind of pasta that you have on hand, but I love Thick Old Fashioned Amish Noodles and Country Wide Egg Noodles. You can find them in big bags at your local grocery store. Something about the texture and the taste just feels nostalgic and cozy. If you haven’t tried these kind, give them a try.

What to Serve with Chicken Noodle Soup

A bowl of soup is wonderful on its own, but you could also serve it with a side salad or some bread. I love this Classic Side Salad. It has feta, green onion, and avocado!

There is absolutely nothing better in this world than homemade soup and homemade rolls. So if you’re feeling up to it, make these Easy One Hour Dinner Rolls. They only take one hour (instead of 3!) and have simple ingredients you probably already have in your fridge. I promise you can make these, even if you’re not a baker.
