The Best Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe


With the freezing weather we are experiencing this winter, I find myself preparing soups on a daily basis.  One of my favorites is this chicken noodle soup recipe. It is very easy to prepare and filling. I usually make it the day following a chicken roast. I use the  rest of the roast as a base for my soup. It makes a perfect chicken stock and adds so much flavor to the soup.

This chicken noodle soup recipe is also my daughter’s favorite lunch. She enjoys this hot meal with crackers on the side. Who doesn’t on a freezing day? I cannot believe how harsh this winter is! My scarf literally freezes when I walk my daughter to school. Since we cannot change the temperature, let’s see how we can stay warm.

Best Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe


  • 1/4 cup of shredded chicken. I use the remaining of my chicken roast. If you don’t have, use chicken breasts.
  • 1/4 of your favorite noodles
  • 1/4 of frozen vegetables: I use the one that has peas, carrots.
  • 1 celery washed and sliced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 TBSP of olive oil
  • 4 cups of chicken stock. I use my chicken roast as a base for my chicken stock. But you can use any store-bought chicken stock.

Make it

  • In a large pot, heat oil, add onions and let it cook until onions are tender and soft
  • Add celery and stir
  • Add the chicken. If you are using the remaining chicken roast, let it cook for few minutes. If you are using raw chicken, make sure to cook it well until it is no longer pink
  • Add the stock
  • Bring it to boil
  • Once water boiled, add the frozen vegetables and the noodles.
  • Let it cook for few minutes.

That’s it. As easy as that. If you are a little more adventurous with taste, add some Curry paste to your chicken stock. I love to spice up my meals with curry paste. Sometimes, I add some Tabasco. I am fond of spicy food, like my curried sweet potato soup!


I love the way the curry helps warm me up! Both soups go great with some homemade garlic bread.

What do you think of this chicken noodle soup recipe? Are you eating a lot of soups during this frigid winter?

    this sounds delicious. I do love my soups, they’re comfort foods in winter and just because in summer :-)
    I won’t be adding any curry nor Tabasco though as I can’t eat spicy foods.

    I have not made soup in ages and this one sounds good. I will be saving it to make soon. thanks for sharing

  3. I use almost the same recipe with a little less broth and serve over mashed potatoes with some crusty bread. My family loves it!

  4. What a nice and simple recipe for chicken noodle soup. I love soup anytime of the year and this would be a great one to make.

  5. Chicken soup is so good for you if you use real chicken stock that’s homemade. I can’t even eat the canned stuff. It just tastes awful. I’m spoiled by homemade soup, I’ll hurl if someone gives me anything other than homemade.

  6. I am so going to try this recipe. I have been looking for a really good one for Chicken vegetable soup. It is so cold here in Pennsylvania that soup are tops on my list.
