Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Cold and flu season is in full swing around here and it seems as though everyone I know has a runny nose and a cough. So before the plague hits our house I decided to make a batch of classic chicken noodle soup for dinner.

Not only can we enjoy the deliciousness of it now, but I’ve frozen half for later… just in case. And if we have any issues with congestion I’ll just add a pinch of red pepper flakes when I heat it back up on the stove. Problem solved!

This chicken noodle soup is not only delicious, but very easy to make. I didn’t even thaw the chicken tenders I used or chop them up. Nope. I just let the boiling soup do all the work.

If you’re looking for a comfort-filled meal that tastes great with a sandwich or a big green salad then this is the soup for you.

  2. This looks so yummy! I could use a good cup of soup right now!

  4. Sounds perfect for the chilly weather we have been having!

  5. That looks so good and it’s perfect for flu season!

  7. As my 2 yr old Ever would say : BELISH!!!

  8. Homemade is always best. Looks really good, Danielle! Thanks for sharing the recipe… going to have to try this!

  9. I made this today…sooo yummy! I added corn and diced potatoes and my kiddos loved it! Thanks for the recipe:)

  10. this sounds great, but i have a few questions:

    1. do you simmer covered or uncovered? if uncovered, did you have to add more liquid?
    2. could you provide me with the brand of the italian seasoning you used? i want to see if i have the individual ingredients laying around my pantry.
    3. i only use fresh chicken, do you think i should let the vegetables simmer a little longer on their own before adding the chicken, since the cook time will be greatly reduced?

    thanks, and i can not wait to try this recipe!

    • I’m sorry for not seeing this sooner! I simmer covered so I don’t lose the liquid but would replace with chicken stock if I lost any liquid. I use McCormick’s Italian seasoning. And I’d think the veggies would be fine since they’ve been softened by the sauteing.

    One word….. Delicious! This was my first time making homemade chicken noodle soup and now I’m hooked! Love love loved it. I made two small changes however…. I used a rotisserie chicken instead of frozen chicken and I also used chicken stock instead of chicken broth!
