What Goes in Chicken Noodle Soup?

  • Chicken – I use shredded white meat chicken from a rotisserie. You can add or substitute chicken thighs, too.
  • Vegetables & Herbs – onions, celery, carrots and parsley bring so much fresh flavor and texture to this soup!
  • Frozen Peas – If you use canned peas, drain and rinse before adding to the broth. Be careful not to overcook, though, as canned peas will get mushy.
  • Egg Noodles – Feel free to use your favorite pasta (fusilli or rotini work great).
  • Chicken Broth – Chicken stock works, too. If you substitute bouillon for broth, dissolve 1 bouillon cube (or 1 teaspoon bouillon granules) into 1 cup of boiling water for every cup of broth. For example, this recipe would require 3 chicken bouillon cubes dissolved in three cups boiling water.
  • Seasonings – Black pepper and Italian seasoning and a hint of lemon! If you like to cook with bay leaves, you can add one to the broth while it’s cooking. Remember to remove before serving.

How to Make Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

  • First, melt the butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Then add onion, carrots and celery.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Next, add the flour and cook for another minute.
  • Then whisk in the chicken broth, salt and pepper.

How to Serve and Store Chicken Noodle Soup

Serve hot. To store leftover soup, allow it to cool fully. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.

To freeze, be sure let the soup cool completely before storing. Soups are best stored in plastic containers. This storage container set is my absolute favorite because it has various sizes for storing different amounts. 

To reheat, thaw in the fridge over night and then heat in a sauce pan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Or microwave on 50% power one minute at a time until desired hotness.

What Goes with Chicken Noodle Soup?

If you’re in search of comfort, classic chicken noodle soup goes great with your favorite carbs. Serve chicken noodle soup with sandwiches, biscuits, or homemade bread.

  • Grilled Cheese: Knowing how to make great grilled cheese can turn a gray day into a great day! A warm, melty grilled cheese with a crisp butter outside and a gooey melted center is the ultimate comfort food.
  • Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits: Flaky, buttery, comforting goodness made from simple ingredients. They’re wholesome, delicious and sure to be a crowd favorite!
  • Grilled Cheese Roll Ups: Everyone loves these Grilled Cheese Roll Ups! They’re quick to make, easy to eat, and fun to dip in sauce or soup.
  • 5-Ingredient Homemade French Bread: Perfectly crusty on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, this bread is just waiting for a smear of butter. And with only five ingredients, it’s surprisingly simple to make and so delicious to eat!
