The BEST Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

The other day my husband was feeling a little under the weather.  I wanted pamper him and decided to make some homemade chicken noodle soup.  Now one would think that The Best Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe would be one that was a long and arduous process, but would you believe me if I told you mine was ready in 30 MINUTES!  Yep, 30 minutes!  No crockpot, no Instant Pot,  no fancy gadgets.  I just made it the old fashioned way, on the stove top.  Best of all, I used a bunch of pantry staples that I already had on hand.

This simple chicken noodle soup recipe is full of rich flavor that just kept getting better and better. It's easily the best chicken noodle soup I've ever had, and I can't wait to share with you how I made it so let's get started.


Q: Do I have to use canned chicken?
A:  No.  If you don't want to use the canned chicken, just add your chicken thighs or breasts to the soup while it is simmering and let it cook until it will no longer kill anyone.  Remove it from the pot, shred it ir cut it up, and return it to the soup. 

Q:  Do I have to use the Knorr Chicken Bouillon Powder?
A:  No.  Obviously you can use any kind of chicken broth or bouillon you like, HOWEVER, the Knorr just brings A LOT of great flavor to the table.  If you aren't going to make your own chicken stock then I 100% recommend using the Knorr. 

Q:  I don't usually have any of those produce in my kitchen.  Is there anything else I can use?
A:  You can always use garlic powder and dried minced onion from your spice cabinet.  You can also use frozen mixed vegetables (or canned).

Q:  I don't have fresh parsley.  Can I use dry?
A:  100% yes!

  2. The chicken noodle soup recipe is a versatile and customizable option for those who may not have all the necessary ingredients. It can be made with different types of noodles, added with a splash of white wine or lemon juice for depth of flavor, or with your favorite herbs and spices. For a thicker soup, cornstarch can be added during the last few minutes of cooking. To make the soup heartier, add vegetables like peas, corn, or diced potatoes. For creaminess, stir in sour cream or heavy cream just before serving. Garnish each bowl with grated Parmesan cheese or extra virgin olive oil. The soup freezes well, making it perfect for easy grab-and-go meals. For a heartier meal, add cooked shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken or leftover roasted chicken. Add vegetables like broccoli, bell peppers, or spinach for nutritional variety. For a Mediterranean-inspired twist, add diced tomatoes, olives, and fresh basil. Make it a one-pot meal by adding cooked rice or quinoa to the soup. Lastly, remove excess fat or foam during cooking for a cleaner broth. divorce lawyers northern va
