homemade chicken noodle soup recipe

Delicious and easy homemade chicken noodle soup recipe.


  • Olive Oil – about 2 Tbsp.
  • Celery – about 1 cup washed and cut
  • Onion – 1 medium sweet onion chopped
  • Carrots – about 1 cup washed and cut – or – my super fast time saver alternative – use baby carrots (whole)
  • Chicken – I pull the leftover white meat from the breasts in large chunks, but I’ve also used 2 chicken breasts, chopped
  • 12 cups of Chicken Broth – for me that was (3) 48 oz. containers of broth
  • Egg Noodles – I use about 8 oz.
  • Bay leaves 2-3
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. of ground pepper


  • In a large pot, heat olive oil
  • Add cut-up vegetables, and saute over low-medium heat for about 10 minutes or onions are translucent and vegetables are getting tender
  • Add cut-up chicken – continue to cook for a few more minutes – or until chicken is cooked through
  • Add broth, bay leaves, salt, and pepper, and noodles
  • Boil with lid on, until noodles are cooked – about 12- 15 min.
  • Lower to simmer, and continue to simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • Take the bay leaves out & Enjoy


  • This soup gets better with age. Leftovers are even better than the first time around.
  • If you don’t want the noodles to get really soft, like I do – you can skip simmering for 15 minutes. Just serve the soup as soon as the noodles are cooked through.


  • store soup in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
