This comforting family favorite recipe for Easy Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup can be on the table in around 30 minutes...
Okay, you all. I am sharing a recipe with you guys today that will just crush that canned stuff you have been heating up over the years. It takes just a little more effort than cranking that can open and dumping the contents into a pan, but not so much more that you can't make this Easy Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup happen on a weekday evening. This delicious homemade soup can be on your dinner table in around 30 minutes, folks!
I have been making this recipe for my family for years now, and it is definitely a monthly meal plan favorite. In fact, it just may be my daughter's most favorite dinner at the moment. Not a week goes by that she doesn't ask me at least twice if we are having "Cock-a-doodle" soup for dinner. I had thought about actually titling my recipe by this adorable name my three year old has given it, but I didn't want to you all to think that any roosters had been harmed in the making of this soup. ;)
There is nothing fancy in this recipe- chicken broth, carrots, celery, chicken- but it is definitely the simplicity of it that just speaks of wholesomeness, comfort, and family dinners around the table...
Easy Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Ingredients (6 servings)
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 large carrots, chopped (or you can use a couple of handfuls of baby carrots & chop them)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- 4 cups of chicken broth (homemade, if you got it- here is a great recipe for Easy Homemade Chicken Broth)
- 3 cups of water
- 2 bay leaves
- about 5oz of extra wide noodles
- about 1 1/2 cups of chopped cooked chicken
- Salt & pepper, to taste
Heat a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Once heated add the olive oil and butter. Once the butter is melted, add the onion, celery, and carrots. Saute for 3-4 minutes.
Pour in the chicken broth and water. Drop in the bay leaves. Heat to boiling. Once it is brought to a boil, add your noodles. Boil for another 10 minutes until noodles are tender. Reduce the heat to a simmer.
Scoop out the two bay leaves. Then add in the chicken. Cook another 3-4 minutes until the chicken has been heated through. Taste your broth at this point and add salt and pepper to your taste.
Ladle into bowls and serve with a nice crusty bread or some saltines.
