Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Sunday, August 18, 2019

Feeling sick and under the weather? I got you covered. Below is the best Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe, just like grandma used to make. While cooking this soup, it gives off this fresh aroma in your home... it is some kind of amazing. 


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic or one teaspoon of minced garlic (I'm lazy)
  • 8oz of precut crinkle cut carrots (again, I am LAZY!)
  • 3-4 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 chicken breasts, bone-in 
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley 
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • bay leaves (about 3-4)
  • Freshly cracked pepper
  • 2-3 tsp salt 
  • 4 cups of chicken broth 
  • 4 cups of water
  • 6 oz. egg noodles

  • Dice the onion. Add the onion, minced garlic, and olive oil to a large pot and sauté over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft and transparent.
  • While the onion and garlic are sautéing, cut up your celery. Add the celery and about 8oz of your pre-cut carrots to the pot and continue to sauté for a few minutes more.
  • Pull the skin and any excess fat from the chicken breasts. I season the breasts with Salt and Pepper. Then Add the breasts to the pot along with the bay leaves, basil, parsley, thyme, more freshly cracked pepper, and 4 cups of chicken broth for more flavor and 4 cups of water. Cover the pot, bring it to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for one hour. Make sure the pot continues to simmer for the whole hour. If the heat is turned down too low and it is not bubbling away, the chicken will not shred easily.
  • After an hour of simmering, remove the chicken from the pot. Using two forks, pull the meat from the bone and shred it slightly. Season the broth with salt. Add as much to your liking. The flavor of the broth will really pop once the salt is added.
  • Add the noodles to the pot, turn the heat up to high, and boil the noodles until tender (about 7 minutes). Return the shredded chicken to the pot. Taste and season again with salt if needed. Serve hot!

Hope you all enjoy this as much as my family did and does. Also, hope you all start feeling better too!
