HOMEMADE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP

I am happy to say that we are finally past the cold that has been going around our family for almost three weeks. It made the round and it seems (fingers crossed, knock on wood!) that it is gone. But when it was here - it was ugly. It's so sad to see the kiddos without the energy and excitement, not even wanting to play with their favorite toys. They lack energy and appetite. The only thing that my family will eat while dealing with a cold/flu is a homemade chicken noodle soup. THIS chicken noodle soup. I crave it on cold, dreary days because it is the ultimate comfort food. It gives myInstant Pot Chicken and Rice soup a run for its money!

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP?

This recipe is so easy that you make it a couple of times and you will know it by heart.

  • It all starts with browning the chicken on both sides in just a little bit of olive oil. It helps to bring out the flavor of chicken in the soup.
  • Same with the veggies. Sauteing them just a little bit before the liquid is added creates the delicious flavor for this soup.

TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP:

Just a couple notes about the veggie mix I used in this recipe. I used baby carrots for two reasons: they are sweeter and you don't need to peel them. Just diced them up and throw into the stock pot. Also, my kiddos love baby carrots so I always have them on hand! I didn't use onion in this recipe because our kids don't like it and I don't feel the need for it but you can definitely add ½ of a cup of diced onion to the veggie mix. Like with almost every savory recipe on my site, I encourage you to adjust it to your likings.

    I strongly suggest you use a rosemary baked chicken from the grocery store /Costco's are good as well.
    I take all the chicken off the bones and toss the bones away. Put the skin in the pot and cook it and when you are ready to serve the soup take all the skin out and toss it away.
    I love this it is so tasty... yummy...

    Here are my tweaks:
    Used 8 cups of chicken broth
    Used 3 lbs chicken breast
    Added 1/2 a chopped onion
    Added 1 tsp. garlic ( from the jar)
    Added a packet of dried Italian dressing mix (great flavor booster)
    Before browning the chicken breast I salted, peppered, and garlic powdered the chicken breast.
    I cooked on the “soup” feature for 15 minutes then did a quick release.
    After cooking the soup, I tossed in 1 1/2 cups of tortellini and let them heat up for 5 minutes before serving. Delicious!

    This soup is good but there are WAY too many noodles for the amount of broth. I added FOUR more cups of chicken broth to make it more of a "soup" although there are still too many noodles. Next time I will only add about half a cup of dry noodles.

      I made this again today and this time, I used ground poultry seasoning instead of the oregano and Italian seasoning. I also added the onions and a bit of garlic, and again, 8 cups of chicken broth (I used better than bouillon) and about 3/4 cups of egg noodles. SO good!!!
