Chicken Broth – Using 100% Fat-Free and low or no sodium keeps the broth from getting too “salty”. For an extra punch of flavor, add a tablespoon of “Better than Bouillon“
Herbs – Parsley, bay leaf, Garlic and pepper
Vegetables – Carrots, Celery, Onion
Noodles – Try my homemade egg noodle recipe, or your favorite store-bought noodles
Chicken – I like to have pre-cooked shredded chicken in the freezer for recipes like this one. However, you can add 2-3 chicken breasts to the broth and cook while the stock simmers.
How to Make Chicken Noodle Soup
Prepare the vegetables by chopping the carrots (you can buy these pre-cut), celery, and onion into bite-size pieces.
Fill a Dutch Oven with chicken broth, better than bouillon, garlic, parsley, bay leaf, carrots, onion, celery and pepper.
If you don’t have prepared chicken, add 2-3 chicken breasts to the stock, and simmer for 3-4 hours until the vegetables are soft and chicken breasts are cooked thoroughly.
Remove chicken from soup broth and cut using kitchen sheers.
Before serving, add noodles and cook according to instructions. Store-bought noodles will take longer to cook than my homemade egg noodles. I promise, my homemade egg noodle recipe is super simple and it will take this Chicken Noodle Soup recipe to the next level of deliciousness!
