The Best Pasta for Chicken Soup?

Our children love rotini noodles but you can use:

  • Traditional egg noodles
  • Broken spaghetti pieces
  • Or whatever you have on hand

Ingredients for creamy chicken noodle soup with chicken thighs and rotini noodles

How to Make Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

1. In a large soup pot or dutch oven, combine 6 cups chicken broth with 5 cups water and 1/2 Tbsp salt. Bring to a boil then add chicken thighs (no need to trim the fat), and boil uncovered 20 minutes. Skim off any impurities that rise to the top. While chicken is cooking, proceed with step 2.

2. Place a large pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp olive oil. Add chopped onion and sauté until softened (5 min), then increase heat to med/high and add grated carrots, chopped celery and sauté 5-7 minutes, stirring often until soft and golden then transfer to soup pot.

3. Remove chicken thighs from the pot and let sit until cool enough to handle then use forks or hands to shred chicken, discarding any bones and fat (which should come off easily). Return shredded chicken to the pot (by the time it’s cooled and shredded, this is usually after step 4).

4. Add 2 cups pasta, sliced carrots and corn to the soup pot and continue cooking 15 minutes at a low boil or until pasta is at desired softness. You can skim off any excess oil from the top at this point if you want the soup to be a little lighter.

5. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt 4 Tbsp butter then whisk in 1/3 cup flour and cook whisking constantly for 1 to 2 minutes or until just barely turning golden. Ladle 1 cup of hot broth from the soup pot into the flour mixture, whisking continually until well blended then whisk in 1/2 cup heavy cream and transfer mixture into the soup pot, stirring until well blended.

      I’m thinking of doing the same thing. Otherwise the pasta soaks up all of the liquid and gets soggy.

      Also thinking of freezing everything but the pasta, then thawing and proceeding when I’m ready to use it.

    This was spectacular! I tend to not like chicken soup bc its kind of bland, but this was anything but! The cream adds a richness that is normally lacking. I used 4 leftover drum sticks and probably doubled the pasta and cooked the pasta for 8 min after carrots started softening up. Also added a can of peas.

      It should freeze fine if you omit the noodles and add fresh ones when you reheat it. They will get mushy when frozen and then thawed.

    Made with leftover turkey. I always cook with wine and since the turkey was already cooked, I reduced the liquid to 9 cups total: 3 cans low sodium chicken broth (about 6 cups), 1 cup dry white wine, and 2 cups water. I wasn’t sure about the dill, but it was subtle once completed. I will definitely be making this again!
    Oh, and it’s even better the next day! Thank you Natasha.

    Greetings from Sweden! 🙂

    We love this soup! We made a huge batch in our slow cooker and shared with our elderly neighbors. We all loved it!

    Due to Mrs Neighbour’s dietary restrictions we omitted the corn from their part of the soup and used broccoli instead for a somewhat similar crunch. We also added a few diced potatoes since we love potatoes in soup.

    I wanted to tell you that we also had a lovely conversation about soup. Chicken noodle soup is not really a thing in Sweden and this was the first time or neighbours (85 y/o) ever tried a noodle soup. Overall, many elderly Swedes do not appreciate pasta in any form, as we didn’t have it here when they grew up. We talked about how every American family (I know about your European roots though!) seem to have their own recipe for chicken noodle soup, almost guaranteed to cure any cold. So this simple recipe sparked a great discussion about traditional soups in different times and places. And if course it is yummy. I’m making a huge batch tomorrow again for this week’s lunches at work.

    Thank you for your lovely recipes!!

    This soup is terrific! I’ve made it a couple of times and I honestly can’t stop eating it! I haven’t had time to shred some of the carrots, so I’ve just chopped them all into small pieces. This time I was really in a hurry, so I bought some chicken breast meat that was chopped for tacos (not marinated). It really made the process much easier and quicker as I didn’t have to spend time to take the chicken off the bone and chop or shred it. The little chunks of chicken were just perfect in the soup. I sauteed the chicken pieces, took them out of the pan, and added and sauteed the veggies. I used little star noodles this time. At the last minute, I added some frozen peas, and I think that other veggies would work well too. This soup is SO good! Thanks for posting such a great recipe! Can’t wait to try some of your other recipes! Happy New Year!

    I just got your email with the recipe for Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup. I have everything I need on hand to I’m going to try it tomorrow. I always cook my pasta for soup seperately and put it in a large canning jar with water or broth and warm it up when I serve it with the soup, or if I’m out of fideo I’ll cook up a different pasta as needed. I try not to cook up too much pasta as I’m only cooking for two. I was wondering, will you ever publish you own cookbook???? I’ve been printing your recipes and puting them in a binder.

      Hi Jill, did you possibly use dried dill? If so, you probably want to use 1 Tbsp or less of dried dill to substitute. To make it even thicker, you can add a little more flour and cream mixture then bring it to a boil to thicken up some more.

    I want to find out whether the pasta should be pre-cooked before adding to the broth.
    Thank you.

      Hi Jane, we did not precook it for this recipe. We place the noodles into the pot uncooked during step 4, where we then cook it for 15 minutes to make sure it’s cooked through.

    We love this recipe, but when I get to the step of melting butter, add flour and a ladle of broth and cream, the mixture turns to a blob. It is not liquidy like in your picture. What am I doing wrong?

      Hi Kristie, it sounds like the proportion of flour to butter is off. If you reduce the amount of butter, you would want to reduce the flour proportionally or it will be too thick. Also make sure your heat isn’t too high or it would burn and thicken too quickly.

    I followed the recipe exactly as written. It looks and smells delish. Can’t wait to feed the family. It is two days after Christmas, Covid 2020 year. I just needed comfort food. This looks and tastes like Chicken Pot Pie! I am happy, because, who needs the extra carbs after Christmas? THis is just what I needed. I used broad egg noodlesm (what I had on hand) and it makes it so authentic. That’s the only change I made.

    This turned out to be the best chicken noodle soup I’ve made yet and I make it fairly often. I used a whole rotisserie chicken and removed the meat and boiled the bones for the stock, plus added 6 cups of chicken bone broth and spring water to almost fill the large pot. I also added organic jellied chicken boullion paste. When I made the thickening paste I used half n half instead of cream… and at the end I used fresh parsley and fresh dill. I also used egg noodles in that huge bag from Costco and frozen organic corn. This turned out amazing and it made so much I was able to share with friends. Thanks Natasha for all the great recipes! 😊

    This soup turned out pretty good. Just tweaked it a bit. I’m saving this recipe for the future.
    Made it with wide egg noodles, knorr chicken bouillon and used chicken breast.
    Cooked chicken breast with onion, garlic and some knorr chicken bouillon. Used the liquid from that and added more water to it. Turned out great.

    So this recipe rocks! I did change it up using 1 1/2lbs of white and dark leftover turkey meat From thanksgiving and 12oz of left over gravy. I cooked the noodles separately and didn’t add so they wouldn’t absorb all the juice and get mushy. Add when reheat and awesome. Sorry if I changed this up and then said awesome, but it’s actually the key ingredients you use that makes it taste so good regardless of how people change up. Keep up the great work!

    I love this recipe, I have made this version and a variation of this recipe dozens of times. It’s soo easy and delicious.
    I have made the original recipe and it’s fantastic. But for a lighter version, I simply omit the roux and noodles. I use only bone in chicken meats (I’ve used thigh, breast & leg – generally whatever is on sale at my local grocer) and fresh veg. So it just becomes a flavourful chicken veggie soup. I add other veggies such as Kale, Brussel sprouts, broccoli stems, zucchini, potatoes..

      Hi Cindy, I haven’t had that experience. Did you possibly use more pasta than what is called for in the recipe? That could do it since Pasta will thicken a soup up.

    Thanks for the instructions on incorporating the butter/flour/stock. I added a little cream of tartar to the roux, since I had a double batch of leftover chicken stock already on the boil. I used a bag of frozen peas, and some leftover gluten-free pasta with spinach chopped up with kitchen shears for smaller bites. This looks amazing; can’t wait to serve this evening.

    Whole milk in place of cream (it’s plenty rich this way!)

    Rotisserie chicken breast (2-2/12 cups or so)

    Dried dill works perfectly fine, to taste. Dill is such a nice added flavor to this soup: don’t skip it!

    Sub chicken broth for the water (I think the amount of liquid could be reduced by about two cups this way).

    Loved this recipe!! Easy to follow & great soup! I added more seasonings to mine & added them from the beginning to the stock & chicken before inserting into the stock. So delicious! I used McCormick poultry seasoning, crush red pepper, paprika, rosemary, bay leaves, and a little old bay. Omitted the corn as I’m not a fan of corn in soups and used a celery stalk to stir the soup until it became to soft to use any more. Highly recommend this soup!! Thanks for posting!

      Third time making this soup. I’m so glad I found this recipe. I couldn’t think of anything else to add that would make it better……it’s perfection and so easy to make. My daughter, who is a very picky eater, loves the soup. Thanks so much for the recipe!

        I made this as I was looking for a creamy chicken noodle soup recipe. It did not disappoint! I doubled the chicken & halved the noodles, but otherwise made no changes & it was thick & delicious. There’s lots left for lunches this week. Great recipe!

    This looks delicious. What I would do differently, is cooking the broth myself. Using the chicken thighs and 2 carrots, 2 selery sticks, a leak or an onion and a parsley (root). We would have a whole pot of soup. In a pressure cooker it takes 15-20 minutes. This way one has got already cooked meat and homemade broth.

    I love, love, love this recipe!! I do a few modifications – namely I roast the carrots with some celery, caramelize some onions, mushrooms, and garlic and then put everything together with the chicken and my homemade chicken bone broth. I put everything in the crockpot and when the chicken is ready, take it out to cool while I remove 2 cups of the veggies and a cup of the broth and puree to make the soup creamy without the need for roux. Then I add either noodles or barley the last 30 minutes and serve. Delicious!!

    I made this for the family on 24 Sep 2019, and followed the recipe mostly, only items I changed were I used two large breasts in place of thighs and made the broth myself. I was testing out some gluten free egg noodles, and those just disintegrated into the soup, so I will not be using that brand again.

    Overall, as expected, the soup had excellent flavor and I will be making this again. The family liked this soup very much. Thank you, Natasha, for the great recipe.

    Absolutely loved how simple and yummy this recipe turned out. Since we are dairy free, I substituted cream with coconut cream ( canned); and Earth Balance butter. we are also GF, so i ended up using Pamela’s mix. I think it turned out good, I won’t know otherwise lol

    Ohhhh emmmm geeee….how delicious!! We came home from a family vacation and needed something lighter after pigging out all week, so I decided to make soup. I didn’t have chicken or noodles on hand, so I made everything the way you have it but with rice instead. My kids asked for seconds! What a miracle! haha Thank you so much for a delicious recipe!! Definitely will try next time with chicken and noodles!

      I absolutely LOVE this recipe! I’ve made it so many times I’ve lost count. However, whenever I get to the part where I melt the butter/add flour, then combine the broth ..along with the heavy cream.. my mixture always seems so thick that when I add it to the soup it doesn’t want to dissolve properly? I end up boiling the soup for awhile in order to get it to blend fully? It never truly ends up any “thicker” for me like I think it should? Just gives it a “creamy appearance? Please tell me what I am doing wrong! I follow this recipe to a T.

        Hi Terran, it sounds like maybe you are using too much flour. Make sure you spoon the flour into the measuring cup rather than plunging it into the flour bin so it doesn’t become compacted. You can also use 1/4 cup flour and see if that gives you the thinner liquid that you are looking for and that wills till work fine.

    How do you keep any type of noodle from becoming mushy, especially if you have leftovers?

      April 7, 2019

      Hi Trisha, the noodles won’t become mushy unless they were overcooked. If you plan to store this and enjoy throughout the week, cook until the noodles are soft but not mushy and it will keep well. Also, make sure not to add too many noodles which can absorb liquid and the soup will get thick.

        Hi Jamie, I haven’t tried making it in a crockpot so I can’t give you specific instructions but I think it could be modified to work. I would slow cook the soup and then still make the cream portion on the stovetop and add it to the slow cooker towards the end, allowing it to come to a simmer for a few minutes before serving.

        When I make a noodle soup, I precook my noodles to desired texture…add right before serving, heat through. They don’t get mushy.

    Hi! I have never left a comment on anything, ever but this soup is absolutely amazing!!! I made it a few weeks ago but didn’t make it creamy (and it was awesome!!) but this time I did. I literally can’t stop taking spoonfuls out of the pot! Also I actually cooked chicken breast in the pot with some oil, then added the onion and once that all cooked, I added everything else (peas too) and it came out perfectly! (I saw someone else’s comment about being pregnant & the chicken, I am with my 3rd & wouldn’t have thought of that so better safe than sorry). =)

    Made this today and it’s wonderful. I used egg noodles. Since there’s only 2 of us, many dishes result in leftovers, which is fine by us lol. But since it’s less dense than pasta, I’d probably cook the egg noodle separately, store separately, and add to soup bowls while reheating. That is really the only thing I’d do differently due to personal preference. I feel like egg noodles get mushy over time. Overall, this is my favorite chicken noodle soup recipe and my go-to.
