Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

This creamy chicken noodle soup is quick and easy to prepare! It’s loaded with tender shredded chicken, plump noodles, and healthy vegetables. It’s hearty, delicious and loved by everyone who tries it! All this needs is thick slices of my Crusty French Bread. 

This is based on one of our most popular recipes: Easy Chicken Noodle Soup (a reader and family favorite!). The ingredients are simple, pantry staples that you probably already have on hand. With a few easy tweaks, you can make a classic chicken noodle soup into a comforting pot of creamy chicken noodle soup that tastes like a healthy version of chicken pot pie.

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.

    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). =) Reply

    Holy Chicken Noodle! This was delicious! I felt a cold coming on and this sounded perfect on a rainy November Saturday. I made it exactly as written and it was perfect. My husband said this was the best soup he’s ever had & my son had seconds which is amazing. Can’t wait for left overs tomorrow. I bet it gets better once it’s had time to sit. Thanks for sharing a awesome recipe. This will go into the fall/winter classics for us. Reply

    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. Reply

      Hi Emg! I haven’t tried it with Thyme but one of our readers has and here is what she said: ” I tweaked the recipe a little bit and I added 2 bay leaves and thyme. I forgot the corn 🙁 but it still turned out great. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐” . I hope this helps! Reply

      you can use chicken breast but chicken thighs are more forgiving and tender when they were boiled. Reply

    This is one of my favorite soups! I’ve made this recipe three times already, although every single time I have been unsuccessful when it came to Step 5. The butter and flour becomes very thick and I can’t get the right consistency. Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      June 20, 2018

      Hi Vivian, I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I’m wondering if you somehow ended up with more flour than the recipe calls for causing it to be thick? I recommend these measuring tips on how to properly measure dry ingredients. I hope this helps! Reply

      • Candra Lindstrom
        December 8, 2018

        The same thing happened to me. Adding the boiling hot broth made the butter and flour mixture turn into thick paste. I started that step over again and cooled some broth before adding it into the flour mixture and that was more successful. Reply

      I made tons of soups for when I had my son so I could have easy to grab meals. I made a batch and loved it so much I had to make more. The first batch never made it to the freezer. lol But I did make a whole batch and divided it among freezer bags once it was cooled and it was perfect. I grabbed a baggie out and plopped the frozen soup right in the pot and let it thaw on low and it tastes just as good as eating it the first time around. This is my go-to chicken soup now! Reply

    Fantastic recipe: well written with excellent illustrations! I made it outdoors in my Dutch oven on my gas stove, and it turned out perfectly. A little optional kick: smoke-cook the chicken thighs for about 20 minutes before you place them in the broth. The slightly smoky flavor hits the spot! Reply

    I could not get the cream step down for some reason! I followed the recipe exactly but every time I tried whisking in the broth of the soup, the flour/ butter mixture immediately got very clumpy. Any suggestions on what I did wrong? I tried it three separate times. It was still good without the cream, but just wondering for next time! Reply

      Hi Sam, it is normal for a little bit of clumping and it disolves once added to the soup, but try whisking while adding the broth and then the cream. I hope that helps! Reply

    Great day for soup here in cool Florida. Just made a pot following your recipe. My husband really likes the flavor, he’s a cream of chicken sort of guy. I did do a little tweaking, used two chicken breasts and four bone in legs. The breast is not as tender but good use of the cut. Also, my hubby is not a fan of dill so used about a tablespoon parsley, about an 1/8 teaspoon of Bell’s seasoning. Did not have heavy cream so used whole milk. Just to share with your followers to make the recipe even if you don’t have all the ingredients. Soup is delicious! Thank you. Linda Reply

    Amazing flavor! Easily one of the best soups. It was a little thicker than I prefer, so I think I’ll try to even it out with a bit more water and chicken broth next time. I also thought about using potatoes instead of noodles when I make it again. Suggestions? Reply

    I made this soup last night to have for dinner today because I knew I wouldn’t have the time to do it when I got home from work. I put it in the refrigerator last night and pulled it out to have for dinner and it was no longer soup. It was more like a casserole. Is it not a good leftover soup? Is it meant to eat right after cooking. It was still very tasty but wish it was soup. Reply

      Sandy, I would add a splash of water to thin it out, since it does thicken up slightly as it cools, but It tastes just as good reheated. 😀 Reply

        November 1, 2017

        I added about a cup of chicken broth but it wasn’t much help. I’m wondering if the pasta soaked up the liquid and thinking next time if I make it ahead I’ll cook the pasta separate and add it when I’m serving. Reply

    Weird question… Do you think this would still be good, if unsweetened almond or soy milk were used? Or maybe if just the heavy cream were omitted? It just sounds so delicious. We are non-dairy. I know… Weird question. I just have yet to find a suitable substitute for heavy cream, and usually just use milk (almond/soy), but some recipes really need the heavy cream, and are not good with the milk. Reply

    • Natasha

      September 18, 2017

      Hi Cindy, I think you could make that work but you wouldn’t need to boil the chicken at the beginning since it is already cooked chicken and boiling it for 20 minutes would make it very tough. Or did you mean putting the bones of the rotisserie in and making your own broth – that could work well instead of using chicken broth (you would essentially be making your own stock). I’m not sure if that is exactly what you were asking and hopefully that is helpful. I don’t think you would have to scale back on the liquid. Reply
