Easy and Delicious Chicken Noodle Soup. The secret is in the chicken thighs! @natashaskitchen

Ingredients for Chicken Noodle Soup:

  • Use Chicken Thighs: The secret to super tender chicken without crazy long cooking times is in using chicken thighs! You can use boneless or bone-in chicken.
  • Use High Quality broth: Homemade Chicken broth will give you the richest flavor but you can use a store-bought low sodium chicken broth.
  • Use oilnot butter: Butter solidifies in soup when refrigerated.

How to Make Chicken Noodle Soup:

Classic chicken noodle soup can take hours and hours to cook but this one takes about 30 minutes and is definitely not lacking in flavor. Using a high quality chicken broth and chicken thighs infuses the soup with wonderful flavor without the lengthy cooking time.

1. In a large soup pot, combine 10 cups water, 4 cups chicken broth and 1 Tbsp sea salt. Bring to a boil then add chicken thighs and boil uncovered or partially covered 20 min, skimming off any foam that rises to the top.

2. In a large skillet saute onion and celery in 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat until golden then add to the soup pot.

3. Add 1/2 lb pasta and sliced carrots to the pot and continue cooking for 15 min at a low boil or until pasta is at desired softness.

4. While pasta is cooking, remove chicken thighs from the pot and shred with forks, discarding any bones and fat. Return shredded chicken to the pot.

5. Season the soup in the last 2 minutes of cooking to retain flavor. Add 1 tsp Mrs. Dash, press in 1 garlic clove, add 3 Tbsp dill and season with salt to taste. Simmer another minute then turn off the heat.

Cooks Tip: Cook partially covered – if you cover completely, your soup may be murky.

Watch Natasha Make Chicken Noodle Soup:


The real secret to amping up the flavor happens in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Adding a pressed clove of garlic is what my Mother does for nearly all of her soups and I have adopted it in my own kitchen. It is a brilliant and easy way to make your chicken soup taste fantastic!

    Thanks for the video! I love the fast motion. I’d do a couple of things differently: When sweating the root vegetables (onion, carrot), a couple of minutes before they are done, put the garlic in. Then, deglaze the pan with some reserved chicken broth or water. THEN pour all of the aromatics into the soup. You are losing some flavor by not putting the garlic on more heat and by transferring with a spoon. Reply

      Hi Mallory, it is difficult to get pasta right in a slow cooker since lengthy cooking will cause that problem. You might add them later in the cooking process and then cook until the desired doneness. Reply

    I have never ever written any review any where but your soup just broke that record. It was amazing. Such simple ingredients and just heaven.

    I added coconut milk instead of cream and thyme instead of dill as recommended by others who didn’t have these ingredients.

    My daughter just loves it! Thank you and continue making such delights. Reply

    Hi Natasha, I replaced the water with chicken stock and chicken broth. I noticed on my box of chicken stock (Kitchen Basics) that the box says not to dilute the stock. The box of chicken broth shows the same instructions (I use organic chicken broth from Costco). Perhaps that’s why some people found the soup was too watery? I would suggest using only stock and broth It was delicious – thank you for the recipe  Reply

    September 20, 2019

    Hello Natasha Love the recipes but when you guys say add a tin of chicken broth or beef broth it looks like a clear soup . Most of these types of soup have loads of veg and or pulses in . What could be used instead? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      September 20, 2019

      Hi Kevin, we used to make the broth out of the Better Than Bouillon (B.T.B) all the time (which is why it’s in the ingredients photo), but after finding out that yeast extract has hidden msg (an ingredient in B.T.B.), we went to making homemade broth which is way tastier and healthier. You can use B.T.B. or carton broth or homemade if you prefer not to use the tin. You are also more than welcome to add more vegetables into it. Reply

    Can I use drumsticks instead of thighs, would I have to do anything differently? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      September 11, 2019

      Hi Suzy, yes that would work fine. If you’re using drumsticks, you can benefit from having it be a bone broth and cook the drumsticks longer – I would do about an hour to infuse the broth with even more flavor. It will be delicious Reply

    July 7, 2019

    Hi Natasha! First of all, I love your soup, it’s one of the best I’ve tasted; but I need to verify something that is driving me crazy. I’ve followed this recipe before, it’s saved on my google favourites, and I remember, that a shredded carrot used to be on the ingredients. I remember following it and shredding a carrot, and cutting the other two carrots in rings. But now I see that this detail is missing! The page was updated on November 2018, so I guess it’s possible that you have modify the recipe a little? Or maybe I’m just confused or going crazy lol.
    Could you please help me and let me know if a shredded carrot used to be there? 🙁
    Thank you!! Reply

    • Natasha
      July 7, 2019

      Hi Samantha, Thank you for the great review! You are absolutely right, rather than cutting the carrots 2 separate ways, we added them all at once to simplify the soup without missing any flavor. Reply

      • Samantha
        July 7, 2019

        Great! Thank you so much! Just one last thing though, did you use two or three carrots in the previous recipe? I’d like it to keep it that way, because the shredded carrot looks kind of pretty. Reply

        • Natasha
          July 8, 2019

          Hi Samantha, I used the same amount of carrots – half were sliced and have were shredded and sautéed with the onion. Reply

  • Safiya Maqba
    July 2, 2019

    Wow! This soup was absolutely heartwarming. Im not normally a great fan of dill but it tasted so good in this soup. I didn’t even add any of the seasoning that you mentioned as i felt that is was perfect without it. I think this is my new favourite! Do you think chicken breast will give the same flavour as chicken thighs? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      July 2, 2019

      That’s so great! It sounds like you have a new favorite! Chicken breast isn’t quite as tender as chicken thighs. If you can get your hands on chicken tenders that would work better but you can make chicken breast work. With chicken breast, it would be better to cook longer (30 minutes or more) Reply

    When you cook soups how do you know what spices or what kind of salt to pair up? For example, when you cook tomato soup what spice/s go together?

    • Natasha
      April 26, 2019

      Hi Ronna, it is difficult to replace salt in soup and achieve the same flavor. I would suggest using the most flavorful bone broth you can get your hands on and add a little extra garlic and dill for flavor – maybe a little extra Mrs. Dash or your favorite salt free seasoning. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    I’ve made this recipe a few times, and the whole family loves it. It’s great! I have a question about method, though. I’m curious as to why you boil the chicken in one pot while sautéing the onion and celery in another? Yesterday I sautéed the onion, celery, and carrots in the pan first, and once they were ready, I added the broth and chicken. Is this just a simple difference in choice of method, or is there another reason why you sautéed in a different pan? Also, in your recipe, how much of the liquid are you adding to the pan to account for the pasta to absorb? Does the pasta absorb four cups of water, or would it be less? Thanks so much! I love your videos and recipes! Reply

    • Natasha
      April 22, 2019

      Hi Elizabeth, it is just the process I use but you definitely can make it a one-pot recipe by sautéing the veggies and then boiling the chicken in the same pot. Besides the broth and water listed in the recipe, I don’t add any additional since there is enough liquid to compensate for the pasta cooking in the pot, just be sure not to add too much pasta because it can make the soup thicker as it absorbs the water. Reply

        3-4 chicken thighs, skin removed (bone in or boneless) untrimmed
        5 cups of Chicken broth (we used low sodium)
        10 cups of water
        Olive oil to saute veggies (do not use butter)
        1 medium onion, finely chopped
        3 medium carrots (2 carrots grated, 1 carrot sliced into thin rings)
        2 medium celery sticks, finely chopped (or thinly sliced if you prefer)
        1/2 lb spiral pasta such as rotini
        3 Tbsp fresh or frozen dill
        1tsp Mrs. Dash (or your favorite seasoning)
        Salt to taste. Reply

          • Barbara
            January 16, 2019

            Oh, an honor to hear from you! I love your videos and recipes. The recipe calls for 14 cups of liquid (10 cups of water and 4 of chicken broth). It never boiled down and with that much water, there weren’t enough veggies and seasonings. What did I do wrong? I follow your recipes to a “t” and they’re always good. (PS – One of our family favs is the creamy avocado pasta salad!)

    to help stop your eyes from watering when chopping onions open a bottle of pure essential oil and set it near by. My favorites are Young Living Peppermint essential oil or Young Living Lemon Essential Oil.
    Give it a try!! Reply

    How do you handle this recipe for leftovers the next day? Do you still make it as written and just preheat over stove? Will the noodles be dried out or have absorbed the liquid? I know someone mentioned cooking noodles separate. Reply

      The fresh dill does add more flavor than dried spices but it should still work just fine 🙂 Reply

  • Irina
    December 3, 2018

    Sounds yummy! For anyone out there making this soup, if you are planning to save some of it for leftovers, my recommendation would be to cook the pasta separately. You’d then add your desired amount of cooked pasta when reheating the soup. In my experience, when I cook pasta right in the soup, it soaks up a lot of the liquid while sitting in the fridge overnight. So, I would always end up with water-logged noodles and not enough broth. Reply

    Really nice recipe. Our three year old had fun helping me prep the ingredients for this soup. I did add about a 3/4 tsp of bullion granules because it tasted a little watery toward the end & a couple bay leaves during cooking. Loved the addition of garlic! I served it with grilled cheese and everyone was happy. I can’t wait to have this for lunch today. I’m sure the flavors are even better today. Thanks for a great recipe Natasha! Reply

    This recipe gets 3/5 stars by Natasha’s usual standards, it is a decent chicken noodle soup. I followed the recipe to a T and the finished product tasted good, but all the ingredients tasted kind of disparate, like there is some binding ingredient missing. And it also lacks in umami. I think it’s sooo close as a recipe, but there is something missing.

    I think I will attempt it again with a bit of parmesan rind in the broth from the start. Reply

    • Natasha
      November 19, 2018

      Hi Lauren, did you try adding the pressed garlic clove and fresh dill at the end? I haven’t had it turn out bland and this is a favorite in our family. Also, a high quality chicken broth and using dark meat (thighs) rather than white meat makes all the difference. I hope that helps! 🙂 Reply

      • Lauren
        November 20, 2018

        Yes, I followed the recipe. Fresh dill, garlic. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and low sodium campbell’s broth.

        Maybe I should have used bone in? I will attempt again some time and use that instead. Homemade broth would help too. Reply

          December 11, 2018

          Hi Patricia, it is difficult to get pasta right in a slow cooker since lengthy cooking will cause that problem. You might add them later in the cooking process and then cook until desired doneness. Reply

    Hi Natasha! I’m planning on making this delicious looking dish tonight, but I’m a little confused about how you make the broth. Do you use chicken broth from a carton, do you make it with the “Better Than Boullion” or do you use both. Can you clarify, please?

    Thank you! Reply

      Hi Wendy, we used to make the broth out of the Better Than Bouillon (B.T.B) all the time (which is why it’s in the ingredients photo), but after finding out that yeast extract has hidden msg (an ingredient in B.T.B.), we went to making homemade broth which is way tastier and healthier. You can use B.T.B. or carton broth or homemade. Reply

      HI Feriha, I’m not sure what you are referring to – boiling the chicken thighs and keeping them at a boil for the amount of time stated in the recipe will definitely give you a safe internal temperature, but in general it is 165˚F for chicken. Reply

    Hi Natasha! I have a question! If I were using better than boullion, how much tablespoons would I put for 5 cups water? I made it and it was super flavorless at the end and had to add a bunch more salt and boullion. But I did make it to taste good, just for next time so I would know the proportion. That would be great, thank you:) Reply
