Sometimes the best recipes are the simplest. You’ll love the easy prep with this classic chicken noodle soup. There’s no need to trim the chicken ahead of time since the fat comes off easily after it’s boiled.
Chicken Noodle Soup Video Tutorial
This simple Chicken Noodle Soup is healthy, hearty, and makes the perfect dish for busy families. My sister Anna came up with this recipe and first introduced me to it when she sent me a pot of soup after our first child was born over 10 years ago. We’ve been making it ever since and even made a Creamy Chicken Soup version!
Chicken Noodle Soup Ingredients
This Chicken Noodle Soup calls for traditional ingredients and a slight twist on the seasonings.
- Chicken: The secret to super tender chicken without crazy long cooking times is using chicken thighs! You can use boneless or bone-in chicken. Thighs also provide extra flavor and don’t dry out like chicken breast does.
- Broth: Our Homemade Chicken Broth is a delicious addition to this soup and provides a rich flavor. However, if you are in a pinch a low-sodium store-bought broth can work.
- Vegetables: Onions and celery sauteed together provide the traditional base for chicken noodle soup flavor. Diced carrots are another traditional vegetable. You can also add any other fresh or frozen veggies you would like.
- Seasonings: Dill and freshly-pressed garlic brighten the flavor palette and I love adding Mrs. Dash (no-salt seasoning).
Pro Tip: When sauteing ingredients for soups, use oil in the pan instead of butter. Butter will solidify when you refrigerate the soup.
The Best Noodles for Soup
I love using nice spiral noodles or egg noodles in my chicken noodle soup. These noodles plump up nicely and make the soup feel really hearty compared to other noodle varieties. Make sure you don’t overcook your noodles, especially if storing the soup or they will get mushy.
For Gluten-Free Chicken Noodle Soup
This soup is so simple and easy to modify for different food intolerances. To make it gluten-free, just sub your favorite gluten-free noodles.
Does Chicken Noodle Soup Cure a Cold?
Growing up, chicken noodle soup seemed to be the cure-all for any ailment. Interestingly, research shows that chicken soup has mild anti-inflammatory effects and can help clear nasal passages. Also, the broth helps hydrate you and the chicken is a delicious source of protein – both of which can help you feel better. While it may not cure all illnesses, Chicken Noodle Soup is a feel-good soup.
The Benefits of Homemade Broth
Homemade Chicken Broth adds a richness of flavor to any soup that cannot be beaten. Our Chicken Bone Broth is nutrient-dense and can help to improve overall health. When you cook the homemade broth in an instant pot – you can have this liquid gold in about 2 hours. It also makes all the difference in how good your soup tastes.
How to Make Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
This easy chicken soup takes about 30 minutes to make. The SECRET to amping up the flavor happens in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Adding dill and a pressed clove of garlic is what my Mother does for nearly all of her soups and I have adopted this in my own kitchen. It is a brilliant and easy way to make your chicken soup taste fantastic!
- Cook the Chicken: In a large soup pot, combine water, Chicken Broth, and salt. Bring to a boil then add chicken thighs and cook uncovered 20 minutes.
- Saute Veggies: In a large skillet saute onion and celery in oil until golden then add to the soup pot
- Add Noodles and Veggies: Add 1/2 lb pasta and sliced carrots to the pot and cook 15 min at a low boil.
- Shred Chicken: As the pasta cooks, remove thighs from the pot and shred with forks (discarding bones and fat), then add the chicken back to the pot.
- Season: In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add Mrs. Dash, dill, and press in 1 garlic clove, and add salt to taste. Simmer another minute then turn off the heat.
Storing Leftover Chicken Noodle Soup
We love making a big pot of chicken soup and enjoying it throughout the week. Keep in mind, if the soup is stored too long, the noodles will turn mushy. If storing longer than 1-2 days, it’s best to store the soup and the noodles separately and recombine right before serving.
- Refrigerated: Cool the soup completely and store covered in the refrigerator. Once noodles are in, the soup should be enjoyed within 2 days. The soup will keep up to a week if you store the noodles separately and combine when reheated.
- To Freeze: If you plan to freeze the soup, wait to add the noodles when you reheat the soup. Chicken soup can be frozen up to 3 months.
- Reheating: Recombine noodles and soup in a pot or microwave-safe bowl and heat to the desired temperature on the stovetop or in the microwave. If using uncooked noodles, reheat on the stove until the mixture boils and noodles are tender.

Easy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
This easy Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is exactly what you imagine when you think of homemade chicken noodle soup - soothing, warming, comforting and rich in flavor. It is loaded with juicy chicken and tender noodles.
- 4 chicken thighs, skins removed (bone-in or boneless)
- 8 cups chicken broth, we used low sodium
- 6 cups water
- 2 Tbsp olive oil, to saute vegetables
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 medium celery sticks, finely chopped
- 2 carrots, sliced into rings
- 6 oz rotini pasta
- 3 Tbsp fresh or frozen dill
- 1 tsp Mrs. Dash, or your favorite salt-free seasoning
- 1 Tbsp sea salt, or to taste
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
In a large soup pot, combine 6 cups water with 8 cups chicken broth and 1 Tbsp sea salt. Bring to a boil then add chicken thighs and boil partially covered 20 min while you prep the vegetables, skimming off any foam that rises to the top.
In a large skillet over medium/high heat, add 2 Tbsp olive oil and sauté onion and celery until softened then transfer to the pot.
Add pasta and sliced carrots to the soup pot and continue cooking for 15 min at a low boil or until pasta is at the desired softness.
While pasta is cooking, remove chicken thighs from the pot and use either forks or your hands to shred the chicken, discarding any bones and fat which should come off easily. Return shredded chicken to the pot.
Season soup with 1 tsp Mrs. Dash (or your favorite seasoning) and more salt to taste if needed. Press in 1 garlic clove. Finally, add 3 Tbsp dill and remove from heat. Enjoy!

Wonderful! We would always use Ramen noodles at our house, but we tried the recipe this time! While it’s homemade, it’s incredibly quick to make at the same time! I truly recommend using this for everyone else. Thank you so much for sharing!!
Hello Mimi, thanks so much for your recommendation, we’re glad that you enjoyed this recipe!
Love your soup recipes Can any soups be frozen??? Love your recipes 🌟🌟👏👏👏
Hi Donna! Thank you. So glad you love them. I include notes in the blog post if the recipe can be frozen if I’ve tested it. If not, you may try searching through the comment section. So many of my readers will share their results if they have frozen the recipe. 🙂
Hi, love your recipes!!
Question- I am making soup to freeze and give away. Have you precooked noodles for future use? Trying to provide everything to someone to defrost, heat and serve.
If yes, would you freeze plain or with a small amount of broth.
Hi Geraldine! If you plan to freeze the soup, wait to add the noodles when you reheat the soup. Chicken soup can be frozen for up to 3 months but the noodles do not freeze well. I assume you could provide the noodles dry with instructions to add them when reheating the soup.
Can you clarify the ratio of broth to water please? In your video you state 10 cups water + 4 Cups broth needed, but your recipe says 8 cups broth and 6 water….this is a big difference.
Hi Brenda! Follow the written recipe. Sometimes we make updates to the recipe but cannot edit the video since it has already been filmed.
I didn’t have fresh dill, so I subbed Mrs Dash for a half teaspoon of Dill Pickle Seasoning, and it taste wonderful! Also added a smidge of umami seasoning to help give it extra depth. Great recipe, thank you!
Great to hear that you loved the results, Andrea!
When I change the number of people to feed it doesn’t change the amounts in the written recipe
Hi Jeanie! That’s correct, it will only change it in the ingredient list.
I love this recipe! I would love to have it ready after work. A question.. is it possible to make in the crockpot?
Hi Peggy! I’m glad you love the recipe. I think you could but I have not tested it in a crockpot to advise or give instructions. Let us know if you experiment with it.
Delicious!!! Made it today for lunch and everyone loved it. I lightly seasoned the vegetables but other than that, no additional salt needed.
That’s just awesome! Thank you for sharing your wonderful review, Angela!

This is my go-to recipe for chicken noodle soup ever since I found it! I’ve made this many times, including the time my mum had COVID, and it never fails! I haven’t been able to get my hands on any dill but even without the dill and Mrs Dash seasoning it’s good! Definitely recommend using chicken thighs and rotini pasta, always makes the soup tastes better.
I’m so glad to hear that, Ingrid. Thank you for sharing!
I made this tonight and immediately after tidying up I had to come here and leave a comment.
This recipe is FANTASTIC! I’ve always been fussy with how I like chicken soup, and the only real winner up until now has been my best friend’s mom’s soup (which is handed down from their Polish grandma and I’m not privy to the actual recipe,) so I’m very happy to say that this will be my go-to recipe from now on!
I followed the recipe exactly; the only thing I added was a couple sprigs of fresh thyme and parsley, as well as a small bay leaf (removed when chicken was added back in.) I also used dried dill and cut the amount to 1 tsp. I didn’t have rotini pasta on hand so I used pennette which was just fine.
I loved it, my husband loved it, and I’m excited to share leftovers with family!
Hi Sari! That’s awesome. I’m so glad to hear that. Thank you for the wonderful feedback and review.
Very good soup, in fact I made it again tonight! I used rotisserie chicken dark and white meat. Dinner was served in 45 minutes! I have used many of your recipes and never cooked one that we didn’t like. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!
I’m so glad to hear that, Kim. Thank you for sharing. Merry Christmas!
I’ve loved your website for many years but I have to tell you the ads that are now running make it nearly impossible to read and look at the recipe. Extremely frustrating and before I give up on your blog I thought you should know in case you can fix it. Thank you very much for your time.

Thank you, Peggy! I’m so glad you love my recipes. God bless.
You never disappoint. You are a wonderful cook. The soup turned out great! Any recipe I have tried of yours has always been a hit. Your recipes have brought me many compliments.
Aaaw, that makes me feel happier today! Thank you for sharing that with us, Kathy.
I like how meaty the soup was and I think I would rate it a 10 except for the dill. You said 3 tbl of fresh dill. I added 2 tbl and it made it very picklesque. Way too much dill. It overrode all the other flavors. I will make it again but maybe try only 1 tbl of dill.
Hi Victoria! Thank you for the feedback! I love dill, but definitely add this to your preferred taste. 🙂
Could you recommend a “go to” chicken seasoning, Mrs Dash is not available where I am.
P.S. Lamb stew was very good
Hi! Here is a list of ingredients in Mrs. Dash seasoning. You could either make a blend of your own that contains similar spices or you could see about buying one that has similar ingredients. I hope that helps.
It was so good, my 5 year old even asked for seconds. A keeper!
That’s a win! Thanks for sharing, Michelle. I’m glad it was enjoyed.
Wow! First time in all my years, I made chicken soup and it turned out fantastic! I used Remes egg noodles, which was the only complaint my son had because he likes my homemade noodles. I saute’ the onions, celery with the garlic together. I also used frozen carrots and dry dill weed. I did not have enough chicken broth (7 cups) so I added 3/4 c of beef broth and another cup of water. I didn’t want to make a trip to the store lol! I feed homeless ppl at my home and this costs me a whole total of $23 and some change. This made just enough to feed 5 ppl twice & still have a bowl or two left for lunch today! Great recipe!
Thank you, Cynthia! That’s wonderful. I’m so glad it loved it! I appreciate the feedback and review.
Hi Natasha! Great recipes. Chicken noodles soup. …instructions says 6 cups water, 8 cups chicken broth.
…video says 10 cups water, 4 cups of chicken
Which is it?
Hi Diane, I always recommend following the written recipe because we can update that if we want to make some minor changes to make the recipe better.
I have made this twice now. First time I didn’t have low sodium chicken broth so I just used regular and it was amazing, we were obsessed. Second time around I decided to get some low sodium chicken broth and give it a go. I felt like I was seasoning forever to try and get it to taste good. Much better the first time.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Taylor! Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
Home run! Don’t skip the dill or Mrs. Dash – they elevate the flavor so much. My daughter asks me to make this every night. We’re obsessed. Been in the rotation for over a year now!
Awesome! Thank you for your good comments and review, Ashlie. We appreciate it.
LOVE LOVE LOVE you and your recipies!! I found a hack that really works for chopping onions without tears and burning eyes! I use it all the time. Simply pour some plain white vinegar on a few paper towels and wipe down your cutting board right before you start chopping. That’s it! I’ve only used this method with wooden chopping boards. Don’t know if it works on others made of different materials. Try it! Also chopping some of the celery tops in addition to the stalks gives an awesome flavor. I believe it’s the best, most flavorful part of the celery!
Great idea, Pam! Thank you so much for sharing that with me!
chopping onions, set a bowl of water near where you are chopping. i have read that it is the water in your eyes that draws the onions so the bowl of water is supposed to replace the eye moisture. i do not have that problem so can’t say if this works but, can’t hurt to try it
Thank you Natasha this is the best chicken noodle soup I’ve tasted and made. I didn’t have chicken broth so I just used water, I skipped the dill since I forgot to buy some at the store and still the soup was amazing.
So glad you enjoyed it, Elena! Thank you for the wonderful review.
The recipe calls for chicken broth and water, but the video has a different amount of broth and water.
I really want to make this. Which amount should I use?
Hello Jane, I always recommend following the written recipe because we can update that if we want to make some minor changes to make the recipe better.
Made this today was absolutely fabulous. Will be making this quite often loved it 🧡
So glad you enjoyed this recipe, Sharon.
So excited to try this tonight! How would you do this if I needed to make it a couple hours in advance?
Hi Krista, if the soup is stored too long, the noodles will turn mushy. If storing longer than 1-2 days, it’s best to store the soup and the noodles separately and recombine them right before serving.
Great recipe!! I’ve made it multiple times. Soooo good! 👍🏼
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Suzanne!
Hey Natasha , I think I’m making this soup on Wednesday. We’re supposed to be getting a thunderstorm , it’ll make a good dinner for then.
Let me know what you think of this recipe, Sandy! I hope you love it. 🙂
I made chicken noodle soup! It was great! My family loved it too!
Great to hear that, Jan. Thank you for sharing!
Great recipe. Please advise, is the serving size, 1 cup? Thank you.
Hi Rosi, the recipe serves 10 people. Sorry, I do not the servings in cups. You may be able to weigh the soup when it’s done and then divide that by 10. That way you’ll at least know how many ounces or grams to fill your bowl to get 1 serving.
I like your recipes very much , but i have a little problem with counting calories / serving…more useful to me should be calories / 100 g …
just asking …
Hi Elena, I have used Caloriecount.com (their recipe analyzer is free). My new recipes also have the nutritional info already, but I have not updated all of my old recipes yet.
Thank you so much for this recipe. I made it for someone in hospice care and their family. It was so easy to make and they absolutely loved it. The only changes I made to the recipe: 1) I didn’t have Mrs. Dash, so I used poultry seasoning plus a little extra thyme instead 2) my garlic bulb seemed small, so I used 3 small cloves instead of just 1; and 3) I used egg noodles instead of rotini.
It’s easily the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever made, and it felt good to bring smiles to a family going through the unthinkable. Thank you!
Hi Jen! That is great, I’m so glad to hear that. Thank you for sharing with us.
This Chicken Soup was AMAZING!!It was so DELICIOUS!! My husband and son who really aren’t soup eaters, loved this one that even my husband asked for seconds😋
That is the best when the family love what we moms make. I’m so glad this was a hit with your boys, Stephanie!
My family loved the chicken pot pie.The best that they have ever tasted. They were so afraid I might lose the recipe.
Just finished making the chicken noodle soup. So easy and delicious. Look forward to future recipes
Hi Georgia, I’m so glad that your family enjoyed the chicken pot pie. I hope you all love this recipe just as much. Thank you for sharing.
I have been making chicken soup for forty years and I have never liked it. This soup is so good. It tastes so good. I just love it! I am so grateful for this quick and easy recipe especially when a family member is sick. It’s wonderful!!
I’m happy to hear that this is the recipe that you loved!
This soup is simply fantastic. My family loved it and were blown away by the addition of dill. We will definitely make this again and again.
I’m so happy you enjoyed that. Thank you for sharing that with us, Ingrid!
So flavorful! Even after going the lazy route and using canned mixed veggies. I also used egg noodles and omitted the garlic. Didn’t have Mrs. Dash so I used Morton Season All. My kids loved it too.
I’m so glad you all loved it, Ashley! Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
I used Bouillon cubes instead of broth and didn’t use celery as it is not available in my area. Delicious!!
Sounds good, thanks for sharing!
I’ve used this recipe several times now and absolutely love it…so does my husband! No reason to ever even try another recipe. 🙏 for Ukraine.
Hi, Marilyn. I’m happy to know you and your husband enjoy this recipe. Thank you for the review.
Just made this – exactly as your recipe directed. Absolutely DELICIOUS. Thank you!!!!
Thanks for your awesome review, Michelle!
Excellent soup! The only things I did differently were added more carrots, sautéed the garlic with the celery and onions and used egg noodles instead of rotini.
Thank you for the recipe!
You’re very welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed this recipe. Thank you for the excellent review.
Hi! This looks delicious and am making it for friends. How much would you consider to be a serving per an adult? I just want to make sure I make enough for them.
I’d say 3/4-1 cup unless this is served as a main course then probably 1 1/2 cups.
Is it best to use regular chicken broth or bone broth?
Hi Mary, I bet that could work! Here’s what one of my readers wrote: “Amazing Chicken Noodle Soup recipe!! I used Chicken Bone Broth, added some Italian seasoning, black pepper, bay leaves, & parsley. Yum! Thank You!”
Great soup. I used rice instead of pasta and Vegeta instead of Mrs Dash. I have never used dill in soups but it really is a nice touch.
Hi Kathleen, thanks for your good comments and feedback. I’m glad you liked it!
How can I add potatoes to the soup. When would I putvrhem in and would I need to add more broth? How much more?
Hi Lorrie, potatoes need about ten minutes in lightly boiling water. If you want to have more broth you can add more. I hope you love this recipe!
I’m making this tonite but only have 4 cups of broth. Can I use boullion cubes to make 4 more cups of the broth?
Hi Jenni, I imagine that will work well too! Please share with us how it goes, if you try this recipe.
Best chicken soup ever!!
Used diatelle pasta instead and 6 thighs. It was awesome!!
I’m so happy to hear it worked well! Thank you so much for sharing that with us!
I have a great chicken soup recipe- while the baby carrots,celery and onion are cooking in butter in large pot add about 1 tablespoon of Bells Seasoning- and also 1 jar of low sodium Better than Bouillion- I add long grain wild rice ( 1/2) a box to simmer and rotisserie chicken at the end- absolutely delicious! But I want to try yours too- I am a staunch follower of yours! My friend Deb gave me the recipe
Thank you for sharing that with us!
Question: 10 cups of water per video or six cups of water per recipe?
Hi Karen, I recommend following the written recipe at all times as we can update that compared to the video that once it has been posted, it can no longer be updated.
I got confused there as well. Your video says 10 cups water and 4 cups broth but the recipe says 6 cups water a 8 cups broth. Which one is better to use?
Hello Amy, sorry for the confusion. I recommend following the written recipe at all times as that one can be updated.
Just made this soup. I am enjoiying a cup of it right now.
The flavor is so good. Another hit! Thanks Natasha!
I’m so glad it’s a hit! Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
Just made this soup for my family and it is lovely:D
Elin Elisa Lind from Norway
Aww, that’s the best! Thank you so much for sharing that with me, Elin!
Is there a link for the cute turquoise tongs you use in the video? The ones you used to pull the cooked chicken out of the pot?
Hi Tanya, you can find our favorite kitchen tools in our Amazon Affiliate Shop HERE. The tongs are under the Kitchen Tools section!
Is it possible to make this recipe with cooked shredded chicken ? Would I still have to add 6 cups of water to the 8 cups of chicken stock ?
HI Rebecca, that should work great but I would probably use a little more chicken broth and a little less water since you won’t be adding to the flavor of the broth by adding cooked rotisserie chicken.
Hi Natasha, thank you for the suggestion will definitely need to try it soon! I’ve tried the original way and it was superbe but as a new mom I’m trying to find faster way to make family dinner!
Sounds like a good plan, Rebecca. I hope it becomes your family’s new favorite!
The recipe says it makes 10 servings. Is the serving size one cup??
Hi Susie, that’s right, it can serve up to 10 people so more or less 10 bowls too.
I have made this soup several times for guests. Everyone loves it when I do. Thanks
I’m really happy to hear that, Linda. Thank you for sharing that with us!
It is me again…chicken noodle soup for Christmas dinner. I forgot to rate your recipe Excellent*****
Thank you for the awesome review, Michelle!
Everyone last year wanted something different for Christmas dinner. I made your soup everyone loved it so much they want it again this year. This is the best chicken soup recipe I have eaten in past 45 years of cooking. Thank you
That’s wonderful to know, Michelle. Thank you so much for sharing that with us, we appreciate it!
I’m a picky eater and don’t like the veggies or meat in many recipes. I love your recipes that use things I do like. Your seasonings are excellent and timely when added. NOW, how can I save your recipes that I love and eliminate ones I don’t?
I’m so glad you’re enjoying my recipes, Lynda! One of my readers mentioned they like to bookmark my recipes to their browser folder! I hope that helps!
Love this recipe!!!! And wet a paper towel and just place it next to the onion you are chopping. Onions make you cry because the fumes are drawn to moisture (your tear ducts) if you have moisture near it, the fumes will never make it to your eyes!
Great idea on the paper towel! Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
I love your recipes but with this one the amount of broth and water are different in the video and the recipe below. The ratios are not even the same. Help. 😃
Hi there Jacqueline, I always recommend following the written recipe as that can be updated. I hope it becomes a hit!
It was! I will be making it again (my son also loved it) – so good!
That’s just awesome! Thank you for sharing your wonderful review!
Except for using four boneless, skinless chicken breast halves instead of thighs, I made this exactly according to the recipe. Wonderful for dinner on a chilly evening along with a grilled cheese sandwich! Next time, I might reduce it to three chicken breasts, try butter instead of olive oil to saute the vegetables, and try basil instead of dill.
Thank you so much for sharing that with me, Steve!
Trick for chopping onions is to wet a paper towel next to chopping. The chemical is absorbed into the paper towel.
That’s a good trick, Lisa. Thank you for sharing!
I wore swim goggles when I would chop onions…then a friend told me how to wet a paper towel, wring out a tiny bit of water and leave it crumpled up next to the onion you are chopping up…it really does work. The fumes goes into the wet paper towel, not your eyes.
I heard that advice from different people so I think that works! I’ll make sure to try that out next time. Thank you for sharing, Jamie.
I made the chicken noodle soup it was very good I love soup in the winter
Thank you for sharing love your recipes Natasha
You’re welcome! I’m so happy you enjoyed it, Theresa!
I leave a wet paper towel beside me when cutting onions. Works great. 🙂
Great idea, Sandra!
I can’t wait to make this….can I use dried dill…if so, how much? I don’t have any fresh. Thank you!!
Hi Theresa, someone else shared this in the comments “I followed your recipe (omitted the garlic) and used dried dill–so GOOD! I tend to add to many things to my chicken noodle soup but I won’t be doing that anymore. The dill was the secret here for me because many recipes call for Italian seasonings which never tasted right to me.”
Generally speaking you always use 1/3 as much of a dried herb when using that instead of the fresh which is what I did here. You can always add more if you taste and it’s not enough.
Wow! This soup is awesome. I used chicken thighs and it was so moist. The dill added a special flavor.
Thank you so much for sharing that with me, Janet! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
Can I use chicken breast instead of thigh? I’m not a fan of dark meat.
Hi Julie, yes, chicken breast or chicken tenders would work for this chicken soup.
I followed your recipe (omitted the garlic) and used dried dill–so GOOD! I tend to add to many things to my chicken noodle soup but I won’t be doing that anymore. The dill was the secret here for me because many recipes call for Italian seasonings which never tasted right to me.
Yes, that is right. The dill really brings so much flavor to the recipe and I’m glad you loved it!
I have tried many chicken noodle soup recipes, but this one was awesome. My picky eater loved it. The dill added some extra special flavor to it. Thank you Natasha.
Yay, I’m happy to hear that! Thank you for the review, I’m glad your picky eater enjoyed it!
That was delicious!! My husband said it was the best soup he’s had! Chicken felt apart when we went to shred it. We added extra garlic and dill as we love those particular flavors. This dish is a keeper for sure!
I’m so happy to hear that! Thank you for sharing your great review, Brigette!
My husband makes fun of me but I just swimming goggles that latch at the back!!! Works so well!
That’s hilarious, I love it!
Do you put raw chicken in or cooked chicken? I couldn’t find that anywhere!
You use raw chicken in this recipe. I hope you enjoy! Let me know how it turns out. 😊.
This soup was really yummy and I also used the thickener from the creamy chicken noodle soup and it was primo. Thank you!
Glad you enjoyed it, Melissa!
My family absolutely loved this delicious soup. I sautéed three slices of bacon with the onions and celery and I also added bok choy. Didn’t have garlic or dill and it still turned out incredibly delicious!
Sounds awesome! Thank you for sharing your good comments and review with us, Barbara.
So, amazing soup!! Thank you! Also, when I wear contacts, onions don’t bother me…haha!
Oh that’s interesing! Sounds like a good way to protect your eyes!
I store my onions in a bag and in my refrigerator. I never have a problem with tears when I cut the onions.
Thank you so much for sharing that with me, Mike!
Agree with that, I recently had to start wearing my glasses (getting older and my eyes are dryer now) and I told my husband that now I cry while dicing onions. I really miss my contacts!!!
To NOT cry when peeling onions try pluging your nose with tissue or whatever you can think of as long as you don’t smell the onion you won’t cry!
This was so delicious!! My husband who hates soups absolutely loved it! I do want to add I didn’t have Mrs. Dash on hand so I looked up a homemade recipe for it. I have to say wow it was good!! Thank you for all your recipes I have used alot of them and they are great!!
Hi Paulette, thanks for the amazing feedback and review! I’m gad you loved it.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
Extremely delicious and comforting. Everyone loved it. Will definitely be making this again
Glad the recipe was a hit, Kim. Thanks for your great feedback!
You’re welcome! Just one question. I noticed that the amount of chicken broth and water in the written recipe is different from the one in the video. Could you please clarify what amount is best?
Hi Kim, we recently have been using more broth and less water for more depth of flavor.
Can anyone tell me if following recipe to the T how many cups it makes?
Hello Brian, the serving size is also on the recipe card. It can serve up to 10 people so more or less 10 bowls too.
I find that if my yellow onions are chilled they are not so pungent. I just put them in the refrigerator a couple hours before I slice/chop them. It makes a huge difference! Sometimes, when I’m in a hurry, I stick them in the freezer — not to freeze but to give a good chill. Let me know if it works for you. Make sure they’re cold!!!!
Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
Be sure to use a sharp knife to cut the onions to avoid exposing cells.
Yes a sharp knife is also a must!
It was chicken soup kind of day for our family and I made this. Although, I didn’t have rotini or egg noodle handy, only bow tie pasta. It was still delicious and hit the spot on a rainy day. Thanks Natasha!
Hi Melissa, glad it was a success! Thank you for your awesome review and feedback, I appreciate it.
If you put your onions that you’re going to use for a recipe in the fridge for a half hour or just 10 minutes in the freezer they won’t make you cry
Thanks for the tip, Samantha!
Very easy to make and super delicious soup! The whole family enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing this great recipe Natasha.
That’s just awesome! Thank you for sharing your wonderful review!
This is truly wonderful! Like you, I like my celery chopped fine but I do love more garlic & I like to add sliced mushrooms. NOW that is chicken noodle soup. 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing that with me! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
Hi I was wondering because I’m not a big fan of onions at all. Will it still be the same without the onion? 🙂
Hi Elvira, it will be missing some flavor, but you might try some onion powder instead or just season a little more to taste.
Love your videos and recipes. Delicious and simple to make 😊
You’re so nice! Thank you for that wonderful compliment!
One quick question here…
Could you possibly tell me what the spices are in the Mrs. Dash seasoning??
I am making the soup, and thought we had that seasoning for sure until I looked, and now I cannot find it!
Hi Miriam, I also quickly searched and found this info on their website.
Well, actually, I already made the soup without the Mrs. Dash seasoning in it, and everyone loved it!!
Thank you so much for that information, though. That will be nice to have in the future!
You’re welcome and great to hear that everyone loved it. Thanks, Miriam!
Can you please tell me the weight of chicken thigh you used in the given recipe. Thanks!
Hello Hadia, sorry but I didn’t measure the chicken that way in this recipe but I used the regular sized chicken.
This soup is so amazing in taste and simplicity. Thank you for sharing this!!!
You’re welcome! Thank you too for your great feedback.
Can I substitute chicken breast for chicken thighs? This looks like a great recipe
Hi, 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).
Nice and easy. I like to take a whole chicken and roast in oven until done. I take it and put it in the water with bay leaf salt and whole peppercorn and simmer for 30 minutes. Let in cool till next day. drain some fat and shred whole thing. Use celery, onion and carrot all thick cut put in soup add parsley and simmer till done add chicken. serve over wide egg noodle. the best
Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
Made this recipe for the first time tonight on this snowy day. So so good! Only tweet was I added more chicken! Was a hit will definitely make again!!
So good to know that. Thank you so much for sharing your good feedback with us!
This was the BEST chicken noodle soup I’ve ever had😍 second time making. Added cayenne. So amazing
That’s just awesome Hailea! It sounds like you have a new favorite!
Hello! Well this is more of a question but I love the recipes and am excited to try them! I have a very picky eater (my fiancé) does not like onion or celery, but I really want to try making this soup. What other veggies would you recommend?
Hi Hannah, onion powder or dried onion flakes are excellent substitutes too
I trick would be to blend up the onion and celery and make a paste, or shred it so it won’t be noticable. 😉
I am not a fan of celery I added Bok choy and some onion powder. I also added some better than bouillon roasted chicken. It was delicious♡
I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
awesome one of my fav recipes love all your recipes been watching for a while
Thanks for sharing, Patricia. I’m glad you’ve been enjoying my recipes!
Hi I love all you’re recipes and I Heard that outing an onion into the fridge an hour before cutting would prevent tears have not had a chance to try it yet hope it works
Thanks for sharing, Angie. I think that works!
Love homemade chicken noodle soup. My favorite herb to add is tarragon. Give it a try! You’ll love it! I use a Costco rotisserie chicken, boiled off after indulging it for a couple meals (just my husband and I), however, our 17 yr. old grandson loves it! I have to figure out how to get it to him when he goes to college! To say I get my money’s worth from one chicken is an understatement!
Thanks for your comments and suggestions, Donna. We appreciate it!
Really good tasting Chicken noodle soup.
I’m so happy you enjoyed that, Colleen! Thank you for that wonderful review.
I have a hard time with onions also, so I just keep a small fan in the kitchen and set it on low and a couple of feet away from the cutting board and it doesn’t seem to bother my eyes any more. Made your Chicken Lasagna two days ago and did your soup tonight both easy and yummy!
Nice, thanks for sharing that tip with me. I’m glad you enjoyed the lasagna, thanks for your good feedback, Carrie!
Hello! I am going to make this tonight but I don’t have dill OR celery. Should I replace it with something else or will it still be as tasty? Thanks!!
Hi Tanya, you can omit both if you don’t have them. We prefer it with both. The fresh dill does add more flavor, but you can omit it or replace it with parsley.
Just made the soup, delicious!
Thanks, another one of your great recipes!
Yay, glad you loved it!
Made this just as recipe is given. Quick, easy and flavorful. Will definitely make again.
I’m so happy to hear that! Thank you for sharing your great review.
First time making a pot of soup other than chili and it turned out great! Thanks!
I’m glad you liked this recipe, Steve. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us!
Just a question 🙂
The recipe and the video calls for different amounts, which is the correct one?
Hi Josie, we updated the recipe since we found that using more broth gives it richer flavor. It still works the original way, but there is no way to change a video once it is published. Sorry for the confusion and I’m so happy you love the recipe!
Hi there! I would like to make your chicken noodle soup one night this week. I only have dried dill. Can you advise how much dried dill to use in place of the fresh dill? Thank you!
Hello Tay, you would use less dried than fresh. For example, if a recipe calls for 1tbsp fresh, I will use 1 tsp dried. I hope that is helpful.
Thank you! So delish! So easy. You are my favorite to watch.
I’m so happy to hear that! Thank you for sharing your great review.
So yummy!! Family loved it! Natasha, you must try butterballs with it!!! ☺️😉
Love it! Thank you for your great feedback and suggestion, Dana.
Love this recipe, very easy and super tasty!
Thank you for your nice review, Karen. Appreciate it!
What a great, easy recipe! My family loves it! I didn’t have the dill or Mrs. Dash the first time, and the soup still turned out delicious. I’m going to be making it again but with the dill and Mrs. Dash, as I would love to see how it will taste. I often like to make meals for a few elderly friends and I truly think they will appreciate this. I don’t know how I Stumbled upon on your recipe page, but I am truly grateful as everything I’ve made turns out just delicious! Thank you!
That’s so nice to know, Julie. Sounds like a great plan for next time, I’m sure it will already be perfect!
Hi Natasha! I was just wondering in the video you say 10 cups of water and 4 cups of broth but the recipe calls for something else different. I just wanted to clarify which is correct?
Hi Kathy, we updated the recipe since we found that using more broth gives it richer flavor. It still works the original way, but there is no way to change a video once it is published. Sorry for the confusion and I’m so happy you love the recipe!
Dear Natasha- I love your recipes and presentations you make. It really encourages me to cook and most of them very easy to follow.
Aww, that’s the best! Thank you so much for sharing that with me.
OMG. This recipe is amazing. My sister was sick, and I made this soup for her; and I asked her if she liked it, and she said she couldn’t stop eating it. The dill adds a nice flavor to the soup. I am making this soup again for dinner for my hubby and me. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.
I’m so glad to hear that, I hope your sister is doing better now. Thank you for sharing your awesome review with us!
I made the soup for lunch today and my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. I have enough now for a few more meals I hope it freezes ok. thanks natasha
That’s so great Ruth! I’m so glad you both enjoeyd this recipe! You can freeze some of the leftovers and heat it up the next time.
What can I use instead of Mrs Dash what dry seasoning should I add and how much. I do not want to make my own Mrs Dash.
Hi Sarah, salt and pepper work great. I have forgotten to add Mrs Dash in the past and as long as you add that dill/garlic at the end, it will have plenty of flavor.
I’ve used poultry seasoning and it works great!!
Is it possible to sub the chicken thighs for chicken breasts?
Hi Sophie, 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).
