Easy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe (VIDEO)

This Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is exactly what you need on a cool day to warm you from the inside out. Filled with juicy chicken and tender noodles, this easy chicken noodle only takes about 30 minutes to make.

P.S. Our secret to seasoning the soup at the end is worth discovering.

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.

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!

  1. 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.
  2. Saute Veggies: In a large skillet saute onion and celery in oil until golden then add to the soup pot
  3. Add Noodles and Veggies: Add 1/2 lb pasta and sliced carrots to the pot and cook 15 min at a low boil.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  • 2 medium celery sticks finely chopped

      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.

    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!

      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).

    Hi Natasha! I am making this soup tonight, and was wondering if I could add more chicken broth. Would that change the amount of water I put in the soup? Also, would wheat noodles be okay to put in the soup? I LOVE watching your videos and consider you a great inspiration! I watch your videos all the time! You have made me want to cook even more than I do! Thanks!

      Hi Molly, I would replace water with chicken broth straight across. I haven’t tried wheat noodles but make sure to cook them to your desired doneness and be careful not to overcook them so they don’t get mushy. I’m so glad you find inspiration on our blog. Thank you so much for that feedback.

    Is there an error in the amount of the water/broth stated in the recipe? 14 cups with only 2 carrots looked nothing like the picture. I ended up removing at least 5 cups of liquid before adding the veggies. There is no possibility the picture shown represents 14 cups of water/broth with the chicken and veggies as listed.

    Natasha: Try chilling the onion before chopping. Give it 20 or 30 minutes in the fridge to calm down the juices so they are not so volatile. Use the freezer for a little shorter time if in a hurry.

    I have made this recipe at least a dozen times now over the past several years. I don’t take the time to memorized it which is why I keep in on a Pinterest board and coming back to this page. I feel the need to finally write a comment. This is by far the BEST chicken noodle soup I have ever had! My mother always added tarragon to chicken noodle soup and for the longest time as an adult that’s what I did too. Of course I liked the family recipe with tarragon, but dill is SO much better, in my opinion. I’m certainly glad I tried this recipe one random day when I couldn’t find the old one. For anyone making this the first time, using chicken thighs definitely does make a difference. I won’t ever go back to using breast meat for chicken noodle soup again. This recipe is hands down my *favorite* chicken noodle soup. Thanks, Natasha!

    Tips Cutting Onions without Crying:
    1) Try dunking the onions in Ice Water for 5-10 minutes.
    2) Refrigerating them overnight or freezing them for a hour helps.
    3) I using a food chopper I have several if a bunch use a food processor works great for dicing onions and no tears also great for celery and other veggies.
    4)Cut them under a vent or use a small running fan thus dispurses the sulfur fumes away from your eyes.
    5) Wearing goggles is another option.
    6) Using a really sharp knife cut the root off and walk away for a few minutes that’ll release the sulfur gas.

    Omg. So good! I loved it! I didn’t put the noodles in it because i was making it for tomorrow. My husband and son tasted it and thought it needed more chicken broth so will add that tomorrow. Love the dill a great touch! Going to make your blueberry lemon cake tomorrow. Thanks for the recipes! love watching your videos. Got me back into loving cooking/baking again!

    Hey natasha! I really loved this recipe, however after letting the soup stand for a few hours the noodles sucked in all the water. And it turned out to be really mushy. Is there any way to fix that? And what did I do wrong?

      Hi Joanne, 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).

      Hi Mena, 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.

      Don’t add the pasta at all to the soup…cook it separately, and when ready to serve; put some cooked pasta into soup bowls and pour soup over…this way, the pasta will not soak up all the liquid, and it stays as fresh as when first made, and the pasta never gets mushy…I NEVER add pasta to any soup I am cooking

    I see someone else mentioned holding a match in your mouth, with the sulfur side out. What I wanted to add is that it can be a paper match, doesn’t have to be wooden. It won’t work for your videos, cuz you’d probably look silly with a match sticking out of your mouth, but do try it off camera. It really works.

    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.
