Chicken and Noodle Soup Recipe

Chicken and Noodle Soup Recipe

I cook most of the weekend meals and share weekday cooking duties with my wife. I also like to take food to neighbors, co-workers and our parents. And I try to send things like this hearty soup to people I know are sick.—Terry Kuehn, Waunakee, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 2 hours 55 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 stewing chicken (about 4 pounds), cut up
  • 3 quarts water
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 5 celery ribs, coarsely chopped, divided
  • 4 medium carrots, coarsely chopped, divided
  • 2 medium onions, quartered, divided
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped green pepper, divided
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 8 ounces uncooked medium egg noodles


  • 1. In a large stockpot, combine the chicken, water, broth, half of the celery, carrots, onions and green pepper, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and the bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-1/2 hours or until chicken is tender. Chop the remaining onion; set aside.
  • 2. Remove chicken from broth. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones and cut into bite-size pieces. Discard bones and skin; set aside.
  • 3. Strain broth and skim fat; return broth to stockpot. Add the salt, chopped onion and remaining celery, carrots, green pepper and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add noodles and chicken. Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until noodles are tender. Yield: 16 servings.

"I'm not one for cooked celery or carrots but I loved this recipe. Husband agreed it's a keeper. It is a little time consuming but the flavor is well worth it."
