Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

I like making homemade noodles and I often add carrots, potatoes and corn to this soup. To me, homemade soup means homemade bread, too! Rich soup and fresh bread...what great country food at any time of year.

  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (2 to 3 pounds)

  • 1 bay leaf

"I made this recipe using some fresh herbs, rosemary and thyme. I also added some fresh ginger to the first process, then chopped a portion of that to go into the soup. And I added chopped garlic. It was delicous! Will definitely make this again."

"I also boiled off just regular chicken breasts and so added an extra tsp of chicken bouillon since I won't have the flavor from the bone."

Reviewed Jan. 27, 2010

"I'm sad to admit that this was my first attempt at chicken noodle soup. The recipe suggested using Debone chicken, that was not my "cup of tea." So, I boiled several chicken breasts with the quarts of water, later cubed these, and it worked out great. I was taken away with the flavor of this soup and it tasted "healthy" too. I shared it with several friends and they had the same positive reaction, Hmmmmm, so goooooooood! This soup couldn't be better if may say so myself."
