Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

When the weather turns chilly, I stock my soup pot with this warmer-upper. The creamy, nicely seasoned broth is chock-full of tender chicken, potatoes, carrots and celery. There's old-fashioned goodness in every spoonful of this thick, hearty soup! —Julee Wallberg, Salt Lake City, Utah

"I guess I'm in the minority here. Nobody in my family liked this. My husband added hot sauce and a bunch of other spices in order to find it edible. I seemed to have potential but there was no flavor. Also I think the potatoes and evaporated milk didn't work."

"We love this soup!! It is thick like a stew and the herbs make it taste like its name 'Roasted chicken', full of vegetables and noodles-so comforting and delicious! Don't omit anything,

I made it as written, but used regular whole milk, and less potato and noodles (2 medium peeled and cubed Russet potatoes; and 1/2 of an 11 oz. bag - or 4 ounces of thawed frozen noodles). Use a large soup pot or Dutch Oven this makes at least 5 quarts of soup."

"This is the chicken noodle soup I've been searching for! What makes this is really the herbs used. I didn't add the potatoes, garlic, or milk-- I wanted it a little more basic-- but the flavor was outstanding without those. Even my normally soup-picky husband commented on how good it was. This is the perfect chicken noodle soup for when you're sick or to warm you up on a cold night!"

"I made this soup yesterday per the recipe "except" I didn't bother to measure the noodles so I'm sure there were more than the recipe called for -- I will know next time to measure since more noodles absorb the liquid & is more like a stew than soup. It was very good and my husband loved it (he does most of the cooking) & said it's a keeper. I will definitely be making this again with the required amount of noodles. Like any cooking it does take time to cut up all the veggies but my husband came in the kitchen to be my assistant pre chef so it went faster. By the way one other major change I made was that I used leftover cooked turkey instead of chicken. I do this all the time so didn't even think about when I started writing this review. I freeze leftover turkey from the holidays and use it in casseroles, soups, barbecue etc."

"I think the word soup is used very loosely for describing this recipe. I didn't even get as far as adding the milk and the "broth" was really more of a gravy. I started adding more chicken broth but after it sat for even another 30 minutes, the liquid was pretty much gone again, soaked up by the noodles or who knows what. It tasted OK, but with potatoes and all that going on, let's just call it a stew. I can't say it was worth repeating for me."

"This is definitely a superior chicken noodle soup! My daughter made off with the recipe before I could type it into my recipe collection, and I had to spend a lot of time looking it up again on the web site. I followed two of the suggestions and cooked bone-in thighs in the broth and added peas at the end. Also (since I am not very health conscious) I used real cream instead of evap milk since I think its color is more appetizing, and substituted leaks instead of regular onion. Once, long ago, I heard that what makes great chicken soup (the kind the Jewish moms make) is the combination of leeks and garlic. As well, I added 2 more cups of broth and reduced the potatoes to 2 cups. Mushrooms sauteed first in butter would make a great addition. Finally, I think meat from a rotisserie chicken would be very good in this soup, too. This goes to the top of my list of chicken soups."
