Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

It’s been a really lazy, cold, &  quiet (Isaac is at his grandparents) Sunday afternoon at my house. It’s rare that the house is clean AND I don’t have anything on my schedule ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I didn’t know what to do with myself after wasting time catching up on reality shows and reading so I made this homemade chicken noodle soup.

This is one of my favorite chicken noodle soup recipes, yep, even better than my grandmother’s version that I posted (sorry grandma) It does take a lil time since you have to roast the chicken and simmer the broth, but it’s so worth it.

It’s full of flavor and downright comforting! I made it to stock in the freezer in case a nasty cold or God forbid, the flu tries to run up in here. It’s always good to have homemade chicken noodle soup on hand when you’re feeling icky because the high sodium canned stuff just makes you feel worst IMO.

This easy chicken noodles soup is full of roasted chicken, sauteed carrots, garlic, onions and celery all simmered in a flavorful, seasoned homemade broth.

Is it wrong that I’m kinda hoping someone will call me and tell me they aren’t feeling well so that I can rush over with this soup???This homemade chicken noodle soup pairs up so well with Grandma’s Grilled Cheese Sandwiches!

TIPS Garlic, onions and parsley can help fight a cold so feel free to load in there! I always do. Season Up That Broth- Be sure to really season up that chicken broth with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning to really bring out the natural flavors! You can also throw in some basil and thyme! Yummy! Short on time? Use Rotisserie chicken if you must. Enjoy the process! Don't attempt to make this soup a busy day. It's a total lazy day recipe. It requires love and care to be the best. To Freeze: Let soup cool, place into freezer bags and lay flat on a baking sheet. When frozen, stack the bags of soup and label them.

    I made this tonight and it was….da bomb!!! I made some minor tweaks to the process but this is my best dish yet for a beginner cook. The hubby loved it and this is WAY better than my mom’s. sorry mom!

    It does take time to prep and cook (took me 3 hrs) but it is SOOOOO worth it. I enjoyed myself.

    My daughter made this soup for her sister, she wasn’t feeling well and it was awesome! The family really loved it. It did take a while to make but like you said, it was well worth it. Getting ready to make a double batch, maybe for freezing, if it lasts. Lol…Thinking about making some for gifting this season also. Thanks for the recipe.

    This soup was delicious. Some leftovers I brought for lunch today from work, and will freeze the rest. It does take a long time!!!! It was def worth it, but def something to cook when you have the WHOLE day to do nothing. Delicious, and Im watching the clock until lunch time so I can eat it : )

    I searched for chicken soup recipes and found yours on YouTube. I made it today and am pleased with the outcome. I went with the rotisserie chicken since my mom had recently taught me how to make my first bare bones chicken soup using the bones and water. It had quite a bit of flavor considering that it’s all natural ingredients. Thanks for sharing the tips about freezing for later too!!
