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!
Watch me make this homemade chicken noodle soup
from start to finish!

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 totally 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.
