How To Make Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup - Comfort in a Bowl

My Mom's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe - it's comfort in a bowl!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup - Comfort in a Bowl

It's snowy and cold and my two youngest boys are sick - so what should I make for dinner?  Chicken Noodle Soup of course!  My mom made the best chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles.  When she made soup, I was in kid heaven. 

Unfortunately, I did not get my mom's recipe before she passed away but over the years I have come up with a recipe that's sort of close to Mom's.  Mine is quicker to make, no homemade noodles, and is tasty...but not quite Mom's. 

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

📖 Recipe

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup ~ Comfort in a Bowl

Print Recipe Save Recipe


  • 2 pounds of cooked skinless boneless chicken breasts shredded or cut into bite sized pieces {I brine & poach my chicken for extra flavor and moistness}
  • 64 ounces of chicken broth {I like to buy 6 - 32 ounce boxes in a one package at Sam's club-this is quite economical}
  • 2 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 stalk of celery sliced
  • Fresh ground salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 - 16 ounce package of broad noodles


  • Place the chicken broth in a stockpot over medium high heat and bring just to a simmer.  Add carrots and celery and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • In another pot, prepare your noodles according to the direction on the package, cooking until just tender.  Drain the noodles and add them the the stockpot along with the shredded chicken.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat until nice and hot-serve!

As with any of my recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
