chicken noodle soup

Here’s a classic recipe for homemade chicken noodle soup that’s comforting, flavorful, and perfect for a cozy meal:


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth (homemade or store-bought)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups egg noodles (or any noodles of your choice)
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion, carrots, and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add the minced garlic to the pot and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth and add the bay leaf and dried thyme. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring the soup to a simmer.
  4. Once the soup is simmering, add the cooked chicken to the pot. Allow the soup to simmer for about 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. While the soup is simmering, cook the egg noodles separately according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain the noodles and set them aside.
  6. Once the soup has simmered and the vegetables are tender, remove the bay leaf from the pot.
  7. Add the cooked noodles to the soup and stir to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if needed.
  8. Serve the chicken noodle soup hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  9. Enjoy your comforting homemade chicken noodle soup!
