Our Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

As I mentioned in a previous post, we absolutely LOVE making chicken noodle soup from scratch at in our house.  Especially during the winter months, it seems to always be our go-to meal choice.  Evie loves it, we love it...WIN-WIN. :)  I wanted to share with you our recipe for making the soup, since I really think it's easy enough for ANYONE to make and tastes soooooo much better than anything in a can.  

  • Whole chicken, cut up (tutorial for cutting a whole chicken can be found here)
  • Water
  • 1 medium/large onion
  • 2 small carrots (or 1 large carrot)
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • Chicken and beef bouillon cubes
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • Thin egg noodles (make separate)

  1. Before starting, make sure that you rinse the chicken thoroughly with cold water.
  2. Once your chicken is rinsed, place pieces into a large pot.  Depending on how large the chicken is, you may not want to put in all pieces.  We usually leave two pieces out of the soup and freeze for future use.
  3. Fill pot with water (I usually fill about 3/4 of the pot)
  4. Place pot with chicken and water on stove top on high heat.  
  5. After about 10 minutes, you should see some foam rise to the top.  Remove all foam using a ladle.  Reduce heat as to not let a rapid boil develop.
  6. Peel your onion and cut horizontally into 4-6 thin slices.  Place cut up onion on frying pan and fry on each side until onions are nicely browned.
  7. Clean, peel, and cut up carrot into 1 inch pieces
  8. Clean and cut up celery stalk into 1 inch pieces
  9. Drop in fried onion, celery, and carrot into the pot
  10. Drop in one cube of chicken bouillon and one cube of beef bouillon
  11. Let everything simmer on a medium setting for 60-90 minutes.  The water should not be rapidly boiling.  The longer the soup simmers, the better it usually tastes. :)
  12. During this waiting time is when I cook my noodles.  I recommend thin egg noodles boiled in lightly salted water until soft.
  13. Once soup is near complete, add salt and pepper to taste and let simmer for a few more minutes.
Your soup is now done!  Enjoy! :)
