This hearty chicken noodle soup is ready in under 45 minutes and full of rich flavor. It’s sure to become a family favorite.
It’s already mid August and I’m really try to savor these last days of summer. But the days are getting shorter and I know that fall is on the way.
As much as I love summer, I like fall almost as much and when the weather starts to turn cooler, it definitely puts me in the mood for soups and stews. They just make you feel warm and cozy.
I’ve been making this chicken noodle soup for many years and it’s a family favorite. It’s great for busy weeknights because it can be on the table in under 45 minutes, from start to finish.
I usually serve it with a salad and some warm bread. Simple and delicious!
Soup is actually a very easy thing to make. This homemade chicken noodle soup only has six main ingredients.
You could make this recipe even more simple by buying carrots, celery and onion that are already chopped. I also usually use uncooked chicken, but if you have cooked chicken on hand (like a rotisserie chicken), you can definitely use that instead.
The other thing I love about making soup is that it’s usually just as easy to make a double or triple batch. This chicken noodle soup, in particular, is easy enough to make on a weeknight and it freezes beautifully.
I usually portion it out into single servings, which makes it great to grab for lunch or a super quick dinner.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 medium or large carrots, peeled and chopped
- 2 large stalks of celery, chopped
- ½ medium onion, chopped
- 1 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 6 cups chicken stock

If you are not going to serve immediately, you can let the soup simmer, covered, over low heat without the pasta. 10 minutes before you’re ready to eat, increase heat to medium high, add pasta and cook as directed above.
