Soup's On: A Busy Mom's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

I searched a long time for a good, easy chicken noodle soup recipe.  Most kids like chicken noodle soup, and we all agree that the homemade kind beats a can of soup filled with preservatives.  If you have the ingredients on hand, you can make this soup in less than 30 minutes. 

I'm delighted that I finally found a good recipe that warms our hearts on a cold night and soothes our souls when we’re feeling poorly. 

We're having this for dinner tonight with peanut butter and honey sandwiches.  Sometimes, I serve it with cornbread. 

I adapted this recipe from the Southern Living Kids Cookbook. The original recipe calls for alphabet pasta, but I rarely find alphabet pasta so I use egg noodles. 

A Busy Mom's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup


1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped  

2 carrots, chopped (I chopped baby carrots) 

2 celery ribs, chopped 

2 garlic cloves, minced 

2 (32-ounce) containers reduced-sodium, fat-free chicken broth 

2 cups chopped cooked chicken ( I poached chicken breasts)

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 

1 cup of egg noodles  (I used one small package because I like noodles in mine)

Salt and Pepper to taste


Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Stir in onion, carrot, and celery. Sauté vegetables in hot oil 5 minutes; add garlic, and sauté 1 minute or until vegetables are tender and mixture smells good. Stir in broth, chicken, and thyme. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Stir in pasta, and cook 11 minutes or just until pasta is tender.
