Simple Chicken Noodle Soup

I had never tried to make my own chicken noodle soup before and I found a recipe that made it look kind of easy. Granted I was not making my own noodles, but I was doing the rest from scratch. It turned out to be very simple!

The recipe is from Everyday Food.

You need some carrots, parsnips, onions, egg noodles, plenty of salt and a chicken.

Chop all the veggies up. I really enjoy prepping veggies but if you don't you could use a mandolin or a food processor.

Ok this is pretty much a 2 step meal. Put everything in a big pot.

Cover with water and add a fistful of salt and some pepper. I am not kidding about the salt, you need a lot. Bring it to a boil and then drop the heat to a simmer. Bring another pot of water to boil and cook your egg noodles.

After about 35 minutes your chicken will be cooked. Drain your noodles and get them in a bowl.

Get the chicken out and strip off some meat if you'd like to add some to your soup. Otherwise throw it in the fridge and use it to make some delicious chicken salad or sandwiches. Taste the broth and decide if it needs more salt and pepper. I added another shot of salt to mine.

Pour the veggies and broth over the noodles and you are ready to eat. This was so easy and is the most perfect comfort food.


  1. I just subscribed to EveryDay Foods and I think its terrific! I plan to give these magazines as Christmas gifts to some of my cooking friends this year.
    The soup sounds great!

  2. Like all of the food you make, this looks delicious! I like any kind of "chicken meal" and wish I had a bowl of the soup right now.

  3. I used to subscribe to or buy individual issues of quite a few food magazines. I realized that the only one I consistently cooked from was Everyday Food. Though I also like Cook's Country and the now defunct Cooking for 2.

    That chicken soup looks divine!

  4. Parsnips hua? Never go there... But LOVE chicken soup...
