Fast Chicken Noodle Soup for the Soul

Most Chicken Noodle soup recipes require a bit of time. First authentic recipes will require you boil the bones of the chicken to make flavorful stock. While this does make an excellent batch of soup I would like to know who has time to create their own stock! I sure don’t so when my husband or I get sick and crave a homemade batch of chicken noodle soup, I have to move fast to satisfy the craving. Our chicken noodle soup recipe is a combination of Pioneer Woman’s chicken noodle soup and this super fast version we found on We promise our fast chicken noodle soup will stick to your bones and soul.

1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 32oz cartons of low sodium chicken broth
2 cups cooked chicken (cubed or shredded)
2 cups whole wheat egg noodles
1 cup chopped carrots
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp flour
1/4 cup of water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh pepper
1 tsp fresh parsley

In a dutch oven over medium heat melt butter. Add onion and celery and cook until soft about 5 minutes. Pour in chicken broths and stir in chicken, noodles, carrots, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. In the meantime create a slurry whisking the flour and water in the small bowl. Add to the soup when there is 5 minutes remaining. When time is up season with more salt and pepper to taste and serve in soup bowls topped with parsley and bread on the side.

*Every Sunday we either roast boneless skinless chicken breasts in the oven or slow cook in a crock pot, this helps speed up the cook time of our favorite lunches and dinners through out the week 🙂
