Yankee Doodle Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
All six of our grandkids devour this soup! I always make a huge batch so there’s plenty to share. Nothing feels better in your tummy when you’re under the weather or just out of sorts. There’s something magic about it that makes everything seem right with the world.
On Christmas Day we always have huge pot simmering on the stove so everyone can snitch a bowl whenever they want. We usually have three different soups. Stay tuned for our other satisfying favorites.
This is a simple two step process. The first step is making the tasty broth and it can be done ahead. Then assemble the soup the day you want to serve it.
Here is the finished dish!
Yankee Doodle Chicken Noodle Soup
All American Favorite Comfort Food
- 3 pound bag boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 3-4 each large outer stalks of celery cut in large chunk include leaves and all
- 2-3 each large carrots, scrubbed and cut in large chunks
- 1/2 each medium onion, cut in chunks
- 2 or 3 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
- generous amount fresh cracked pepper to taste
For the finished Soup
- 2-3 cups sliced carrots thick slices
- 2-3 cups sliced celery thick slices
- 4 ounces Better Than Bouillon Chicken Soup Base or more to taste
- 3 quarts water approximately
- 1 Tbsp parsley or to taste
- 24 ounce bag of frozen egg noodles
Put chicken breasts (You can even start from frozen, I usually do!) celery, carrots, onion, garlic and a generous cracking of fresh black pepper. No salt. Cover with enough cold water so it’s all submerged and simmer until the chicken is tender. From frozen, this will take about 2 hours or so but if it’s on longer, that’s ok too. The kitchen will smell great and the resulting broth makes a great base.
Now let's make it into a beautiful bowl of soup!
Remove the chicken breasts and shred or dice it as you prefer and set aside. Using a wide slotted spoon, remove the vegetables and discard or use as you please.
Retain broth and add water enough to make 3 1/2 to 4 quarts. Bring to a boil and add frozen noodles along with raw sliced carrots and celery. Stir in about 4 ounces (or more to taste) of Better Than Bouillon Roasted Chicken Base. In my opinion, nothing makes better soup.
When noodles and vegetable are tender, add chicken and simmer til heated through. Add parsley!! Somehow adding parsley makes everything look prettier and taste better!!
