Homemade chicken noodle soup that’s ready in under 30 minutes! Full of juicy chicken, tender beans, soft egg noodles and assorted veggies.
Hi friends, happy Monday! Yes, I realize it is the end of August and quite hot in most of the country. It was over 100 degrees here in Fort Worth all weekend and I barely stepped foot outside. Being almost 29 weeks pregnant does not pair well with 103 degree temps.
Nonetheless, I’m sharing an easy recipe for homemade chicken noodle soup. I had a craving for simple flavorful soup and this hit the spot.
What really gives this soup the most flavor is the mirepoix: carrots, celery and onion sauteed until almost browned with olive oil and butter. This takes about 5-10 minutes. You want the onions to be translucent. Stop right before they start browning and add the rest of the ingredients.
I use my favorite stock base, Better Than Bouillon, mixed with water for this broth base.
The egg noodles cook in the broth during the last ten minutes of cooking. This homemade chicken noodle soup keeps in the fridge very well — I made a large batch for lunch and ate it every day for a week! I used my large Calphalon stock pot.
My little photography assistant couldn’t help but get in on the action. I’m sure he’d love a mini bowl of this soup.
