Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
You can't beat homemade chicken noodle soup on a cold, wet day. The homemade noodles are easy and make all the difference in this recipe. Don't use store bought!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
- 2 large carrots , sliced or diced
- 3 stalks of celery , sliced
- 1/2 onion , finely chopped
- 1 tsp or one clove chopped garlic
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 large cans of chicken (cooked chicken can be used)
- 6-8 cups chicken broth
Season to taste (approximately 1/2 to 1 tsp of each)
- Kosher salt
- 1 bay leaf
In your soup pot, cook the carrots, celery and onion in oil on medium til the onions are translucent, then add the garlic and cook another minute. Add the chicken, seasonings, and broth.
Let cook for 30 minutes on medium/medium low (just so it’s bubbling). Make the egg noodle dough (below) during this time.
Bring to a good boil and add the noodles, a few at a time so they stay separate.
Let cook for a few minutes after the last noodles are added and it’s done!
Homemade Egg Noodles
Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 eggs , beaten
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Add the beaten egg, milk, and butter. Knead dough until smooth, about 5 minutes. Let rest in a covered bowl for 10 minutes.
On a floured surface, roll out dough to desired thickness (I roll it as thin as possible until it's see through and can't get much thinner). Use additional flour as needed to keep dough from sticking to rolling pin.
Cut into desired lengths and shapes.
Allow to air dry before cooking.
