Chicken Noodle Soup – Tips

  • Homemade chicken stock is best, but good quality store-bought broth works too.
  • For a deeper flavor, roast the chopped onion, carrot, and celery before adding them to the pot.
  • Add a little salt and pepper at each stage of cooking to build flavor.
  • Cook the noodles separately – This prevents them from becoming mushy in the soup.

Recipe Variations

  • Swap the classic chicken and vegetables for lemongrass, ginger, shiitake mushrooms, and rice noodles for a flavorful twist.
  • Add a kick with a pinch of red pepper flakes, chopped chili peppers, or a dollop of Sriracha.
  • Swap the egg noodles for orzo or small pasta shapes, add chopped kale or spinach, and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Omit the chicken and use vegetable broth. Add chickpeas, lentils, or tofu for a protein boost.
