- Ingredients you'll need to make homemade Chicken Noodle Soup: Rotisserie chicken, egg noodles, carrots, celery, onion, butter, chicken stock, garlic salt, lemon pepper, poultry seasoning, tarragon and bay leaves.
- Kitchen tools you'll need: You'll need a deep large soup pot with a lid, measuring cups and spoons. a sharp knife and chopping board, a soup ladle and bowls for serving.
- For this chicken noodle soup, I like to shorten the preparation a bit by using a rotisserie chicken from my local Costco.
- Can I use another kind of chicken to make Southern chicken noodle soup? Yes, you can use poached chicken, leftover grilled chicken or roast chicken in the same amount.
- If you plan to poach your own chicken, strain and reserve the broth for use in this soup.
- For ease of preparation, I use a quality prepared chicken stock for the broth. You can certainly use a homemade stock, if you prefer to make your own.
- How can I save time when making chicken noodle soup? To make things go even more smoothly, take a moment the day before to chop the vegetables and have them tucked away in a storage bag in the fridge. Doing so will have them ready to pop straight into the stock pot when you're ready to cook dinner.
- Can I freeze chicken noodle soup? You can, just make an effort not to overcook the noodles when making it initially so they'll hold up to the freezing process. Thaw in the fridge, then reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.

Have you ever tried adding biscuit (canned) dumplings to this recipe?
I haven't but, you could likely adapt it, if you like.
The recipe says 3 32oz chicken broth....is that 3 containers 32 oz each?
Yes, it is.
This is a great recipe. However, with dry noodles, and the thick frozen egg noodles I have experienced problems.
I have found fresh "Fettuccine" to be the perfect noodle for soup. Not thick and doughy like egg noodles, not slimy and mushy like dry noodles.
I am surprised continually, that this is not mentioned in soup recipes.
I've never had an issue with slimy mushy dry egg noodles.That sounds as if they were cooked too long or of poor quality. Fresh fettuccine would be a great addition to any soup, if that's your preference.
Did you make fettuccine homemade? If not where did you get fresh. Thank you
Fresh fettuccine is available in the refrigerated pasta section of most grocery stores.
