Helpful hints

  • This recipe is best if made with homemade chicken stock instead of canned broth.
  • Fettuccine noodles work well in this recipe as a substitute for egg noodles. Do not overcook or noodles will be mushy.
  • Omit salt if using commercially-prepared broth or stock that contains more than 140 mg sodium per cup.
  • Cook a whole chicken in a slow cooker to make stock and provide some of the chicken for this recipe. (See Slow Cooker Whole Chicken.)

Chicken Noodle Soup

happiness says:


Thank you for the wonderful, flavorful recipes you offer ~ I have yet to find one that we (my husband and I) do not enjoy, including this one. My only critique is that in most soup recipes you recommend Homemade Stock, which I always prefer and try to keep on hand ~ but I cannot seem to locate your recipe for that stock. I would feel much better about your recipe with your recommended wholesome ingredients that the one I try to put together ~ obviously my ingredient knowledge pales compared to yours! Is there any possibility that you might share a healthy poultry and beef stock recipe with those of us who depend upon DaVita for our healthy, wholesome meals? Thank you again for all that you do for us. Dietitian comment: Excellent suggestion! We will add stock recipes.

I know this isn't rocket science but what is the sodium,potassium,phosphorus for 2 chicken bullion cubes in 1 1/2 quarts of water? Each bullion cube is 800 mg of sodium. I have everything for the soup except low sodium broth. Dietitian comment: The sodium is approximately 350 mg higher per serving while the other nutrients are about the same.

Great soup! Made a huge pot. My daughter & her children came over & by the time they left, only had a bowl leftover. That alone speaks volume as she is not usually a big soup lover. Big hit will have many repeat performances!!
