This was my very first time making chicken noodle soup. And I want to thank you Inez for such a simple recipe. It was delicious we all had 2 bowls. Made this for DH as he is recovering from surgery and he said it was just perfect! My DD wanted some for luch today too. Thanks again for the delicious, easy recipe!!

I've also found that if you add a can of evaporated milk when you add your chicken and noodles, it thickens the soup up and makes it nice and tasty.

This was my first time cooking homemade chicken soup as well, a delicious, easy recipe. I only had 3 cans of broth; I added one can of water, added a little more boullion. I also used orzo rather than egg noodles. I think I put too much orzo in; as the orzo expanded the broth decreased, so I added about about 3/4 of chicken stock. Thanks for a great recipe, Inez!

Great, easy recipe! I bought a rotisserie chicken and cut the meat off the bones, using half for this recipe and half for HDMac's "White Cheese Chicken Lasagna." (Also delicious BTW) I used extra egg noodles (about 2 cups dry) and extra potatoes (2 small) because my kids like their soup thick and with lots of noodles. Our whole family enjoyed this! We did not think it had too much seasoning, but we generally use a lot of spices in our cooking.

Fantastic soup!!! I really enjoyed it. Next time I make it I think I am going to cut down on the spices a bit, I think I got a little carried away. It was really nice to make this soup on a cold snowy night. I didn't even put cracker in my soups, and I almost always do that.

This is the 3rd chicken soup recipe I have tried and there is always something I didn't like about the soup. UNTIL NOW. I should have saved myself a lot of trouble and started with your recipe since you and I must have the same type of taste buds because I've never met one of your recipes that I don't like.

My search for the perfect chicken soup is over.

This was wonderful!! I chopped the celery, carrots & onions very, very small because my dh doesn't like them. He said he really enjoyed it. He could see they were in there, but couldn't taste them (although I believe they did lend a lot of flavor to the soup, even if he couldn't identify them individually). I even shared with a sick friend. This is going to be my go-to chicken noodle soup recipe & I plan to use it again & again. Thanks so much for sharing!

Excellent!!!! skip the butter and use yolkless noodles and it is a lowfat, low calorie meal in a bowl...thanks for sharing! We have 12 single servings frozen. I love soup for lunch and this is the ticket!

Yumo! I used some homemade broth and some canned since I doubled recipe. Added fresh green beans too. Added most of whole chicken I deboned. Flavor is awesome! I used a smidget of thyme since everyone said it was too much but followed the recipe for the most part. Added crushed garlic with veggies at beginning. I feel like I can fight any cold with this soup! You have to make this!

My husband had surgery yesterday and requested some chicken soup when we returned home. I found this quick recipe and he really loved it! I used 3 cans of chicken broth and one can of water to lessen the salt content and it worked really well. Thanks again, Inez for another great recipe.
