This is an excellent chicken noodle soup recipe. I did not add the celery (personal taste) and I used evaporated milk instead of whipping cream as some others suggested. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Served with crusty French bread.
This is the best Chicken Noodle soup ever! I have been told it is magic! :-) I like to add potatoes and let it simmer for awhile on the stove. Thanks so much for posting this recipe I have used it numerous times and have passed it along to many! :-)
Everyone in the family loves this soup. I added to chopped up potatoes but that was it. Wonderful with some warm italian bread. This will be the soup I'll be making this winter!
This is my new favorite chicken noodle soup (replacing another one from this site). I followed your instructions almost completely...just a few adjustments. As you mentioned, I chopped the veggies and allowed them to simmer in the 12 cups of broth and seasonings for an hour until they were tender (can't stand crunchy veggies in my soup). I added a small chopped onion to the mix as well. Used 3 tsp of poultry seasoning. After the veggies were simmerering, I then made the broth, butter, cream mixture and took someone elses advice and used fat free evaporated milk. I really wanted to use the cream, but I am glad I didn't (I know it would be richer), but it was so wonderful with the evap. milk anyway. When the veggies were done, I added the chicken and noodles and simmered another 30 minutes or so. I used costco's rotiserrie chicken and they are already so full of flavor- the best and I used about 3 cups shredded. The house did smell fabulous and the soup tasted great even before adding the cream mixture. So, if you wanted to reduce the fat, you could take that out and be very satisfied without it. However, I do think that is what made it very special. It gave the soup a shimmery look and a slightly thicker, richer taste...worth the extra calories. Thank you.
Made this tonight for dinner and it was great! Really comforting on a chilly day! Thanks!
This is an awesome soup! The whipping cream in it puts it over the top! I generally add a bit of celery salt, some garlic and onion powder, but other than that, follow the recipe. Gets rave reviews from everyone I serve it too. I generally have biscuits and honey butter to go along side try Southern Buttermilk Biscuits 26110. Thanks for a great recipe!
This soup is FANTASTIC. My entire family loved it, which is an amazing feat. I substituted evaporated fat free milk for the whipping cream, but other than that I stuck true to the recipe and many new folks have come to this website because of this recipe alone. Thanks so much for sharing!
This soup is excellent! I made a pot for our family, and took an extra pot to a friend with sick children. She said the children begged for the soup, even for breakfast! Very rich, flavorful, and easy to prepare. I'm going to make another pot right now!
So very, very good! I took some small liberties with it to suit our taste, but it's the sort of recipe that lends itself to that beautifully. I made fresh broth (definitely worthwhile for this!) and ended up with only 11 cups. Despite being a little short on the liquid, I still had to add 4 very generous cups of chicken before it seemed just right. I also sauteed the vegetables first for a little more flavor. The syrup/whipping cream thing was something I'd never heard of before, but it surely made this soup special. I made Kevin Young's homemade noodles (Chicken Noodle Soup), and that just took it over the top! Thanks so much for sharing your terrific recipe, pines. My family raved.
I have made this soup at least 5 times now and I am always impressed with the outcome. I add a bit more poultry seasoning (2X as much) just because I like the flavor. This is a very simple recipe that doesn't require much attention. Loved it!
