"I love this soup. Very rich and creamy. I serve it with biscuits and honey. My kids even like the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. I actually like to add the chicken and vegetables first before the noodles and cook for an hour or so, then add the cream mix and noodles and simmer on the back of the stove for a couple of hours. I love having the smell of the soup cooking all day."

"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 (recipe #29006), 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!"
"Pines this is great. I shredded the meat off a bbq chicken and I would do this everytime now because it tasted so yum. I used thickened cream because I couldn't find whipping cream (might be our equivalent in Aus)and used 1 x 250g pack of egg fettucine and it was beautiful and was even better the next day. I also used a can of baby carrots and added them when I added the chicken. This is so easy to make and tastes beautiful. It really was comforting when I was sick with the flu. Thank you.."
"YUMMY soup! Our whole family loved it and it made enough so I had leftovers for lunch the next day! Just thought I'd pass this along that 13 cups of broth is equal to 2 of the large 49.5oz cans of broth that you can get at Sam's or Costco. Thanks for the great recipe!!"
" What a comfort this soup is when the wind is chilling you to the bone. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!"
"We enjoyed this soup last night while the cold wind was blowing last night along with the 6 inches of snow we got. This soup warmed us all. I love the idea of using the cream making the broth creamy and comforting. Thanks for a keeper pines506"
"Delicious! It has a wonderful *down home* taste...like Grandma used to make! Thanks!"
