Uncle Bill's Chicken Soup

Uncle Bill's Chicken Soup created by Rootsman

This chicken soup recipe is particularily good especially when you have a cold. Substitute and use turkey if it is available.

Ready In:



  • In a large heavy bottom cooking pot, heat olive oil and butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions, leeks, carrots celery and garlic and cook, stirring for about 3 minutes or until vegetables are slightly softened but not browned.
  • Add chicken broth, water, bay leaf, thyme and rosemary.
  • Bring to boil.
  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces and add to soup along with the diced mushrooms.
  • Add noodles and bring soup to boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until noodles are tender and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove bay leaf and discard.
  • Stir in parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Serve soup hot.
  • Refrigerate any unused portions.
  • NOTE: Homemade Chicken or Turkey Stock is so much better than purchased broth.

    A very tasty and easy soup. The only change was using homemade chicken stock instead of canned. UPDATE: This has become a #1 soup favorite. Everyone who eats it comments how good it tastes. Old-fashioned flavor and comfort at its best.

    Like the man said this soup goes great with a cold. I made mine with wheat spaghetti noodles and an all natural broth. I did have to add an additional 3/4 cup of water and 16 oz of both as the mixture was very thick. I omitted the leeks and it was still quite flavorfull. Very easy too!

    Excellent. I made with all homemade stock. Very flavorful. My biggest mistake was making it about 20 minutes too early, so the pasta got a little overcooked sitting in hot liquid. Will make again soon & just do it last minute. Thanks Bill.

    Wonderful flavor blends that are really accented nicely due to the tymme and rosemary. I used home made canned turkey. (1 pint). I did omit the mushroom and leek. A nice comfort food for this time of year where there's still a little nip in the air. Made for Spice of the Month in the French Forum - rosemary~
