CREAMY CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP


 CREAMY CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP



This creamy chicken noodle soup is quick and easy to make! It's filled with tender grated chicken, plump noodles, and healthy veggies.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1.5 pounds chicken breasts
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 2 sticks celery chopped finely
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 generous cups uncooked egg noodles
  • 2 medium carrots peeled & chopped finely
  •  

Instructions:

  1. Saute the the celery, carrots, and onion with the butter & oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in the flour and cook for about a minute.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth and stir until the flour has dissolved. Add in the chicken, Italian seasoning, and cream. Increase the heat to high and bring the soup to a slight boil. Cover the pot with the lid slightly ajar.
  5. Reduce the heat so it's simmering gently. Let it cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Stir in the noodles and cover the pot again (lid slightly ajar) for a further 8-10 minutes. I like to stir it halfway just to ensure the noodles aren't sticking.
  7. Take the chicken out of the pot and cut it up, then add it back in again and season the soup with salt & pepper to taste, and stir in the fresh parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy your soup!
