Easy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe Tip

I have tried different types of noodles, and my favorite type to use is kluski. They may be a mid-western thing, because my cousin, who lives in Texas, can’t get them. In my humble opinion, they are as close to homemade as you can get out of a bag. The brand doesn’t matter…I’ve used Inn Maid, Mrs. Weiss’, and also local Amish-made noodles. They are all delicious!

  • 2 boxes chicken broth 32 oz.
  • 2 cans Campbell's chicken broth (optional)
  • 1 deli rotisserie chicken
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup each carrots and celery (chopped)
  • 16 oz. bag egg noodles
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lawry's seasoned salt


  • In a large soup pot melt the butter.
  • Add carrots and celery.
  • Saute about 5 min.
  • Add all the chicken broth, both boxes and cans.
  • Pick the meat off the rotisserie chicken and add to broth.
  • Make sure to pour any juice in the bottom of the chicken bag into the broth.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add almost the whole bag of noodles leaving a handful in the bag.
  • Add seasoned salt.
  • Simmer about 30 min.


I always pick up an extra box of chicken broth. If the soup gets too thick, just add more broth.

This is one of those soup recipes that just gets better after it sits in the refrigerator for a few days. It can be made ahead, and freezes very well. If you are a crockpot user, all you have to do is saute the carrots and celery on the stove top, then transfer them to a crockpot. Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook it on low for a few hours. You will know when it’s done because the noodles will be cooked.

What makes this chicken noodle soup recipe so easy is using a rotisserie chicken. If you prefer not to use one, pieces of chicken can be baked or boiled, and then shredded. The two cans of Campbell’s broth add a little extra flavor because it’s thicker than normal chicken broth. If you can’t find it, or prefer not to use it, just use extra of the boxed broth.

    This recipe is so easy and soo good. I followed as directed and would probably use a little less pasta or a little more broth. I’ve liked all your recipes that I have tried.

      Hi Kim…yes, sometimes the noodles have a mind of their own! Thank you very much for the rating…I truly appreciate it!

  2. This recipe is so close to a recipe shared by a friend after making my family chicken soup. He added Lawry’s garlic salt and it really makes the soup delicious!! Give this a try the next time you make your delicious looking soup.

    I made this tonight, even though summer isn’t officially over, and it was delicious! I love to cook but sometimes just want something simple. We had it with pretzel rolls and called it dinner! There is a lot left over so I’ll freeze some and hope the noodles don’t soak up all the broth! Thanks for a good recipe!

  8. Anne, this is the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever made! It was so delicious. I was fortunate to find the noodles you recommended and that was one huge difference. It just all came together wonderfully. What I like about this recipe is that if I were not feeling well, it would be no trouble to make and I know it would make you feel much better to have it to nurse yourself back to health. This is definitely a keeper for me!

  18. I made this for dinner tonight….it was DELICIOUS! I live in Green Bay, WI, it’s 4 degrees outside, and we have a 2 hour delay for school tomorrow…with this type of weather, it was the perfect meal. Easy and quick to make and I loved the idea of using rotisserie chicken. I go back to work tomorrow after the holiday break and we will have leftovers tomorrow night.
    Thank you for the recipe!!

  24. Kathleen G says:

    Have Turkey soup and Ham and split pea soup in the freezer. My husband made them over the holidays. Rotisserie chicken is so versatile. Love quick homemade soups and this looks warm and delicious. Happy New Year Ann! Kathleen in Az

  25. I have never heard of that brand of noodles before and don’t think I’ve ever seen them in the store either. I love recipes that get better after a few days. It think soup is always that way. Yummy!!

  26. Nancy McIntosh says:

    I am curious why you used both boxed and canned chicken broth?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      When I first started making this soup, years ago, the Campbell’s chicken broth said “Double Rich, Double Thick” on the label. I used it because I thought it might add a little extra flavor and I think it does. The label doesn’t say that anymore but I still add it anyway. :)

  27. Ellie LaJuett says:

    I love any kind of soup, I live in upstate NY soup country.This looks easy and quite tasty!

  28. Nothing hits the spot on a cold January day like homemade chicken noodle soup. This recipe sounds terrific.

  29. This sounds great for a cold snowy day. Happy New Year Ann!!

  30. I can’t wait to try this! It sounds super simple and the ingredients easy to purchase.We don’t have that brand of noodles in NC but can get something similar at Fresh Market. I am curious on why you use both boxes of broth and cans of broth. Is it a flavor profile? Thanks for sharing a quick dinner!

    1. I was curious about the two different chicken broths as well. Thanks for any info and also for all your sharing.

      1. My mom made a delicious chicken soup with carrots, celery, potatoes, chicken and also rice. Can I use this same recipe and use the rice instead of the noodles? Thank you.
