Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup


This is my husband’s and oldest son’s favorite chicken noodle soup. Personally, I feel that regular chicken noodle and creamy chicken noodle each have a place in the recipe world. My husband and son would say that this creamy version is the only option in their book.  I got this recipe from a neighbor years ago and have changed it slightly. She makes this recipe with homemade noodles. I haven’t wanted to attempt that yet. It takes enough time to made this soup without making you own noodles.

My family also loves lots of noodles in this soup. So if you don’t like a mega amounts of noodles in your soup, then feel free to use less. I also prefer to tear my chicken into big chucks instead of dicing it up. I think it give it more of a homemade look  that way.

This is what the soup looks like before the cream sauce is added.

  • Just made this soup. I decided to used a rotisserie chicken from the market, which cut the prep time at least in half. I also used organic carrots (more flavorful). This was by far THE BEST chicken soup i have ever had. It is a cross between chicken &
    dumplings and chicken noodle soup. Perfection!

  • I will definitely have to try this recipe, I love soups….and I think chicken is my favorate. A great substiture for the cream sause if you are in a hurry is to add a carton of sour cream after the soup is finished. just allow to simmer for an extyra 10 minutes or so. It makes a very rich, creamy chicken noodle soup.

  • i am going to try this recipe tonight…super excited…
