My favorite thing on a cold day or when I'm feeling under the weather is a nice hot bowl of soup like this homemade chicken noodle soup. It instantly warms me up straight to the core and makes me feel cozy. 

In a pinch, this soup can be made without chicken by adding your favorite pasta noodles to seasoned chicken broth and it is still just as satisfying.

I love easy soup recipes and this one is so easy, it's ready in less than 20 minutes. 

Ingredients needed for easy chicken noodle soup

  • Small onion:  small onion, chopped. You can use a wooden cutting board for this.
  • Garlic: you only need 1 clove and make sure it is minced. No fresh garlic? You can use dried minced garlic you can find in the spice aisle in the grocery stores or on Amazon.
  • Celery: 1 stalk, chopped. If you don't like celery, you can leave this out altogether, or save it for your celery juice!
  • Olive oil: I like to cook most of my dishes in olive oil, but if you prefer vegetable or canola oil, that is ok too!
  • Chicken Broth: For this recipe,  I used College Inn, but you can use your favorite brand, or homemade stock if you have some.
  • Chicken Boullion: This is a staple in every pantry. If you don't have the cubes, try Better Than Bullion as is adds lots of flavor to soups and recipes. 
  • Frozen mixed vegetables: Adding vegetables to this chicken noodle soup is a great way to get added nutrients in your meal.
  • Water: Adding water creates more broth to enjoy!
  • Wide egg noodles: Egg noodles are the perfect pasta to use because they expand so much so you only need a little bit. Start with 2 handfuls, which should be about 2 cups. Add more if you like lots of noodles
