Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Stephanie Gallagher
This is my shortcut chicken noodle soup recipe (click for larger image) when I want to make homemade soup the easy way.

The secret is using pre-cooked chicken. The more flavorful the chicken, the better the soup will be. Try this chicken soup with a store-bought rotisserie chicken or leftover lemon chicken.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 quarts low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. sage
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1-1/2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 6 oz. thin dried spaghetti broken into thirds


  1. Heat oil in a large soup pot or dutch oven over medium heat.

  2. Add diced onion, celery and carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, 3-5 minutes.

  3. Add chicken broth, pepper, salt, parsley, sage and thyme.

  4. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low. Let soup simmer 5 minutes.

  5. Add chicken and broken spaghetti pieces. Cook 10 minutes.

  6. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
Serve warm.
