Variations for Our Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

  • Stir some leafy greens in at the end, like spinach or kale, for added fiber.
  • Replace the egg noodles for any shaped pasta you have on hand. If you only have long strand pasta, then just break them up into ‘spoonable’ pieces.
  • Add more vegetables like zucchini or broccoli florets!
  • Use a homemade chicken stock if you have it on hand or prefer it!

Importance of the Quality of Stock

Since our recipe uses a store bought stock, to save on time, it’s really important that the stock is a high quality stock with great flavor. It serves as the backbone of the overall soup!

As we mentioned above, you can definitely use a homemade stock if that’s your preference! It’s definitely the route we take if we happen to have some in the fridge or freezer.

Make Ahead Instructions for Our Chicken Noodle Soup

When chicken noodle soup sits, the noodles tend to soak up all the liquid. To prevent all the stock from being soaked up by the noodles (and the noodles in turn getting soggy) we recommend prepping and storing the soup differently from if you were to make and serve it fresh.

Make Ahead

To make our soup ahead of time, prep the soup as the instructions are written, but omit the noodles. Then in a separate pot, boil the noodles in some water until al dente. Drain and gently rinse to cool. Store the soup in an airtight container and the noodles in a separate airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

When ready to reheat, pour the soup into a pot and simmer over medium-high heat. Once soup is simmering, pour the noodles in and stir. Simmer for a few more minutes until heated through. Re-season with salt and pepper as needed.
