Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup


Sautéed chicken and garlic impart a richness to this homemade chicken soup recipe. Feel free to add other vegetables and herbs to suit your taste! I like to serve this with a green salad and warm rolls.

  • 4 chicken breast tenderloins, cut into bite-size pieces

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped

  • 2 small carrots, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth

  • 2 cups medium egg noodles


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken in hot oil until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  3. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the saucepan. Sauté celery, carrots, and garlic in hot oil over medium heat until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with pepper.

  4. Pour chicken broth into the saucepan and deglaze by scraping up the bits of chicken and vegetables from the bottom of the hot pan. Bring to a boil. Add egg noodles, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until noodles are tender yet firm to the bite, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Ladle soup into bowls and lay chicken on top.
