This cozy and comforting chicken noodle soup is on the table in just 30 minutes!


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup peeled and sliced carrots (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion (1 small onion)
  • 1 cup sliced celery (about 2 ribs of celery)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 7 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups shredded or cubed fully cooked chicken
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 1/2 cups wide egg noodles (approximately 5 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Melt butter in a 6 quart dutch oven or large soup pot over medium high heat.  Add carrots, onion and celery.  Cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  2. Add chicken broth, water, cream of chicken soup, dill, rosemary, salt, pepper, cooked chicken and bay leaves.  Stir to combine.
  3. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil.  Add noodles and stir to combine.  Reduce heat as necessary to maintain a gentle boil (medium high to medium).  Boil gently for 8 minutes (stirring occasionally), or until noodles and vegetables are tender.
