Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup


Gigi’s Simple Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Do I have a fabulous soup for you today.  I got this recipe from Chad’s mom Gigi (Munchkin nicknamed her Gigi for Grandma, easier to say and so sweet).  This is the Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup that my husband grew up on.  It is the soup he had every time he was sick and this soup kicked every cold he ever had.  There is just something about a chicken noodle soup made with love.

Well I enjoyed this soup many times when Gigi made it, and I naturally assumed that the flavorful soup cooked all day long to taste so good.  Much to my surprise all this chicken goodness was achieved with 5 ingredients and in 40 minutes!  You heard me right, 5 ingredients (including the water) and 40 minutes.

Thank you Gigi for sharing this amazing recipe!

Enjoy, it really is awesome!!!

Dinner’s Ready!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Course Soup
Cuisine American
Method Stovetop
Servings 10 cups


  • 8 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons chicken bouillon, granules
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 ounces broad egg noodles, (1/2 standard sized bag)


  • In a 4 quart pot over medium heat combine water and bouillon, stir to combine.
  • Add diced uncooked chicken and black pepper.
  • Cook for 30 minutes (chicken should be white and cooked). At the end of this time you will see a flavor layer at the top of the water, you will be tempted to skim it off… I caution you to leave it there, as the soup continues to cook in this final stage it will make your incredible chicken broth.
  • Add egg noodles and stir. Turn heat to high, boil for 10 minutes. Serve!

  1. Now all I can think about is having some warm, savory, chicken noodle soup with crunchy little bits of carrot and celery – yum! This looks amazing and easy. Thanks – Tricia

  2. So simple. I love chicken soup. Great for the cold. Yours looks so delicious- will try out this recipe. Thanks for posting it, what about adding noodles? When I go to Chinese restaurants, I love this chicken, sweet corn soup. I order it all the time. Adding sweet corn and egg whites would be a good idea, spring onion for the topping.

  3. I like all of the noodles in this soup and I love the big egg noodles in a chicken noodle soup because they really soak up the broth.

  4. Thank you for this! You certainly know what I like! I'm into pasta, so I made my own noodles. They turned out kinda thick, but delicious. I'll have to try again! Oh darn!

  5. And…my mother is called GG, because she's the Great-Grandma. I'm the great-grandma of 6, so I am GG2. (My grandkids call me Grannie)

  6. 5 stars
    This chicken noodle soup is simple, but effective! I love all of the flavors in it, it’s not bland like other chicken noodle soups.
