This rich-tasting but better-for-you creamy chicken soup has a delicious chicken pot pie feel to it. We call for rotisserie chicken to streamline your prep time--look for a nice big one with lots of breast meat on it. Pair this comforting and easy soup recipe with a green salad, or, if you're really hungry, a grilled cheese sandwich.

I've made lots of cream soups and various iterations of chicken noodle soup but never a creamy noodle soup! This recipe was easy to make with ingredients, save for the ww egg noodles, that I had on hand. I used 2% milk; I almost used evaporated skim as I typically do in cream soups. The best part: it was very filling (important to me!) and delicious. My family wasn't suspicious that the noodles were whole wheat like they are with elbow pasta! I was happy I tried this recipe at the start of soup season; I'll certainly be making it again this winter. Thank you Eating Well! Read More

I loved this as did my family. I added a few extra spices - garlic rosemary oregano sage and poultry seasoning. I used 1 1/2 c of evaporated milk 1/2 c of whole milk and used the recipe s 4 c of broth but it wasn t as soupy as we d like. Next time I will increase the broth I think. So perfect with a loaf of sourdough. Great and easy recipe. Read More

I have made this at least 10 times this winter and spring. It's wonderful. I have started adding another 2 cups of brother and another 1/2 c of milk to it, so that there is more liquid in the soup. I also cut the noodles (not whole wheat egg noodles, as I couldn't find them anywhere) to 3 c. This soup is absolutely wonderful and I have recommended it to many friends. Read More

Finally found the best chicken noodle soup recipe! Roasted my own chicken (Ina Garten!) and made stock from the carcass and veggies then made the soup as written and it was delicious! Easy to make with store bought as well. The whole wheat egg noodles were great! Would never know they were whole wheat. Thank you! Read More

This so is a keeper! The only adjustments I made were to add copies chopped parsley and thyme. I used No Yolks whole grain noodles which I didn't think I'd like - they were delicious! Will definitely add to my soup rotation. Read More
