The fastest and easiest chicken noodle soup

We just had our first snow here in Alaska so I was in the mood for a nice pot of comforting and warm soup. This is the EASIEST chicken noodle soup and is ready in about 20 minutes! I like to use a can of chicken breast from Sam’s club to save on time and it tastes really good in the soup.

the-fastest-and-easiest-homemade-chicken-noodle-soupI usually use whatever type of small noodle I have on hand, but I really like whole grain macaroni. Egg noodles are perfect too or even small shells. I like the whole grain noodles because they seem to hold together better for leftovers. You don’t have mushy noodles when you reheat it. They also add a little more fiber and it’s usually what I have on hand at home, but you are welcome to use whatever you have.


This soup is so comforting and delicious. Perfect for someone sick with a cold or just because it’s cold outside. I hope you enjoy!

  • I love something super quick and easy. Thanks for sharing this recipe.ReplyCancel

  • I always crave chicken soup in the winter (especially when I’m sick), but the canned stuff never really does the trick for me. I can’t believe how quickly this version comes together! I’ll have to give this a try sometime soon.ReplyCancel

  • I saw the words, “fastest” and “easiest” and I HAD to click on your post. I kinda, well, suck when it comes to cooking. On top of that, I don’t have much patience! Whomp, whomp.

    However! Your recipe is PERFECT for me. This soup hardly takes any time at all. It’s definitely something I could manage:-)

    Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. I’ll be pinning this bad boy for sure!

  • 10 STARS! 
    This was excellent. Given the COVID shelter in place restrictions, I used a couple of substitutions:
    First I used two cans of Kirkland canned chicken breast. After about 5 minutes from presenting him his bowl, my husband (a snobby foodie) asked where I got the chicken and almost fell out of his chair when I told him. Then my next challenge was the parsley and bay leaf I didn’t have any. So I used Goya Sazonador Total plus some salt and pepper.  For the broth I used better than bullion to make the 8 cups.
    I did the whole thing in the 8qt Instant Pot. I sauteed the veggies first, added the broth, the canned chicken, the spices then pressure cooked 7 minutes with a 10 minute natural release. Then, I put the pot back on saute for about 15 minutes after adding the egg noodles. 
    Will totally make this again and again and again and again… Thank you lotz!ReplyCancel
