Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

This is my husband’s and oldest son’s favorite chicken noodle soup. Personally, I feel that regular chicken noodle soup and creamy chicken noodle soup each have a place in the recipe world. My husband and son would say that this creamy version is the only option in their book.

I got this recipe from a neighbor years ago and have changed it slightly. She makes this recipe with homemade noodles. I haven’t wanted to attempt that yet. It takes enough time to make this soup without making your own noodles.

My family also loves lots of noodles in this soup. So, if you don’t like a mega amount of noodles in your soup, feel free to use less. I also prefer to tear my chicken into big chunks instead of dicing it up. I think it gives it more of a homemade look that way.

  4. Just made this soup. I decided to used a rotisserie chicken from the market, which cut the prep time at least in half. I also used organic carrots (more flavorful). This was by far THE BEST chicken soup i have ever had. It is a cross between chicken &
    dumplings and chicken noodle soup. Perfection!
