Chicken noodle soup becomes chicken doodle soup! Yes, the healthy red broth, not usually seen in chicken soup, will make you cocaka doodle!

Noodles Soup

Chicken doodle soup. Yes, it’s my whimsical version of noodles soup but with a bohemian flair! I love the rich tomatoeee broth that comes with every bite. Reminiscent of a ‘vegetable’ soup, there’s no mistaking that you’re eating chicken soup.

Chicken Soup Base

What makes the best chicken soup is the chicken soup base. Yes, like a well-built house, you have to have a strong foundation, and that’s what you have with this recipe!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Now, what might the flair be in this homemade chicken noodle soup recipe? It’s something subtle. It’s something simple. It’s something that helps build flavor.

It’s not only a couple of ingredients, like a package of dried Lipton’s Noodle Soup, but a ‘layering’ of ingredients rather than a ‘dumping’ of them when preparing the soup.

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup from Scratch

Homemade chicken noodle soup from scratch is eons better than opening a can of soup. If you take the time to make it from scratch, you have enough soup for several meals. And,  you’ll even have plenty for freezing. But, there’s nothing complicated. This is what I call the quick chicken soup! 

Quick Chicken Soup

Quick chicken soup with layers of flavor! Yes, we’re going to build the taste profile. So be sure to read those directions. It’s not hard, just need to follow the bouncing ball.

Now, this was so stinkin’ good that Ben and I both had two bowls for breakfast. He said it was the best I’d ever made. Asked me how to do it. I said, ‘Head to the website…everything’s there for you! I’m thinking he’ll want to impress his buddies while I’m gone by making this soup for them!

Chicken Soup with Pasta

If you want your chicken soup with pasta, simply substitute your favorite kind, bow tie pasta, elbow macaroni, whatever, for the wide egg noodles I’ve used in this recipe. Hey, you could even try a more substantial pasta like rigatoni or penne pasta. Get creative and try new things. That’s the fun of being in the kitchen. Let your free-spirited self express! xox ~ally

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups sweet onions, diced
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut in about 1” cubes
  • 1 ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. coarse ground pepper
  • ½ tsp. red chili flakes
  • 1 packaged dried chicken noodle soup
  • 2 (14.5 oz.) cans diced tomatoes
  • 3 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups celery, with leaves and sliced
  • 1 cup dry noodles, wide egg
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup flat parsley, roughly chopped


In a large cast iron pot over medium heat, put the oil. Let it get hot then add the onions. Sauté 5 minutes. Add the garlic cloves and cook another 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken cubes, salt, pepper, chili flakes and chicken noodle soup cook about 5-7 minutes tossing and blending well.

Add the tomatoes and chicken broth. Blend, increase heat to high. Cover and bring to boil for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium or medium low. You want a simmering boil. Cover and cook 20 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium low and add celery, noodles, and basil. Cover and cook about 30 minutes.

If not serving immediately, let the soup simmer on very low heat.

Add parsley when ready to serve.


You certainly could use boneless skinless chicken thighs in this recipe, too.
