Who doesn't want a big hot bowl of noodles with chicken! My chicken piccata soup has all the things you love about Italian chicken piccata!


  • 4 chicken thighs (1.5 to 2 lbs.), bone-in, skin on
  • 32 oz. chicken broth, divided
  • 4 ยฝ cups water, divided
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 cups wide egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup flour, all purpose
  • 1 cup parmesan reggiano, freshly grated (plus more for garnish)
  • 1/4 cup capers, drained
  • 1/3 cup Italian parsley, roughly chopped 1 lemon, juice for garnish


In a large stock pot or cast iron pot, add 3 cups of chicken broth and 3 ½ cups of water, chicken thighs, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, basil, and salt.

Turn heat to high, cover (lid askew) and let it come to a roaring boil for about 10-15 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low, cover with a lid, and cook the chicken about 60-75 minutes or until the meat is tender and can be easily pulled from the bone. Check occasionally to see if you need to add more water. as it will evaporate in the cooking process.

Using tongs, remove the meat to a dish leaving the broth in the pot. Add the egg noodles to the broth. Turn heat to low, cover and cook about 7 minutes until the noodles are getting tender. Meanwhile, remove the skin from the chicken pieces and discard. Remove the meat from the chicken and set aside.

Take the bones, put in a smaller pot, add the remaining water and chicken broth, cover with a lid, turn heat to medium and cook another 15 minutes.

Remove the bones. Shake off any meat that might easily fall off. Add the flour to the hot broth and whisk vigorously making a thickening mixture. Add to the large pot of noodles and blend.

Add the Parmesan and blend in. Finally, add the shredded chicken, capers and parsley and blend well. Cover and let the soup rest on simmer about 20 minutes.

Ready to serve with a splash of fresh lemon juice and another grating of parmesan reggiano!

  4. Your chicken soup has all the right ingredients but the cook time is way off!!! There is no way you can set it to a โ€œroaring boilโ€ for 15 minutes and then put it on simmer for 60-75 minutes and have any broth left! Did you even try this out first before putting it online?
