Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup is a classic comfort food just right for cold winter days

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and that you were able to enjoy it with loved ones. I sure enjoyed the relaxation and free time. After several days of sleeping in, the alarm going off yesterday morning at 5:55 was not the greatest feeling in the world. If you noticed, due to the celebrations this week, the blog took a short break this week – hope you didn’t miss me too much ;)

Today, I’m sharing with you a classic chicken noodle soup recipe. This recipe is actually Jason’s own creations. I felt it was appropriate to share this now because I know there are several people who are sick and friend’s children who are sick, etc. It’s basically going around and what better than to have a piping hot pot of this on the stove? It’s so comforting and it really does temporarily soothe whatever ailments you may have – at least for me it did.

I ended up getting really sick sometime in July or August. One of those. I had a horrible sore throat and felt like complete crud. The term getting run over by a truck suited me perfectly. As soon as we got home from work, Jason told me to take a load off and go take a nap. I woke up a couple hours later to the most amazing smell coming from the kitchen. He had cooked up a large pot of homemade chicken soup. Now, this might sound bias, but I swear it’s not, however, after my first initial sip, I deemed it the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever had. Even through my stuffy nose, I was able to taste it. It was so on point. Campbell’s chicken noodle soup better watch out – Wampler’s chicken noodle soup is comin’ for ya ;)

Every time I get sick, Jason makes this for me. It’s really comforting and the fact that it’s made with love by someone you love just really says it all. Hope you all can get warm with this soup this winter, sick or not!

My husband requested homemade chicken noodle soup for his birthday dinner (I made it for him once years ago and he said it was his favorite meal...real comfort food). I followed your recipe and it's simmering as I type. My daughter (5) walked into the kitchen and said it smells delicious. Can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing!

This soup is awesome! I'm making it as we speak to take to my husband who is a Marine spending some time out in "the field" before his upcoming deployment to Afghanistan! Since it's cold and raining I'm sure he and his Marines will enjoy it! Thank goodness it's easy to double the recipe! Thank you so much for posting it!

I made this tonight for my family and it was amazing! But I tweeked it a bit because I was in a bit of a rush...I used 3 TBSP of butter because I added a few more of each vegetables, I used a package of baby carrots that I chopped up because I didn't have time to peel the others, and I used 3 large cans of Swansons chicken because my kids couldn't wait for me to cook raw. They are all sick with the flu again I believe so I had to improvise the fast way. I cooked it all the same but when it came to adding the chicken I added all the rest ingredients at once and simmered for 10 mins then added the noodles and simmered till they were done which was another 12-13 mins! Excellent flavor! My kids loved this! Even with the flu they still ate it! Thanks for adding this recipe on here!!! :)
