    Just tried this tonight and I think it really is the best chicken noodle soup I’ve had. It has great flavor. My daugher and I both liked the creamy broth. Thanks for a keeper recipe.

    This recipe is one of the best tasting that I have made. It was fairly easy to make.My husband asked right after the first bite if it was a new recipe, then commented on how good it is. Thank you for sharing!

    Damn delicious! I made this for my husband who loves chicken noodle soup in the can. I can’t eat that plus the sodium content is very high. His recent blood test showed an elevated blood pressure so I told him I’ll find a chicken noodle soup recipe that’s healthier than the canned one. Not only did he liked it but I did as well! Thank you for all your damn delicious recipes.

    This soup had an unexpected affect on me. I have never made a chicken noodle soup with so much flour and not made it into a chowder. The evaporated milk was a surprise. Another surprise? With the help of a little bit of rosemary because I had it and it was fresh, it tasted almost EXACTLY like a dish my grandmother used to make (she’s been gone 4 years), only in soup form. She used to make this creamy white chicken over egg noodles. I flashed back and was brought to happy tears because I didn’t expect it. The recipes are very different. Anyway, thank you for the happy reminiscing!

      What a lovely story- thank you for sharing that!

    do we have to use evaporated milk, or can we leave it out?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      The evaporated milk is sort of what makes this recipe special. It gives it a slight creaminess that other chicken noodle soups do not have.

    Sounds so good and easy to prepare. Do I have to use evaporated milk or can I use regular/skim/or 2%milk? Thanks for sharing your recipes with the public!

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      I haven’t tried using regular milk… but it might be okay. Evaporated milk will make it slightly creamy.

  • Lisa wrote:

    Sounds delicious! Do you used regular evaporated or non-fat…or does it matter?

    This is the best chicken noodle soup I have had. I already made a batch last week but ate the rest of it today so went to the store and I am making another batch now. I did and extra everything though and a couple spices that I thought would be good in it. DELICIOUS
