Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup

Absolutely my favorite chicken soup recipe, ever.


2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup diced or thinly sliced carrots
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups diced leftover roasted chicken
1 cup evaporated milk
4 ounces (2 cups) uncooked wide egg noodles
fresh thyme (optional)


Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-heat. Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic clove; sauté 5 minutes. Sprinkle flour, oregano, thyme and poultry seasoning over vegetables, and cook 1 minute. Stir in broth and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, partially covered, for 25 minutes. Add roasted chicken, milk and noodles, and cook 10 minutes or until noodles are tender. Garnish with fresh thyme, if desired.

    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!

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

      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!

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

    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
