Classic Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

chickennoodlesoup pinit

Our classic creamy chicken soup recipe is excellent on cold and rainy days. It is one of my winter soup go to recipes by far and is one of the nicest comfort foods I know of. I make it with a combination of chicken, thyme, salt, pepper, onions, carrots, celery, cream, and milk. In light of this, it stands out as simple, elegant, and classic. One of the greatest things is, it’s a 30 minute recipe. Which makes it the perfect fast soup recipe.

  1. Hi David!,
    Well today’s today I’m going to make your creamy chicken noodle soup! As I was getting the vegetables together I noticed that you didn’t mention onions in your video and in the written the written instructions I don’t see onions listed – It’s not a big deal but a beginner cook might get confused confused I just thought I would let you know. Thanks so much for this recipe I’m going to make it and I’ll let you know what our taste buds said LOL I’m guessing maybe about ½ cup chopped onions?
    Have a lovely day!!
