Recipe by Chef John
"This soul-warming soup is deliciously simple -- just chicken and noodles. What makes it so good is the homemade roasted chicken stock."

I love how simple this recipe is. This is just plain comfort food. It all comes together so quickly too. I weighed the 4 oz of egg noodles and measured them - it was about 2 cups in my large glass pyrex measuring cup. Remember your soup will only be as good as your broth / stock. Enjoy!
We (my family and I) were really NOT impressed. I followed the recipe exactly but it wasn't really impressive
Excellent! I used Chef John's roasted chicken stock recipe and the schmalz (chicken fat) from the roasted chicken for making this soup. Next time I might try adding some frozen peas at the same time that the chicken is added.
Awesome!!! We love this soup, all I had was 2 quarts of regular chicken broth, but I went back to the store and bought one more quart of chicken stock because we like the extra liquid in our soup, the stock makes the difference. Perfect for a day you don't want to do alot of cooking. Thx
I always save my rotisserie ckn carcasses after I trim off the leftover meat @ freeze that in a separate pkg with the carcass. Broth is so much better when made with rotesserie ckn. Pretty much followed the recipe & added trimmings at the end. Great way to use up rotisserie ckn & get a bigger bang for your buck. Your only expense is the price of the veggies & if you're like me you have them in the fridge anyways. A pot of soup for no extra cost! If I'm not going to serve right away I cook the noodles separate. If they're left in overnite they tend to swell & absorb the broth. So I just toss them in when I'm reheating the soup.
I love it when cooks change the recipe so much and then complain/say it is great - not! That being said, this was superb totally as is. I made it for my kids and they slurped it up and were sad when it was gone. A total comfort food. I have never made broth from scratch, usually use bouillon to enhance my stock, but this was the first time I didn't need to and I felt like a real chef!
My hubby is under the weather this weekend so i made this soup for him. I followed the receipe as posted but added some LOVE and it was PERFECT!!!!! I have never been a fan of chicken noodle soup because of the bland taste, but this one is hands down the best i have ever had. It was also easy to make which is always good during this busy time of year. Thanks Chef John!
Wouldn't change a thing,, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
