What makes this recipe easy? It uses leftover chicken or turkey or you can just pick up a rotisserie chicken from the deli. You can have this on the dinner table in about 30 minutes.

What can you add to chicken noodle soup to make it taste better?

When you start your soup with onions, carrots, celery and garlic you get a ton of flavor. It makes it taste just like old fashioned chicken noodle soup. Homemade chicken broth is wonderful addition but I usually only have store bought on hand and works just fine for this easy recipe.

What are the best herbs for chicken noodle soup?

Garlic is my must-have for chicken noodle soup and in this recipe I added a bay leaf. Thyme, rosemary and basil are also great options. Fresh or dried herbs will work well to add more flavor to your homemade chicken noodle soup.
