Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

We love to brine and smoke a chicken on the weekends. Last weekend we made a smoked chicken with mustard bbq sauce and it was phenomenal!

Tips for the Best Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup:

  • If you have cooked a whole chicken, keep the carcass to make stock or broth. You will be surprised how delicious it is and it’s a great way to trim your grocery budget!
  • If you don’t have a pasta roller, you can roll the pasta with a rolling pin, it’s just a little more time consuming. You can always use store bought Kluski noodles but homemade are seriously delicious!
  • Cooking the vegetables before adding them to the broth will give your soup another layer of flavor that you don’t want to miss out on.

This makes a hearty and delicious soup with the homemade noodles. Add some homemade buttermilk biscuits and you will have a filling, family- friendly meal. 

Our broth was so delicious from the smoked chicken that we ended up not adding any extra spices to this soup. Spice up your soup with Italian seasonings or a bay leaf if desired.

  1. You know, I’ve never made chicken and noodle soup! I don’t know why! There is nothing not comforting and appealing about this. Thanks! Perfect weather still for this, too!

  2. hi there. you are missing the amount of eggs in your recipe for the noodles. Eggs are shown in the pictures but no number for eggs to make the noodles. Please update.

    1. Hi Janet,
      I’m having a little trouble getting it updated but will fix it as soon as possible. It’s 3 eggs. Thanks for letting me know it was missing.
