There's nothing more comforting than a bowl of fresh chicken noodle soup -- a sprinkling of dill and parsley, just before serving, adds a touch of brightness.

Servings Yield




You can substitute 2 forty-eight-ounce cans of low-sodium chicken stock for the 3 quarts Chicken Stock.

Cook's Notes

In addition to broad egg noodles, you can make this heavenly soup with angel-hair pasta broken into short lengths or other shapes, such as alphabet pasta or pastina, or add cooked grains like rice.

      Many soups use the holy trinity, celery, onions and carrots.

      Amen! I am so sick of most of the recipes that use garlic. I know you can leave it out but it is so nice to see one without. Japanese dishes should never use it either.

    The chicken stock was time consuming, but so worth it. I did add some onion and celery along with the carrots. Great flavor!

    I used *gasp* canned stock because I was making this soup to use leftover roast chicken. I added some scallions and celery and it is so delish I may eat the whole pot! Yum!

    Here is a link to another Martha Chicken stock recipe that's for real! I also like adding mushrooms (along with the obvious celery and onion) and sometimes some diced sweet potato chunks.

    why not just give an actual chicken soup recipe? stock makes no sense, when you can just make the soup in one shot, and freeze the rest. this would not be helpful for me...and yes.. its missing all the great veggies that makes chicken soup the "Jewish penicillin" ...

    What's chicken soup w/o LOTS of garlic, carrots (yes, onions and celery too)! Try adding fresh tomatoes too for a delicious twist; and while you're at it, potatoes are nice too. Go for it!
