The Culinary Corner: Quick Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe | Positively Smitten

By Lyndsey Fought

Better than canned and almost as easy. Good to have in your back pocket when you or a friend get sick. Serve with simple crusty bread and snuggle up!

Quick Chicken Noodle Soup


  • 2-3 cups store-bought rotisserie chicken, shredded or diced (use what you like, light, dark or a mix)
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ounces thick cut noodles (like Reames homestyle frozen egg noodles)


  1. Over medium heat, sauté carrots and celery with butter. Allow vegetables to get soft (about 5-8 minutes), add garlic and allow to sauté until the garlic is almost translucent and fragrant.
  2. Add spices and salt and pepper to taste, add chicken, and broth.
  3. Prepare noodles separately, drain, then add to broth.
  4. Allow flavors to come together at very low heat for approximately 20 minutes.
  5. Serve with crusty bread.

About Lyndsey:

I have too many interests and I get easily distracted, so I haven’t completed a single thing in my life. Yay, hyperboles! I have been to culinary school and I like baking cupcakes. I write the beginnings of too many novels. I am driven by ambition and delayed by perfectionism.

I would like to travel the world, learn from others, write some best sellers, and have a restaurant or bakery someday. I am a Slytherin. I like the tenth Doctor best (followed by ninth). I am too obsessed with Downton Abbey and the whole etiquette of that era. I never forget to be awesome!


  1. That sounds good. I love a good soup!
