Trimble's Chicken Noodle Soup, Homemade Rolls, Broccoli, Peas


This chicken noodle soup recipe comes from LMPD reader Trimble. You can find it posted on her blog, Dinner Time Ideas. I was intrigued by how thick the soup looks in her picture; I can't wait to try it out!

I will be serving this soup with Grandma's homemade rolls, steamed broccoli, and microwaved frozen peas.


Here is Trimble's post, copied from her blog:

2 T butter
1 c sliced celery
1 c chopped carrot
1/2 t onion powder (or 1/2 cup chopped onion if you prefer)
1 small diced potato
1 teaspoon thyme (if you don't have this go to the store, do not leave this out)
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning (again, go to the store)
4 cans (14 oz) chicken broth
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 lb or 1 1/2 c noodles (penne are my favorite)
2 c cooked chicken, shredded or diced
1/2-3/4 c water

First I like to cook my chicken in a slow cooker on high for 4-6 hours. Put two small chicken breasts in, fill the slow cooker about 1/3 full with water and sprinkle in 1 1/2 teaspoons of onion salt. After the chicken is done, either shred or dice and set aside. On high heat, melt butter in a large pot and saute celery, carrot and onion powder for two minutes. Add potato, thyme, poultry seasoning, chicken broth and bouillon. Bring all to a boil. Add the noodles and chicken and simmer on low for 20 minutes. Depending on how thick you want this to be, add up to 3/4 c water. It's pretty thick if you don't add any extra water due to the noodles.

*This soup was delicious! I loved the strong flavor and thick texture. I threw my peas into the soup, just for more veggies. Thanks for a yummy chicken noodle recipe!

Cooking the chicken ahead of time, and even making extra and freezing, works great for meals like this, and saves time later! LOVE this blog, way to go!

I am always happy when I can cook a bunch of chicken ahead of time to use in multiple meals!

I'll have to explore the sits girls site. Thanks for the tip!
