It’s been a very hot summer.

I mean, it’s always a boiling hot summer in Los Angeles.

Yet.

Is it weird that I’ve been home all day with this hot pot of soup?

I’m dripping sweat.

But.

I can’t stop.

With the summer veggies and cannellini beans, this is truly a bowl of hearty comfort food.

But don’t judge me too much if I’m sitting by the pool with a bowl of this soup.

  1. I made this soup today. I’m very pleased with the results. I made a large pot. Can you freeze the soup?

  2. Why is everyone saying there are no noodles?…the instructions on the noodles and the chicken are very clear haha

  3. This soup recipe was amazing! The recipe was very easy to follow. It was simple; not overly complicated. I love soup and this just made my heart warm. I was so happy with all the flavors. I will definitely do this again!!

  4. Just made the soup smells amazing I’m taking to church dinner tomorrow..it says serve immediately but I’m hoping it “tastes better the next day” type of meal lol I had no problem with the directions…thank you 

  5. How would you do this in a crockpot? Meaning how long and at what temperature?

  6. I have made many of your recips a try, and loved everyone of them.  I must give this recipe a try to.  It looks yummy!

  7. great idea and why not? I don’t like super hot (temperature hot not spicy hot) soups anyway so am more open to year-round soup, but also appreciate the vegetable swap here, so thank you for this recipe!

  8. We are in a cold snap this weekend and your soup was just the recipe to try..it was delicious and I will soon make it again..thanks for posting!

  9. Summer Chicken Noodle Soup! Dreams do come true! This looks so light and summery, I just want a huge bowl of it right now – and I’d totally be sitting by the pool with a bowl of it, I mean, it’s summer noodle soup! 

  10. Are the chicken breast cooked or raw? Are the noodles cooked separately and then added to the soup or are the raw noodles add to the soup and cooked in the big pot? Thanks in advance for your clarification.

  11. How would this soup turn out without the beans? With the corn, etc., there is probably a fair amount of starch. If you were going to drop one of these ingredients which would you pick? I think the corn is a good candidate, even though I love corn. Also, if you wanted to do this in a slow cooker, which of the steps should be modified? I know this is a lot to ask, but we kind of like chicken breasts slow-cooked whole then shredded before adding back to the soup. Thanks!

  13. Wow.  This looks marvelous… chicken soup ANY TIME

  14. When you state whisk in chicken stock…….however lastly when do you put back the chicken? Did you forget to add it to directions?

  15. UMM – This sounds wonderful, but where are the noodles?

  16. We’ve been sweatin’ it out in the valley too so eating this when the night cools down will be wonderful!

  17. Chungah,

    You should call it Summer chicken and vegetable soup since there are no noodles. 😉
    Thanks for your amazing recipes!
