It’s the dead of winter. 33 degrees F all week. Snow and ice piles everywhere. And it’s only January, meaning we basically have about 3-4 months of winter left.

And now that I am officially a Midwest resident, that basically translates to having this chicken noodle soup on the regular all. winter. long. It’s so warm, so cozy, and so soothing during these chilly nights.

Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup - Classic chicken noodle soup that will leave you feeling so good, so warm, so cozy. Perfect for sick days and cold nights!!!

Now this recipe uses bone-in, skinless chicken breasts which means it will take a little longer than usual for the chicken to cook through.

But don’t worry, it yields the most flavorful stock and the most tender chicken bites (so it’s absolutely worth the extra time), doctored up with fresh dill and freshly squeezed lemon juice for a little bit of jazz. SO SO GOOD.

    This recipe is really good! I just added extra celery and carrots, and used boneless chicken breast and it still came out really good!

    This is a really good recipe! I used much more carrots and celery, as well as chicken breast and it came out perfect!

    yummy in my tummy

  5. This recipe was awesome. I did tweak it a bit. I browned the chicken in the butter with the garlic. But other than this I followed it. Came out amazing. 

  6. The best chicken soup ever!!!!

  7. This was phenomenal. It’s difficult to describe how the flavors meld, but I’ve made a zillion chicken noodle soups, and this is the only recipe I will ever use again. Incredible. Made it exactly as directed. Thank you!

    This is truly the best chicken soup recipe ever! Only changes we made included using Rotisserie chicken and orzo since that is what we had in the pantry. It turned out amazing. It was rich and velvety. The fresh herbs and squeeze of lemon really brought the whole thing together.

    The chicken noodle soup turned out great, this is an excellent recipe and the chicken! It’s a thick, rich, and tasty soup. I will definitely make it again, I might add an extra cup of broth.

    I have made this three times now.  It is the simplest recipe and the flavor is outstanding.  I used a store bought rotisserie chicken each time and included the fat.  Don’t skimp on the dill and lemon.  Adds flavor and brightness.  Thank you!

    This truly is the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever had. Followed the recipe almost exactly, except used boneless skinless breast as I could not fine bone in skinless. Amazing! Very flavorful. Could not wait to eat leftovers for lunch the next day. 

  13. Delicious and not boring at all! If you’re looking for steamy, rich, and sensually different, this is it. On top of the rich, traditional flavors of grandma’s chicken soup, fresh dill and squeezed lemon add sparkling notes of freshness to the comfort of homemade goodness. I followed the recipe fairly closely, but making a slurry of the juice half a lemon, and the freshly chopped dill, and the parsley. After the noodles were just past al dente, I stirred in the slurry in increments until the tartness spiked. This is an eye opening soup. Seconds will definitely be served.

    Tried it. Based on recommendations here added a few extra carrots and small amount of heavy cream. Excellent flavor and not too heavy and not too light –  just right!

  16. Rated 5 out of 5

    This was so yummy! I made this recipe for my family, but I made a few modifications like the other commenters. I seared the chicken with butter while the veggies sauteed. I added more carrots and celery than the recipe called for. I only used half of an onion. I used 3 “Knorr Cube Bouillon Chicken” with 8 cups of water. I didn’t have bone-in chicken, so I used bone-free chicken breasts – I used about a pound. I used 1/2 a tablespoon of parsley, 1/2 teaspoon of oregano thyme. No dill. I also shredded the chicken.

    The soup is very good ,I just thought the addition of dill was overpowering and will omit it next time

  18. Second time I’ve made it. Once using chicken the other time I made it Vegan using plant based chicken. This Soup is Awesome! Damn Delicious !!! My Favorite recipe. Simple & soo Flavorful!!

    First time ever making chicken noodle soup from scratch. I thought it was a lot more difficult to make! This soup was really good! Filling and tasty—my husband had two servings! I mistakenly bought boneless chicken breasts, but it came out fine.  I seared the breasts in a little olive oil and sprinkled them with poultry seasoning before sautéing the veggies.  I doubled the celery and carrot amounts, and used more noodles to make it more hearty. I skipped the dill; added prob a teaspoon each of thyme and oregano when I added the noodles.  I used reduced sodium Swanson chicken broth as I didn’t have homemade stock. Served the soup with Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. YUM!! It turned out very well. Will definitely make this again!! 

  20. Made the chicken noodle soup, it was delicious will not use the dill again. The dill overpowers the dish. Great without it. Thanks for the recipe. Will use again wi8 the dill.

  21. I confess that I doubted you at the sound of lemon juice, but went through with it because you haven’t steered me wrong. 


    My family loved it and now I wish I made it with more stock.

    I made this with just a few minor tweaks and it turned out fantastic. I subbed half of the butter for bacon grease. I doubled the amount of carrots just because I like them. For the chicken, I used leftover Dijon roasted boneless skinless thighs. I skipped the dill because of dietary issues with it. I added and extra half cup of noodles because I hoped my toddler would eat the noodles. I finished off-heat with just a sploosh of heavy cream to give it a bump of richness. Served alongside biscuits and it was just amazing. Thanks!

    My boyfriend has Meniere’s Disease, and he’s got a cold. Store-bought chicken noodle soup has too much sodium, which can trigger his symptoms. I chose this recipe because of all the fresh herbs and the bone-in chicken. It turned out great! I used unsalted stock so I could control the sodium levels. Please take the advice of other commenters and add as much ginger as garlic (1 1/2 tsp) because it adds wonderful warm heat. I don’t associate dill with chicken soup so used more thyme than dill, and also added two crushed sage leaves to impart more flavor. Served with warm crusty sourdough bread, this was wonderful. Thank you for a great recipe!

    LOVE this soup.  I used chicken thighs, other than that my family loved this!  With the egg noodles & sour dough bread it’s definitely a winner!

    I’ve made this recipe several times and my family adores it. I often make two chickens and use the breast meat for one meal, then make stock out of the rest. This is a great way to use that stock and an alternative when I don’t have any. The whole thing is perfect. My kids froze some dill they grew over the summer so I can get that fresh dill any time. The lemon cuts through the “thickness” of a homemade stock.

  29. Rated 4 out of 5

    This simmering on the stove and it smells wonderful. Luckily we made a stock last night from chicken carcass so it will be extra tasty in this soup. Question though…if not serving immediately, do I still add the dill, parsley and lemon?

    Giving it 4 starts since I haven’t tried it yet. 🙂

    I made this yesterday to get rid of a few extra vegetables in the fridge. I used what I had at the house, so some of the ingredients got modified…  I must say, even cold, this soup was truly amazing!

    Our local Walmart clearances unsold rotisserie chickens, so I use these as a way to always have chicken on hand and make extra chicken stock. I substituted the frozen diced rotisserie meat, and used the four cups of frozen stock I had. I had two cups of chicken broth left from another recipe, so I added that with two cups water and threw in two chicken buillion cubes.  I also swapped out fresh herbs for their dried counterparts. 

    This was so easy, and tasted like I was in the kitchen all day. My children raved. This one’s a keeper for sure! Thank you—yum!

    Stumbled upon this website the other day while googling chicken soup recipes. This was the best homemade chicken noodle soup I’ve ever had, and it was so simple and easy to make! I did omit the lemon juice and dill only because the hubby doesn’t like pickles and I knew he’d detect it. However, I seasoned the chicken with lemon-pepper seasoning after cooking/chopping, and before dumping back into the pot. Also, I added extra noodles for a little thicker/heartier soup, and topped with fresh grated parmesan and focaccia croutons after serving. My husband and son both loved it too, and we all agreed that it was indeed pretty damn delicious!

    P.S. I am back again today, excited to try out the quinoa enchilada casserole for “Taco Tuesday”. I have no doubt it’ll be amazing too. I’m so happy I found this website as I embark on a quest of new recipes for a new year. Thank you!

    Delicious soup on Christmas Eve! The only addition I made was equal parts minced ginger to the garlic. Love that flavor note. I did dice boneless chicken prior and let brown a bit after mirepoix was tender, just to speed up cooking (time crunch). And lastly, I did cook the egg noodles beforehand so they didn’t get soggy. Followed everything else to the letter and it’s amazing. I LOVE your recipes!!

    Very fast and easy. If you’re in a hurry you can use a rotisserie chicken, which is almost as good. It’s never been easier to make homemade broth if you have an Instant Pot. Much better than the boxed stuff.

    Made this recipe on a Thursday morning of our first snow fall, my daughter couldn’t feed it to my granddaughter fast enough, its delicious and easy to make I had everything on hand except for the fresh dill,  used the dried, will continue to make thru out the winter months

    This recipe is solid! I made a couple of additions by adding about 1/4 cup of soy sauce for some extra umami and 2 Tb of dried oregano. I can see this recipe being great with some grated ginger too. This recipe is a great classic and these additions really gave it the extra cold weather oomf that can help warm and clear your sinuses!

    Only one suggestion- sear the chicken in the pot for a couple minutes on each side to brown first, remove then continue with the recipe.

    Absolutely better than my mom’s chicken soup!! Every ingredient compliments each other and the lemon juice and dill sets the flavor apart. It gives you that warm, home cooked feeling as if you were in the kitchen all day. Whenever I make this soup, I never have leftovers.

    So simple, yet full of flavor. I added more chicken stock so that I could have a more “brothy” soup. Kids loved it too!

    Fantastic as described !
    My only alteration was to swap out the noodles for 1 cup wild rice which needs to be added at boiling,
    then simmer as instructed.
    What a treat to not have seasonings dominate the flavor profile.
    The chicken, vegetables, dill…everything is a stand alone flavor and yet
    blends together perfectly.
    Well done !!

    This is a basic chicken noodle soup recipe, which is just what I wanted. It doesn’t garner superlatives in its rating, but it is a good go-to recipe.

    One caveat: I didn’t even go near the amount of dill recommended. Just a dash will do.

    I doctored things up with a bit of Rosemary, Thyme, and a dash of ginger powder.

    What to do about the noodles continues to be a quandary. In this case, and I believe it will be the default going forward, I boil the noodles separately each time I warm up the soup. That way, the noodles don’t suck up the broth, and it ceases to be soup.

  64. Made this tonight- not feeling great & wanted a comfy soup.  This was amazing!  Used boneless chicken breast and dried rather than fresh herbs because it’s what we had – but excellent!  Will be making this again for sure!

    Wow this was so delicious and comforting! My fiancé wanted to make chicken noodle soup, which his dad made often. We couldn’t find bone-in skinless chicken breast, so we just used regular chicken breast. We hadn’t poached the chicken in a soup before. That was the best part! Loved the recipe, loved the home style feel. Our house smells like celery and soup now. Not complaining.

    Anyway, it smells like heaven, even our kiddos were asking about “what smelled so good” and I could smell it the next AM. I did use chicken strips (raw, but not on the bone). Then after they cooled I just tore apart and added back to the soup. Still amazing! I also purchased rosemary/olive oil bread from my local bakery. It’s amazing, I love the hint of dill I taste. But all of the ingredients combined just work. Thank you, this is a saved recipe in our home for sure!

    The recipe looks great! I was wondering if anyone has frozen the soup without the noodles, and just added noodles upon thawing/reheating?

    • Chicken soup freezes super well. Just don’t add the noodles, they tend to break apart and become a mushy mess after they come out of the freezer. Boil what noodles you need seperately, and then add at the time of serving. Freeze your soup, then do the same thing when you reheat it.

    Best Chicken Noodle Soup recipe I’ve tried yet. I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand, so I had to substitute the garlic and onion for powdered onion and powdered garlic.

    I’ve made this 3 times. First 2 times didn’t have every ingredient due to shopping only once a week now.. Today I used some leftover baked chicken breasts so seasoning from chicken. Yum! Sharing with some who are shut in. Thanks!

  104. Can you use chicken skinless chicken thighs?

    • I always use thighs because they have so much more flavor then chicken breasts.

      • How much Time does it take to make the thighs and how many did you use? Do you get a lot of meat from it?

        • Dominick, I’ve used skinless bone-in thighs! Thighs give this recipe so much flavor, and you get all the benefits from the bone marrow…..just simmer for 40 minutes and they’re ready. Then de-bone and add the rest of the ingredients…… 😉

    Extremely easy to make. I thought the ingredients were simple but the lemon and dill give the soup a fresh flavour. Very hearty. Will add this to my list of recipes to make.

    I have never made one before but went online to see many recipes This was very simple and unique. Tried this and it was the best chicken noodles ever,  even better than some of the restaurants ones that they sell. Everyone in my family love it. Thanks so much for the recipe. It’s a treasure!❤️

    The BEST chicken noodle recipe I’ve ever had and made!!  The dill and splash of lemon bring such a fresh flavor to the soup 🙂 I can’t believe this recipe isn’t plastered all over the internet with more reviews.  A co-worker of mine brought this in for me two weeks ago for lunch and I’ve got my 2nd pot of this boiling away on the stove as we speak.  Thank you so much for sharing.  Also wanted to note that the soup enhances in flavor as the days go by.  I stored ours in individual plastic soup containers in the fridge for lunch (for the week) and it lasted 5 days only because we ate it all and shared with our fellow neighbors.

    Hands down the best chicken noodle recipe out there. I loves the touch of Lemon and Dill. I used organic Costco bone in Stock and what a great fit. delicious!

  113. I love this! I meal prepped this soup with a side salad and some fresh fruit. Instead of the egg noodles I used white rice since I can’t seem to stop the noodles from soaking up all the broth and it still turned out great!

  114. I made this last night for my husband who’s battling a head cold and it was great! I may have been a little generous with the fresh dill and parsley so I will dial that back next time. It was also great heated up for lunch today. Thanks!!

      I Really love this recipe! It is totally diffrent from the regular chicken noodle soup I have made before! I make tons of soup being from the midwest also! Plus have a lot of dental problems so different soup recipes are GREAT! I did add a few extra things like leeks and I made a whole rosemary thyme chicken that I used but otherwise I followed recipe and it was one of my new favorites.
      Thanks for the GREAT RECIPE!

    Being a divorced man that has very few culinary skills and lives on fast-food due to work (and laziness!), by chance i found your website and after looking at several recipes, I thought I’d try this one as my ex used to make incredible chicken noodle soup and man, do i miss it — especially when under the weather.
    So i tried this chicken noodle soup recipe, carefully followed all the directions and it was not only pretty easy to make but was also absolutely delicious! And i had plenty left for 2 additional meals….

    Thank you so much for providing such a great site with so many very tasty-looking recipes as after surfing through many other recipes you offer, I’ll be trying out many more very soon! Love the site…..

  117. Looking forward to trying this recipe! I’m also in the Midwest and we may get some nice weather come March or April! Last Easter I remember wearing a dress so here’s to hoping just two more months left of winter!
