How to Make a Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

Here is the full list of ingredients needed to make this Creamy Chicken Noodle and Vegetable Soup. Please see the recipe card fat the bottom of this post for precise amounts and instructions.

Ingredients Overview:

  • Olive oil and butter
  • Onion 
  • Garlic 
  • Carrot
  • Celery
  • Chicken broth 
  • Dry pasta
  • Flour
  • Milk. I used 2%
  • Frozen peas
  • Shredded cooked chicken
  • Salt, pepper, dry oregano or thyme to taste. Nutmeg and chopped fresh parsley optional.

Steps Overview:

You'll need to chop up the onions, celery, carrots, and garlic and cook them for a few minutes in a bit of oil and butter.

Season the vegetables with salt, pepper and oregano and then add the chicken broth to the vegetables. When the broth starts to boil, add the uncooked pasta to the pot.

While the noodles are cooking, in a separate small pot, combine the butter and flour and cook for a couple of minutes before slowly adding the milk. Make sure to whisk the creamy sauce to remove any lumps.

Add the milk mixture to the soup and let it simmer for a bit. Add the chopped rotisserie chicken, frozen peas and give it a stir. If desired, before serving you can add a dash of grated nutmeg and some chopped fresh parsley. Adjust the seasoning and serve!

How to Store

Store any leftover soup in an airtight food container in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days.

How to Reheat a Creamy Soup

This creamy chicken noodle soup makes great leftovers. But since it will thicken up once refrigerated you might want to thin it out slightly with more chicken broth or water when reheating. While stirring the soup, add enough broth or water until you have the desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Enjoy!
