Warm Your Heart and Home With Old Fashioned Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

It is January now as I write this article. We are in the depths of winter here and there is frost on the bare branches outdoors. The children have been taking their turns passing around the sniffles. We have had our fill of too many Christmas cookies and are ready for some real comfort food. So this afternoon I will make this lovely old fashioned chicken noodle soup. It will fill our tummies and hopefully chase away the chills and sniffles.


Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 2 hours
Ready in: 3 hours
Yields: Serves six

Cut up chicken


Fresh Veggies!



  • One 3-4lb Whole chicken 3-4 lbs., Cut up into about 8 pieces
  • 2 cups Celery pieces, I usually take a washed bunch of celery and throw in the ends and leafy pieces
  • 3 large Carrots
  • 1 large Yellow onion
  • 4 Cloves pressed garlic cloves
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoons Jhonny's Seasoning Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Tarragon
  • 1 cup White mushrooms sliced
  • 20 ounces Country Pasta brand Homemade Style Egg Pasta, I purchase mine at Costco

Putting it all together

  1. In a large stockpot combine The chicken pieces, 12 cups of water, carrots, onion, celery, bay leaves, tarragon, pepper, and fresh pressed garlic.
  2. Bring to a boil over a high heat and then turn down the to a simmer for about an hour.
  3. Pour the soup through a strainer into another large stock pot. Dump the strained ingredients onto a cookie sheet to cool.
  4. Now you should have a fairly clear chicken broth. Pour the noodles and mushrooms into this broth and boil for about 20 minutes.
  5. When the chicken and veggies are cool enough to handle. Remove the carrots and slice them into thin coins and cut the chicken meat into bite sized pieces. Then return the chicken and carrots into the pot.
