Chunky Chicken Noodle and Vegetable Soup


Good Monday to you! Hope everyone had a nice weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

I am in love with this nice chunky bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup! I know I make a lot of soups and say I love all of them, but this one really is one of my newest favorites. You’ll have to scroll down and look at the noodles I picked up at Whole Foods for this recipe. I’ve never seen them before, but if you can get your hands on them, give them a try, you’ll love it! Tastes like it’s right out of a cafe.

In these winter months, even though it’s not all that cold here in CA, there’s nothing I like better to eat than a nice bowl of hot soup, hope you’ll all enjoy my latest recipe. We at the entire pot in just a few days. Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚







Found these great noodles @ Whole Foods, they were in the Kosher section. Really were awesome in this soup. Any old small noodle will work if you can’t find these. I really liked the stir fry noodles too.



Chunky Chicken Noodle and Vegetable Soup

3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 medium white onion, finely chopped

5 stalks of celery, chopped

4 large carrots, peeled and sliced

1 Cup sweet peppers, chopped

1 zucchini chopped, 1/2 inch pieces

1 yellow squash chopped 1/2 inch pieces

1 1/2 Cups eggplant, chopped 1/2 inch pieces

5 cloves fresh garlic, minced

48 oz chicken broth (I used 1 full 32 oz size and 1/2 of another)

9 oz small noodles of choice

1 Tablespoon coarse Dijon Mustard

1 teaspoon hot sauce (doesn’t make it spicy, just gives a nice flavor)

2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (lightly seasoned with salt and pepper)

1 Cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

Pinches of Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and Lawry’s Garlic Salt to TASTE (this differs for everyone, just season until you like it)

1. Place oil into a large dutch oven over medium heat. When hot, saute the onion, celery, carrots, sweet peppers, zucchini, yellow squash and eggplant. Cook and stir until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in fresh garlic; mix in for 30 seconds then stir in the broth. Increase heat until soup just starts to boil. Stir in noodles and cook for 7-10 minutes or until noodles are cooked through, al dente. Stir in dijon mustard, hot sauce, chicken, parsley and seasonings to taste. Reduce heat to low and simmer until ready to serve.

Serves 8-10


Have a great new week! Come back soon for more healthy eating ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I neeedd to ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a large amount of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    This looks so warm and comforting. I love chicken noodle soup recipes. However I’m not a huge fan of store bought broths. Which one is your favorite?

    MMMMMmmmmmmmmmm. I love several things about this recipe. First, I love the idea of adding Zucchini. Second, I love the thin noodles (this way the soup isn’t on noodle overload). Third, I like how you have used Dijon Mustard. I’ve never added Dijon mustard to my chicken noodle soup but it is genius. Thanks for the inspiration!

    this is perfect soup weather! I love homemade chicken noodle soup! i always leave the noodles separate though. I find that they tend to soak up the broth and get mushy for leftovers if i leave them in the soup. i bet cooking them in the soup gives them great flavor though!

    I made this for dinner tonight! It was delicious! I didn’t have squash or eggplant, so I added mushrooms, green & red peppers, and extra zuchinni. I also used spaghetti noodles. My whole family loved it.. even my pickiest eater ate the noodles out of the broth. Thanks!

I couldn’t get the noodles you posted but found the same type of thin noodles in the Kosher isle of the grocery store. These noodles (along with all the veggies) make the soup! OMG, soooo good.

    Well…it’s plenty cold here in the Northeast these days for soup 7 nights a week. Nothing like a nice hot bowl of chicken soup loaded with vegetables to warm the soul…and the tummy!
    I love the step by step photos, Jenny. Wish we had a Whole Foods around here….no such luck-those noodles look like the PERFECT addition to soup of all kinds. I can’t wait to try this one….

    Such noodles can be purchased at any Jewish grocery or on They’re also made to be cooked with the soup! Chicken noodle soup is a traditional Jewish food, so you’ll find many Kosher companies that make great noodles! Recipe sounds awesome!!!

    […] remember is chicken noodle and therein grew my love of slurping noodles.ย  How tempting does this Chunky Chicken Noodle and Vegetable Soup look from Picky Palate?ย  What a great way to spend a lovely winter day curled up on the couch with […]

    Wow!, this was a real quality post. In theory I d like to write like this too ? taking time and real effort to make a good article? but what can I say? I keep putting it off and never seem to get something done

    Julie says:

    Made this soup – could have used more broth and a little more of a kick as it was rather bland, but my kids liked it and had a good time helping me shop for the veggies and took turns cutting them up with me. The noodles were something that I found in the Kosher section at Sprouts/Henrys.

    PS – I personally like reading reviews from folks that have actually made the soup or any other recipe that you post rather than “oh, that LOOKS great”. ๐Ÿ™‚
