So, I’m taking a very short break from Christmas baking for this wonderful warm, hearty, stick to your ribs kinda soup. It’s been COLD here in CA (I know it doesn’t snow, but I am freezing!!) and I knew I wanted to make a good piping hot soup. I started throwing things together and I’m telling you this is one of my newest favorites. Lots of great vegetables and I love the noodles I chose. They are actually a stir fry/chow mein style noodle. You must try it. Go to the asian section of your grocery store and pick some up. They make for the perfect thin homestyle noodle. I cut them up into small bite size pieces to make it easier to spoon up!
Take a peek and enjoy some soup!!
Warm Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, finely diced
4 celery stalks, diced
6 large carrots, peeled and diced
4 Cups fresh baby spinach leaves, coarsely chopped
4 cans chicken broth
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
6 oz dry chow mein noodles (they work awesome in soup!!) I used THIS brand, but any similar noodle will do!
Pinch of salt and fresh cracked pepper
Pinch of Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley
1. Heat oil in large dutch oven over medium heat. When hot, saute onion, bell pepper, celery, carrots and spinach for 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened. Pour in chicken broth and add chicken breast. Bring to high heat until just starting to boil. Reduce heat and add in noodles. Stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, season according to taste with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Simmer until ready to serve!!
8-10 large servings

Simple, one pot, and delicious…definitely my kind of meal! I love playing with all the variations of black bean soup out there, so I will for sure be trying this one soon. Thanks!
Mmmm looks so good! I used egg noodles by accident!
Just found this recipe and bought everything than I realized I don’t have a Dutch oven. Is there an easy way to convert this recipe for the crockpot??
This is YUMMY! I just made it today, for me and my husband,… ringing in the new year with colds and new recipes. Thanks!
Looks perfect for our Texas weather too! Love the noodle choice.
This looks so warm and hearty and YUMMY! Nothing like homemade chicken noodle soup! Mmmm!
I love homemade Chicken Noodle Soup! Perfect for a cold winter day. Your soup looks wonderful!
I am loving soups in our cold weather out here in Northern NY! This looks delish! I am going to look for those noodles today!
Oh this looks SO good! Can’t wait to try it!
Your soup looks amazing, similar to mine but I usually add mushrooms and leave out the spinach. I usually use egg noodles and never thought of using chow mein, but I’ll have to give this a try.
girl it’s gonna be 21 degrees tonight! I will need this for breakfast!
What a lovely soup – it looks so warm and comforting. I wish I had a bowl right now!
OH WOW!!! That looks so good and so warming to the soul. I make home chicken noodle soup but this looks so much better then mine. Thank so much for sharing.
Yum, looks delicious!
This is so hearty and comforting! I love it:)
Mmm this looks so comforting. I love homemade chicken noodle!
