Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 8 oz egg noodles
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by heating a large pot over medium heat. Add a splash of olive oil and sauté the diced onion, sliced carrots, and chopped celery until they begin to soften.
  2. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the chicken breasts, whole, to the pot along with the bay leaves and dried thyme. Pour in the chicken broth, ensuring the chicken is fully submerged. Bring the broth to a gentle simmer, then cover the pot and let the chicken cook for about 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked.
  4. Remove the cooked chicken from the pot and shred it using two forks. Return the shredded chicken to the pot.
  5. In a separate pot, cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain and add the noodles to the chicken soup.
  6. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the flavors to meld by letting the soup simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes.
  7. Discard the bay leaves and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  8. Serve the homemade chicken noodle soup hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
