  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 2 stalks celery (diced)
  • 2 carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 12 cups chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 8 ounces egg noodle
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley (minced)
  • ½ lemon
  • 1 cup cooked chicken (shredded)
  • generous amount of salt and pepper


  • In a large stock pot or dutch oven, melt butter over medium high heat. Add onion, celery, and carrot. Stir occasionally and saute until they start to brown and are fragrant. Add garlic, stir, and cook for another couple of minutes.
  • Add chicken broth, bay leaves, and thyme. Continue to heat to bring the soup to a simmer. Just before it boils, remove from heat and add noodles, parsley, lemon, and cooked chicken. Noodles will cook in the hot broth. Add salt and pepper, to taste.


Makes 4 quarts.
If soup is stored in the refrigerator or freezer, the noodles will get mushy. If you don't mind, add the amount indicated. If you prefer your noodles to have a little bite, only add noodles to the amount of soup you plan on eating. Then, store leftover soup and add more noodles when you reheat.
