How to Make Chicken Noodle Soup

Classic chicken noodle soup is best with homemade chicken stock. We also share our secret to browning the meat and vegetables for the tastiest flavor.

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup tastes best when made with homemade chicken stock. But if making stock is a scheduling issue, no problem. A quick and easy way to wrap up the flavor of chicken noodle soup is to brown the chicken and vegetables first. Proper browning starts with a fairly hot pan and a little oil, making sure that chicken is dry so it doesn't steam. Be sure to avoid crowding the pan to prevent streaming as well. After the chicken is brown, remove it to a plate. Now, check out those bits on the bottom, they're pure flavor. Toast any vegetables in the recipe into the same pan and give them a stir. They'll loosen those bits of flavor as they brown giving the soup super satisfying depth.
