Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Don’t have egg noodles on hand to make quick chicken noodle soup? You can replace them with any of your family’s favorite pasta shapes—just be sure to follow the package instructions for cooking time.
  • tip 2
    If you plan to freeze this simple chicken noodle soup, do not add the egg noodles (they don’t freeze well). Instead, thaw the soup and bring to a boil, then add the egg noodles and cook just before serving.
  • tip 3
    Serve the very best Easy Chicken Noodle Soup by topping with crackers or with fresh-baked Pillsbury™ French Bread on the side for dipping.

More About This Recipe

  • One of the most important components in a perfect chicken noodle soup is the mirepoix. Also called the “holy trinity,” mirepoix is a mixture of chopped onions, carrots and celery used to add flavor to stocks, broths and soups. This easy chicken noodle soup recipe calls for a frozen bag of these veggies, but you can also use fresh produce if you have more time. The general rule is to add a 2:1:1 ratio of onions, carrots and celery. Other cuisines use a version of mirepoix in their soups as well. It’s the base of some soups in the south; Louisiana gumbos also call for onions and celery, but swap out carrots and use green bell pepper instead. In Italian cuisine, soffrito starts with onion, carrots and celery, but also sometimes features chopped parsley, garlic or even cured meats. Now that you know what makes a good base for a delicious soup, try more chicken soups next. Then, make them taste even better with our foolproof tips and tricks.
