  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp parsley flakes

Soup Stock

  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 celery ribs with leaves (diced, about 2 cups)
  • 3 carrots (peeled and sliced, about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup yellow onion (diced)
  • ¼ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic (minced)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper (use 1/2 teaspoon if you don’t love black pepper)
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom or chicken soup
  • 16 oz fresh frozen egg noodles



  • Season chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, dried parsley, and 2 teaspoons of oil. Heat the remaining oil and butter in a large pot or pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear on both sides until golden brown, 5-6 minutes per side. Remove chicken.
  • Chop chicken breast into 3/4 cubes and transfer to a plate, tent with foil, and set aside.

Soup Stock

  • In the same pan or pot add carrots, celery (include leaves), and onion. Cook for 5-8 minutes until they start to become soft.
  • Transfer vegetable mixture to a large pot. Add water, chicken broth, cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup, thyme, minced garlic, salt, ground black pepper and bring to a boil.
  • Lower heat to medium and add chopped chicken.
  • Separate egg noodles and add to pot. Cook on medium for 15 minutes.


  • You can add more water if you think the flavor is too strong. Add 1 cup at a time so you don’t dilute it too much.
  • You can use a rotisserie chicken. Just shred or chop it and use about 2 cups.
