Chicken Soup with Homemade Egg Noodles

Kayleen Rosenkaimer


Whenever we were sick Grandma P.'s soup came to the rescue. She taught me how to make homemade noodles at visits to her home when I was young. Store bought noodles just don't compare. This soup is comforting, hearty and delicious!

How to Make Chicken Soup with Homemade Egg Noodles


  1. Wash chicken then put chicken, broth,cold water,carrots,celery,onion,rice and seasonings in a big pot on stove and heat on high until boils.
  2. Stir to mix then turn down to low-medium heat and cook for 20-25 minutes until chicken and veggies are cooked. While chicken is cooking make the noodles (recipe below).
  3. Remove chicken when done, cool, shred chicken into small pieces and put back into soup.
  4. For noodles--In a small bowl add the flour and make a well in the center.Add to the center the egg,olive oil,water and herb seasoning.
  5. With your fingers pinch pinch pinch until the flour is mixed in and it pulls away from the bowl. (you may use a fork if you don't want to use your fingers)
  6. You should have a ball of dough the size of a large tennis ball. On counter top knead this dough for about 2 minutes until it is smooth and round.Cover with the bowl and let rest for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Now take a little flour and sprinkle it on counter top and roll out the dough until it is thin. You should almost see through it. Sprinkle with a little flour again.
  8. Fold the dough 3-4 times and then with a pizza cutter on a cutting board, cut the folded dough into strips. These can vary in thickness whatever you prefer.Unroll noodle strips then cut into 2 inch pieces.
  9. Heat soup again and then add the noodle strips to the broth. The noodles are done when they float to the top of the broth.
  10. Enjoy your soup!
