Mama's "Feel Better" Chicken Soup

Megan Todd


Who doesn't LOVE chicken soup! It really does nourish the heart & soul. This recipe requires one special ingredient.. Love! It's taken me years to perfect this recipe, but well worth it! My kids request this soup every time they get sick, hence the name "Feel Better Soup." It's a perfect comfort food.
This is also one of the recipes I make from my "Blue Moon Roasted Crock Pot Chicken!"
It's quick & easy to make. You can make with noodles or rice. Adjust the seasonings to your taste, as it is perfection for our taste.

I hope you enjoy this as much as our family does!

How to Make Mama's "Feel Better" Chicken Soup


  1. In a large crock pot, add chicken broth. I like to use leftover broth from the Blue Moon Crock Pot Roasted Chicken, it's nice and rich in color and already seasoned.

    Warm chicken broth over medium heat.
  2. When broth has warmed, add water, vegetables, cubed chicken, seasonings, and chicken base if needed.
    Bring to a gentle boil for 5 minutes, reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
  3. Add 12 ounces egg noodles, stir in. Continue to simmer for 10 minutes, noodles will be just about done.
    Remove from heat & allow to sit for 5 minutes. This allows the noodles to complete cooking. Be careful not to over cook, as noodles continue to soak in the juices & can get mushy.

    Serve with crackers, or fresh bread.

    This soup freezes well for later use.
