Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

by Bity

On a cold rainy day, there’s nothing quite like a warm chicken soup. This homemade creamy chicken noodle soup is guaranteed to hit all those spots and have you asking for seconds in no time.

It’s warm, creamy, and full of flavor and most importantly, it’s easy to make. I’m a huge fan of no-fuzz cooking. Of the kind of cooking that requires no special training and can be done fast, easy and will please the whole family.

This chicken noodle soup hits all those marks and more. Try making it an instant pot chicken noodle soup or a veggie chicken noodle soup by adding more of your favorite veggies. You can even use some leftover chicken if you have some around, it will turn out great!

The creamy béchamel sauce will add texture and flavor which combined with the egg noodles and chicken will give you comfort and warmth. I would advise serving this soup immediately as egg noodles can overcook very easily. You can store it in the fridge from one day to the next but it’s definitely a recipe to make and enjoy on the same day, while still warm and delicious.

Try it on a Sunday night with the family, they’ll certainly finish it up in seconds! There’s nothing quite like a homemade chicken noodle soup with egg noodles.

STEP 5: Once all the milk has been added and there are no lumps, add the cream and continue to whisk. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly. Once done, set aside and wait for the soup to be done.

STEP 6: It is at this moment that you want to prepare your noodles per the package’s instructions. Generally, they are only required to be submerged in hot or boiling water for a number of minutes. You want to leave this step for last as you do not want to overcook noodles. Cook your noodles and strain.
