Recipe By:Chef John
“This soul-warming soup is deliciously simple — just chicken and noodles. What makes it so good is the homemade roasted chicken stock.”

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons melted chicken fat
  • 2 quarts roasted chicken broth (see footnote for recipe link)
  • 4 ounces uncooked wide egg noodles
  • 2 cooked boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Stir in carrot, onion, celery, salt, and fresh thyme. Stir in chicken fat; cook and stir until the onions turn soft and translucent, 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Stir in roasted chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Season to taste with salt, if necessary; stir in egg noodles and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in cooked chicken breast meat and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper to taste.
