Easy Homemade Chicken Soup Recipe

Chicken soup is often the “prescription” most people offer when you’re not feeling well. It’s comforting và soothing and sentimental. There are plenty of canned options out there when you need a quick soup fix, but my preferred method is this from scratch chicken soup recipe you can make at trang chủ in under an hour.

My grandma’s chicken soup recipe was almost always accompanied by Matzo Balls, và was always made from scratch. These days, when I make her recipe, I take a few liberties purely khổng lồ save a little time, but the results are just as delicious.

My secret shortcut when I make my grandma’s recipe from scratch is khổng lồ cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts & thighs in store-bought chicken stock. This helps to flavor the chicken without taking as much time or effort. No hours of simmering, no deboning! You could definitely make your own chicken stock if you have the time, but I never think that far ahead. I vì chưng however always have chicken stock or chicken broth on hand.

Ingredients for the Best Chicken Soup

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts/thighs – you can use bone-in chicken if you like, it will just need to be cooked longer, & then the meat picked off the bones.Chicken stock/broth – I cook the chicken in a mixture of 4 cups broth and 4 cups of water, then use this broth for the base of the soup, adding more boxed broth as needed.Salt – Normally I don’t add salt to lớn the ingredients danh sách since it’s such a common ingredient, but it’s so important for the flavor of your soup.Veggies – Onions and carrots, both peeled and chopped. Sometimes I showroom celery & you can địa chỉ other veggies like peas or mushrooms. GarlicHerbs – Fresh thyme sprigs (dried also works; about 1-2 teaspoons), dried oregano, cất cánh leaves and fresh parsley for the finishing touch.

How to lớn Make Chicken Soup (Almost) from Scratch

When I say almost from scratch, I use fresh ingredients but I use a store-bought chicken stock to save a little time. There aren’t a ton of preservatives in the store-bought box stuff so I don’t worry about feeding it to lớn my family.

Cook the chicken. Cook the chicken in equal parts chicken stock and salted water, then shred the chicken into large chunks. Strain any chicken pieces or fat out of the the leftover stock so I just have the liquid, then mix it aside.

Saute the vegetables. I always cook the veggies and herbs in a little olive oil before for a few minutes lớn soften them và bring out their flavor before adding the leftover stock.Simmer. The veggies, chicken và herbs simmer together in the chicken stock for about 20 minutes (or longer for an even richer flavor), and then you’re ready khổng lồ serve! Simmer on high heat to lớn bring it khổng lồ a boil, then cover and reduce khổng lồ low.

Flavoring Your Soup

The herbs that you use are what is going khổng lồ really impart the most flavor khổng lồ your soup. That, and salt. I used fresh thyme và parsley, dried oregano, bay leaves, garlic và black pepper. Salt is also an important component lớn the flavor profile, as it will heighten the flavor. I tend to lớn not showroom much salt until the soup is finished khổng lồ avoid over-salting it.

If you have access lớn fresh herbs, use them! You can leave them whole and pick them out before serving.

How to lớn Store Your Chicken Soup

Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator & eaten within 3-4 days. In the freezer, it will remain fresh for 4-6 months.

Reheat soup on the stovetop. If you add rice or pasta to your soup, store it separately if possible to avoid mushy soup.

Expert Tips & Storage

I always use low sodium chicken broth so I can control the saltiness of the soup. While I often choose what’s on sale, I avoid the generic brands. Swanson is an all-around great stand by.For the ultimate shortcut, use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken, shredded or chopped, for a super simple soup that only takes trăng tròn minutes.For a burst of freshness, try adding a squeeze of lemon juice to the finished soup. Chicken Noodle Soup or Chicken Rice Soup: You can địa chỉ some cooked pasta or rice but I don’t think it’s always necessary. If you do, be sure to cook the pasta or rice first & don’t just dump it all uncooked into the soup. If you have leftovers, store the soup & the pasta or rice separately or it will get mushy & soak up the broth as it sits. As the pasta or rice releases starch, it will also thicken the soup which you probably don’t want.
What chicken is best for soup?

Chicken thighs offer the best flavor, but chicken breasts cook quicker & are better for you. Bone-in chicken will showroom a little more flavor wile boneless is a lot faster, and cooked in broth will still have great flavor.


What can I serve with Chicken Soup?

I love serving bread with soup because it’s perfect for dipping! Try my simple Garlic Cheese Biscuits, Sour Cream Cornbread, Beer Bread, or Homemade Parker House Rolls. Or for something more hearty, serve with a Club Sandwich or Oven Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
