Creamy Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup - Simple Winter Comfort Food

The secret to this simple semi-homemade creamy chicken noodle soup is a store bought rotisserie chicken, homemade broth and Reames® Homestyle Frozen egg noodles. #HomemadeGoodness #Reames #AD 

I'm all for taking shortcuts in the kitchen, especially when it comes to dinner. Using store  bought Rotisserie chickens are by far my favorite way to get dinner on the table in a flash. Rotisserie chickens are delicious served all on their own, but they're also perfect as a base for so many easy dinner recipes, especially winter comfort food. 

The last couple of weeks has been bitter cold here in North Texas and I've also been fighting bronchitis for the same amount of time. For me there's nothing better than a steaming bowl of homemade chicken soup when I'm under the weather. 

Let's face it, the last thing anyone wants to do when they're sick is cook, but if I wanted homemade soup I definitely have to make it myself. So last week I mustered up the strength and pulled together this Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup that came together quickly and easily with the help of a store bought rotisserie chicken and Reames® Homestyle Egg Noodles

Reames® Homestyle Egg Noodles are thick and hearty which make them perfect for soups, stews and ooey gooey casseroles. They're  also made with three simple ingredients, eggs, flour and water - just like how you would make them if you made the noodles from scratch. 

Reames® noodles are frozen for freshness and to lock in the hearty, chewy taste and texture that we all love. There's no reason for me to make homemade noodles when I can rely on Reames® for the same homemade goodness. If you haven't been using Reames® frozen noodles you sure are missing out. Let's get started on this comforting Creamy Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup

Start, pulling all of the meat off the bone of the rotisserie chicken and set aside.

Place the whole chicken carcass and some of the skin into a large Dutch oven or soup pot. 
Add enough water to cover the chicken carcass completely. Add 3 stalks of celery and 3 carrots that have been cut in half. Slice the remaining 3 carrots and chop the remaining 3 celery stalks and set aside to use in the soup. 

Add half of the onion (cut into large pieces). Chop the remainder of the onion and set aside for the soup. Add chicken bouillon cube, spices and bay leaves. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Simmer broth for 45 minutes. The longer the broth simmers the more flavorful it will be. 

After cooking, remove the pot from the heat and strain the broth through a fine mesh sieve. Discard the bones, skin and vegetables and return the broth back to the pot or Dutch oven. 

To make the soup: Add the sliced carrots, chopped celery, chopped onion, corn, green beans and cream of chicken soup. Mix to combine.  

Pour the frozen egg noodles into the broth and stir. Bring the broth to a boil over med-high heat, reduce heat to a low simmer and simmer until the vegetables and noodles are tender (about 20 -25 minutes). 

Cut the reserved chicken into smaller pieces and add to the soup.  

In a small bowl, mix the flour, milk and 1/2 cup of broth from the pot to make a thin paste. Mix using a whisk to ensure all lumps are removed. Pour the flour mixture into the soup, stir and continue to simmer on low for about 10 -15 minutes or until desired consistency.    

Ladle soup into bowls and serve. Yum just look at all those hearty noodles!!! This is definitely a stick to your ribs kind of meal. If you decide to make this soup, share your photos and thoughts on social media using hashtag #HomeMadeGoodness

Chicken noodle soup and Salisbury steak look delicious.

Remember growing up my mom would prepare a large pot roast and for the next meal; with the leftover roast she would make into a beef stew using her home grown veggies.
Thank you for this giveaway opportunity

This post brings back so many memories of when my mom used to make us homemade chicken soup!! With this cold, this dish would be the perfect comfort food!

TwinPickle said... #

Chicken noodle soup is an absolute classic! I must admit although I've made many soups I've never tried making a noodle soup and I certainly didn't realize you could buy noodles like that! It looks nice and simple and you know it's going to bring you comfort when you're tucked up with a cold. It's my husband's go to when he's feeling under the weather!

Nadalie Bardowell said... #

Wow, your creamy rotisserie chicken noodle soup looks amazing. There is nothing like a good homemade chicken noodle soup when you’re feeling under the weather or even when its to warm up your heart. I would enjoy this for lunch and even dinner and the best thing I like about chicken soup is boiling the bones and making a broth too.

Marie said... #

We love chicken soup! It's very healthy too, and since it's winter, and easy go-to to warm up a little! I usually add macaroni instead of noodles, works well, too...

Ali Rost said... #

These seasonings are almost exactly the ones I use for my famous “Grandma’s chicken noodle soup” that's a family recipe. I’m excited to see that I was on the same track with you. The difference being the addition of a turnip, increased onions, and a bay leaf. Thank you so much for all you do to make us look like great cooks! x
