Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup On a Budget


A week or so ago, I told you all I would post my mother-in-law’s homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe. It is so tasty! When I say homemade, I mean homemade noodles and all. Don’t be intimated though – it’s not too challenging and so worth it. Let me know if you decide to try it! For the picture above, I actually cooked a whole chicken and shredded it for this recipe, but it works either way. It’s what I had on hand. This is a very inexpensive meal to make.


Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients for Stage 1:

  • 2 Cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 Cup diced or sliced carrots
  • 1 Cup diced or sliced Celery
  • 1 Medium onion diced
  • 1 Bay Leaf (I add 1 or 2 of these for more flavor)

Step 1:

Cook vegetables in in 2 1/2 Cups chicken broth until veggies are tender.


Fresh Homemade Noodles


  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • Approx. 1 Cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Cups chicken Broth (Can be fresh or canned)


Step 1 for Noodles:

Beat egg and milk. Mix in flour and salt- adding flour to make a stiff dough ( not sticky).

Step 2

Roll out on floured board. Slice into noodles with a noodle slicer or a pizza cutter. They can be as thin or thick as you’d like, but they will expand slightly.

Step 3

Drop into boiling broth and cook until tender ( about 10 minutes).
Step 4

Add vegetable mixtures, including broth and salt and pepper to taste.

Optional Fresh or dehydrated parsley to garnish

  • thats just about the same as my moms/grandmas recipe….the best noodles you will ever eat! When I make them though, its a royal mess in the kitchen. You can do beef as well, just cook it and shred it up same as the chicken. Good eating! I love these!
