Homemade No Noodle Chicken Soup

no noodle chicken soup

It has been quite chilly and rainy here in Sonoma County which means one thing has been on rotation in my kitchen…soup! I love soup (especially during the cooler months) and I’m so glad that my family enjoys it too. It’s so easy to throw together when you’re in a pinch or if you don’t feel like cooking an elaborate meal.

This has been one of my go-to soup recipes for years and I love that you can make it with potatoes rather than noodles. I actually included this recipe in one of my wine club shipments last year. Whether you don’t eat pasta or you’re just looking for a no noodle chicken soup, this one is a winner.

If you make it, please let me know how it turns out!


  • 1 organic rotisserie chicken, pick apart and pull into shreds
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into small squares
  • 8 cups organic chicken broth
  • Salt, pepper, onion powder, and thyme to taste

  1. In a dutch oven or large pot, melt butter. Add the onions and cook until caramelized (this is important because it really gives the soup great flavor.)
  2. Add in potatoes and cook for a minute or two. Then add the rest of the veggies and cook until tender.
  3. Season the veggies with salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  4. Add in chicken broth until the pot is almost full, about 3 inches to the top.
  5. Add in the chicken and let it simmer for at least 15 minutes to ensure the potatoes are cooked through.
  6. Add in more salt, pepper, onion powder, and thyme to taste. Serve with a crusty loaf of bread and a simple salad.

Wine pairing: Sip on Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon while putting this recipe together — it won’t disappoint!
