  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced

  • 2 celery stalks, sliced

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 2 cups water

  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

  • 2 cups egg noodles

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preparation: Start by preparing your vegetables. Dice the onion, slice the carrots and celery, and mince the garlic. This simple act of chopping can be quite therapeutic after a hectic day.

  2. Sauté Vegetables: In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and celery. Sauté for about 5 minutes until the vegetables are softened. Stir in the garlic, thyme, and oregano, and cook for an additional minute until fragrant.

  3. Add Broth and Chicken: Pour in the chicken broth and water. Bring the mixture to a boil. Add the chicken breasts to the pot, reduce heat, and simmer. Cover the pot and let it cook for about 20 minutes. This is the perfect time to unwind a bit, set the table, or catch up with family.

  4. Cook Noodles: Remove the chicken from the pot and shred it using two forks. Meanwhile, add the egg noodles to the pot and cook according to package instructions, usually about 6-8 minutes.

  5. Final Touches: Return the shredded chicken to the pot. Season the soup with salt and pepper to your liking. Let everything heat through for a couple of minutes.

  6. Serve: Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with fresh parsley. The vibrant green adds a pop of color and a fresh flavor.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Bread on the Side: Serve your soup with a side of crusty bread or dinner rolls. Dipping bread into the soup is half the fun!

  • Cheesy Twist: For a cheesy twist, sprinkle some grated Parmesan on top before serving.

  • Veggies Galore: Feel free to add more vegetables like peas, corn, or spinach for an extra nutrient boost.
