  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup sliced carrots, (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 4 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth, or use homemade
  • 1/2 pound chopped raw chicken breast and/or thighs
  • 1 1/2 cups egg noodles
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter.
  2. Cook onion, celery, and carrots in butter until just tender, 5 minutes.
  3. Add in thyme and salt and pepper. I start with 1 teaspoon of each and add more salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Add in garlic and cook for about 1 minute.
  5. Make a well in the center of the vegetables and add in the chicken. Toss to brown the outside of the chicken, no need to cook it through. (3-4 minutes total)
  6. Pour in chicken broth, and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes before serving.

  7. If you are using my Homemade Egg Noodles, add them in 3 minutes before serving. If using store-bought noodles, add them in 8 minutes before serving.
