  • 2 cup Egg Noodles
  • 1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 1 ½ tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 3 Carrots
  • 3 Celery Stalks
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 29 oz Chicken Broth Low Sodium
  • 3 tbsp Chopped Parsley
  • 2 Dried Bay Leaves or Fresh Bay Leaves
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper Freshly Ground
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • 6 tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 2 ½ cup Milk 1%
  • cup Heavy Cream


  • Prepare noodles according to directions listed on package (note that you want the noodles to finish about the same time the soup is nearly finished cooking) and drain.
  • In a large pot, heat 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and saute until tender, about 3 – 4 minutes, then add garlic and saute 1 minute longer.
  • Add chicken broth, parsley, bay leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add chicken breasts and bring soup to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Reduce heat to medium, cover with lid and allow soup to cook until chicken has cooked through, about 10 – 15 minutes longer (cook time will vary depending on thickness of chicken breasts). Remove chicken and allow to rest for 5 minutes, then shred into small bite size pieces.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, add flour and cook, stirring constantly, 1 1/2 minutes. While whisking slowly add in milk and whisk vigorously to smooth lumps (it will take a lot of whisking to smooth since this is a lighter roux – lesser ratio of butter to flour).
  • Whisk in cream and bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour milk mixture into soup mixture and return chicken to soup along with cooked noodles and stir. Serve warm with fresh bread or crackers if desired.
  • *If using thicker breasts, slice in half through thickness of breasts so they cook faster and more evenly.
