    8 chicken tenders or 4 chicken breasts
    1 tsp dill weed, dried
    3 celery stalks, diced
    18 baby carrots or 3 medium carrots, diced
    3 C no-yolk style wide noodles (this recipe uses Kroger brand)
    3 cans 99% FF chicken broth (Kroger brand)
    4 cups water, divided


Boil chicken in 2 cups of water in a skillet with lid. After the chicken is cooked almost all the way through, break /cut into bite sized pieces while in the skillet. Add dill weed and continue to simmer until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

While chicken is cooking, add 3 cans of chicken broth, 2 cups of water and the diced carrots and celery to a 4 quart or larger pot. Cook on medium heat. Add chicken and the water it's cooking in to pot when it is finished.

In a 2-quart pan cook noodles according to package instructions. Add to the soup pot when they are cooked to your taste. Continue to cook the soup until the veggies are at your desired consitency (I like mine a little on the soft side!). Add salt and pepper to taste.

This recipe makes 10 servings of soup, approx 1.5 cups each.

    A very good basic chicken noodle soup. I threw everything but the noodles (cooked them separately) in the crock pot and had to substitute chicken bullion for the broth which worked fine. I also added a little garlic, because around here we believe that garlic makes everything better! - 7/27/09

    I made this recipe last night, using low-sodium broth and dried italian herbs in place of the dill weed. Fantastic, fast, and the kids love it! - 2/10/09

  • Used low sodium broth and alot of noodles. Thought it was pretty good...I think I would try Italian Seasoning next time instead of the dill. Thanks for posting! Great classic base recipe! - 10/11/10

  • Very good. I think I will use a little onion, and garlic like someone suggested, and a little cornstarch to thicken it up a little. I will definately make this again. - 10/15/09

  • I made this last night...used reduced sodium chicken broth to bring the high sodium down. Also added 4 garlic cloves & one medium onion chopped. A little extra dill weed also. Great idea to transfer over the water from the cooked chicken to the soup. Froze some & have lunch today, will make again - 11/3/08
