Soup’s On


There is nothing I like better on a cold wintry night than soup. For the past two Sundays, J has made his grandma Flossie’s homemade chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles. Flossie is of German heritage, so she always made her own noodles. Let me tell you, this soup is delicious. I cannot seem to get enough of it.


The recipe which he modified from Taste of Home is as follows:


1 tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons pepper

2 teaspoons seasoned salt

1 rotisserie chicken (J picks up one from our local grocer, Rouse’s)

5 cups chicken broth

2-1/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

1/2 cup celery

1/2 cup sliced carrots

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/4 teaspoon pepper


2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk

1 tablespoon olive oil


Combine all the first four ingredients; rub over chicken. Remove meat from bones of the chicken, discard all bones. Cut meat into bite size pieces. J simply shreds with his fingers. Cover and refrigerate chicken.

In a Dutch oven, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add mushrooms, celery, carrots, onion, and pepper; simmer for 30 minutes or until veggies are tender.


In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center. Beat egg, milk and oil; pour into well. Stir together, forming a dough. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead 8-10 times. J cuts his into 1 inch squares rather than making the normal long noodle shape.


Bring soup to a boil. Add noodles, cook for 10 minutes or until noodles are tender. Add chicken; heat through

Yields: 10 Servings/Prep time & Cook: 2 hours


I cannot tell you how good this chicken noodle soup tastes. Take it from me, it is delicious and perfect for this cold weather.

Soup’s On, y’all!


  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe. We live in cold, cold Michigan where last night temp was -13 degrees. I made my homemade chicken soup for dinner, never thought about adding mushrooms. I appreciate the noodle tutorial too. I will try that tonight. Only 3 or 4 more days of this freeze to look forward to!

  2. Sounds delicious and sounds like chicken and dumplins except for the mushrooms. Will have to give it a try.

  3. Yummy!!! We have got to get sister to pick a date for our visit!!! I'd hate to have to bring honey :-)

  4. Scrumptious! Our morning low temperature, according to the TV weatherman, was two degrees! Wind chill of -15! Crazy!

  5. Thanks for the recipe, Ron. I'm passing this along to my chef. We love eating soups year round. This one looks delicious!

  6. Sounds delicious! Soup is perfect for a cold evening.

  7. Mercy, that looks good! You are lucky to have J make that for you. It must be good with it being completely homemade. Thanks for sharing the recipe. My husband loves to cook so we may try this. However, we will probably cheat on buying ready made noodles. LOL!

  8. I'll have a bowl right now! Looks and sounds delish ~


  9. Looks delicious! Thanks for sharing. Will have to make this for our next cold snap. Have a great day! xoxo

  10. Sounds wonderful I'm going to add this recipe to the list of "soups of the week". This winter I want to cook a different soup each week. This week is White Bean and Ham soup.

    I too live in Michigan and last night was -13 degrees. Today's high is expected to be 0, but the sun is shining and all the snow we got Sunday (about a foot) is beautiful. You have to try and see the best in every situation (my New Year resolution).

    Will be visiting LA in for the month of Feb, hope the weather warms up, but if not I love LA for your wonderful people and food.

    Stay warm,

  11. Looks so yummy....I will have to try it :o)
    Stay warm!

  12. Soup sure sounds good right about now Ron...it's soooo cold! J's soup looks yummy!

  13. Looks really good! Homemade noodles- I'm impressed! It's been so cold up here I haven't left the house in several days. Soup always sounds good in the winter!

  14. ummm....J's soup sounds out of this world. I have potatoes on the stove, as we speak, for a big ole pot of Potato Soup...Southern cornbread (NO sugar) and fresh green onions.
    OOO, SOUP, YA'LL....:)
    I've never made homemade noodles so will use his recipe and make us some.


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
