Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
I love making this recipe when I have a craving for chicken noodle soup but don’t have time to make the soup completely from scratch. My family adores this recipe which is always a win (especially with my picky 5-year-old) plus it freezes great, too!
This Chicken Noodle Soup with Rotisserie Chicken recipe is great to make when sickness hits your family. We all know that when taking care of sick kiddos or even yourself, the last thing you want to think about is dinner, but don’t worry because I’ve got you covered! I like to make a big batch of this soup for freezing and having on hand in such moments. Below you’ll find my instructions for freezing this Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup.
Soup Freezing Instructions:
- Follow all of step 1 of the recipe below. Then, turn off the heat and add the chicken broth, chicken, carrots, bay leaf, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Give everything a quick stir and then place the soup into freezer quart or freezer gallon bags. Seal the bags well, label them with a permanent marker, and freeze.
- When you’re ready to have the soup from the freezer, thaw the soup completely, add the soup to the pot, add in the egg noodles (If you’re only heating up half of the soup, then add in half of the noodles.), and continue with rest of step 2 in the recipe instructions below.
I love serving this soup with my Honey Wheat Bread (also freezes well) or my Cheddar Biscuits. Both round out this meal quite well. I sometimes serve the soup with my Spinach Salad, and when I serve it with bread and salad I find that I can get 8-10 servings out of this soup.
Cook’s Note – Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe:
- You can make dinner prep even easier by pre-chopping all of the veggies in the morning and storing them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to cook!
- If you don’t have rotisserie chicken on hand, then any leftover chicken or canned chicken will do. You can even use leftover turkey and ham, too.
