What’s In That Soup?
Chicken noodle soup is made with chicken broth, chicken pieces, egg noodles, seasonings, carrots and celery pieces. Add a little extra flavor by stirring in freshly chopped herbs (parsley) toward the end of cooking.
According to its theme for chicken lovers, Chick fil A has chicken noodles soup available at the restaurant. It is served in cups and bowls and is topped with saltine crackers.
Although prices can differ from area to area, an average cup costs over $4, whereas a bowl of soup costs over $6 (in 2023). Additional crackers are available upon request.
While chicken noodle soup is still a staple in Chick-fil-A throughout the year, chicken tortilla soup is usually returned to Chick-Fil-A during the fall and winter months, Chicken Wire reported. If you would like to learn more, check out Chick fil a chicken noodle soup.
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Noodles
I recommend making homemade egg noodles for your chicken soup. With whole egg, flour, salt, and some water, are all that you need to make your own noodles.
To learn more, go to my homemade noodles recipe. If you decide not to make your own noodles, then you can buy frozen bags of noodles in the freezer section of your grocery store. Or you can buy bags of dried noodles.
Should I boil noodles before adding to soup? Yes, I recommend cooking your noodles before putting them into the soup.
If you put uncooked noodles into your soup the broth will become thick from the starch in the noodles. Some people like a thick broth and prefer to cook their noodles that way.
Chick fil A Chicken Noodle Soup Ingredients
- Cooked Chicken Pieces (Rotisserie Chicken works well)
- Chicken Broth (make your own or use boxed broth)
- Noodles (homemade or store bought)
- Fresh Parsley
How To Make Chick Fil A Chicken Noodle Soup
Gather all the ingredients to make your chicken soup.
Cook your noodles and chicken if needed. This can be done ahead of time if desired to save time.
I like to cook a whole chicken or dark meat chicken pieces in seasoned water until it is tender (about 45 – 60 minutes). I do not recommend using just chicken breasts because the meat dries out in the soup and is not very tasty.
The chicken pieces are removed from the broth (chicken water), cooled, and then cleaned from the bones and skin to use in the soup.
The natural flavor broth is strained to remove any unwanted bits. If done ahead of time, cool the broth and remove all the chicken fat that settled on the top.
Add the chopped carrots, celery, and chicken pieces to the hot broth. Return to a boil and then turn down the burner so the soup is at a simmer.
Cook until the chopped carrots and celery are tender. Toss in the chopped parsley toward the end of cooking the soup, just a few minutes before it’s done.
Check the chicken soup for flavor and add seasoning to taste if needed. Once the vegetables are tender, you can add the cooked noodles to the soup is serving right away.
My family likes to leave the noodles on the side and add as little or as much as desired when it is time to eat the soup. Place in a chicken noodle soup bowl. Serve hot with your favorite sides like saltine crackers.
How to Store Chick fil A Chicken Noodle Soup
If you have any leftover soup, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 6 days. Reheat leftovers in the microwave or a pot on the stove.
After a couple of days eating this soup, I like to take the chicken soup with no noodle in it and make Chicken and Dumplings by heating up with is left. Then add the Bisquick dumplings to the hot broth and cook as described in my recipe.
Can You Freeze Chicken Noodle Soup?
Yes, you can freeze the soup if you keep the noodles separate from the soup. Which is what I recommend. If the noodles are put into the soup, I do not recommend freezing it because the noodles will become mushy.
Calories in Chicken Noodle Soup
There are 255 calories in a bowl of this chicken noodle soup. Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Calories are low compared to other cream soups.
As far as traditional cooking is concerned, homemade chicken noodles recipe is often eaten during cold weather. The broth from cooking chickens contains dietary nutrients.
Chicken Noodle Soup helps relieve pain and fatigue! It contains just around 145 calories per cup and has very little saturated fat.
It contains a great dose of calcium, potassium and vitamin A. Adding a new version of favorite restaurant meals at home is usually healthy but is also a good reason for cooking Chick-fil-a chicken noodles soup. You don’t get fresher food on a stove top than soups!
What to Serve with Chicken Noodle Soup?
I like to make my naan bread recipe or garlic naan bread that I cut into small pieces, and I have also made cheddar biscuits to go with this soup. Chicken soup can be enjoyed by itself, or combined with salads, sandwiches, and wraps.
It’s great to eat. It is best with salty crackers or crispy bread! Garlic breads (made from garlic herb butter), herb toast, or sweet biscuits are perfect for serving alongside soups.
Savory grilled cheese sandwiches certainly make a good snack. This soup is something I enjoy making all year, especially during the cold weather. It is ideal for dinner during the night and for preparing for a weekend.

Chicken Noodle Soup – FAQ
Yes, dogs can eat chicken noodle soup in moderation. Pick the chicken and vegetable pieces out along with some of the noodles and cut into small pieces. I don’t serve much of the hearty broth, but my dog loves having chicken soup along with the rest of the family!!
Yes, Chick fil A Chicken Soup is very good! This copycat Chick fil A Chicken Noodle Soup is even better!! Make sure the hearty broth is seasoned properly and serve with the homemade noodles.
Seasoning adds a lot of flavors to a bland soup. I like to use Lawry’s seasoned salt and Morton’s Natures seasonings. If desired, you can add some chicken bouillon to the broth while cooking to boost up the flavor. Use boxed chicken broth as your base when starting out the soup also helps with bland soup.
Yes, you can! I like to cook the chicken in broth or seasoned water before I start making the soup. Make sure to strain the broth before making the soup is a very important tip!!
