  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 medium carrots chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp herbs de Provence
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce I used Sriracha
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce low sodium
  • ½ tsp salt or to taste
  • ½ tsp pepper or to taste
  • 3 cups cooked chicken shredded or chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 8 cups chicken broth low sodium, 2 32 oz boxes
  • 3 cups dry egg noodles
  • 2 green onions chopped for garnish


  • In a large Dutch oven or soup pot heat the olive oil over medium high heat.
  • Add the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, red pepper flakes, herbs de Provence and stir. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes until the onion softens a bit and becomes translucent.
  • Add the hot sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper, cooked chicken, dill, parsley and stir. Add the chicken broth and stir. Add the noodles, and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Garnish with more parsley and chopped green onions.



  1. Herbs de Provence is a common herb blend including rosemary, marjoram, thyme, sage, savory, and lavender. If you can't find it, you can replace it with other herbaceous blends such as Italian seasoning.
  2. If you find the soup is too thick for your preference, feel free to add more chicken broth as needed.
  3. Refrigerate soup in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Chicken soup or broth goes bad quicker than cooked chicken by itself.
  4. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
