  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 TBS minced garlic
  • 6 TBS flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (to taste)
  • 2 large chicken breast
  • 2 cups uncooked wide egg noodles
  • 2 cups whole milk (or cream or half and half to make it extra thick and creamy)


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat.
  • Add the carrots, celery and onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, for about 4 or 5 minutes, until they are tender.
  • Add in the garlic and sauté for another 1 minute longer until fragrant.
  • Add the flour and stir it well to coat the vegetables in it.
  • Add the chicken broth, then the bay leaves, salt and pepper.
  • Bring the soup to a boil, and add in the chicken. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the chicken is cooked through (an internal temperature of 165 F), about 15 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken and allow it to rest for a few minutes, then shred.
  • Add the noodles to the soup and continue to cook soup until the noodles are done, according to package directions.
  • Return the shredded chicken to the soup.
  • Add in the milk and stir everything together.
  • Serve the soup warm with some fresh rolls or crackers.
