Best Soup Recipes – Creamy Chicken Soup

When formulating the recipe for the Best Chicken Soup, I added-a-pinch, took-out-a-pinch and tweaked until I am content.  And better than content, I needed perfection. Sometimes this process takes years.

Creamy Chicken Soup isn’t the only recipe that I’ve perfected this way. Two foods for which my search is ongoing are the perfect white cake and perfect meatloaf.  A couple of my recipes I am very proud are my Swedish Meatballs and my Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies. But this…this Creamy Chicken Soup is my all-time favorite. It’s not only one of my favorite recipes, I happen to think it’s one of the BEST SOUP RECIPES on the internet.

      I am a new wife trying to gain some great meals in my repertoire and made this soup last night. Wow! Beyond amazing. I was so excited first off that I made it correctly and secondly that it turned out so delicious! Thank you for sharing! I have already shared the recipe with several family members. This will be my go to chicken noodle soup for sure!
        Becky Hardin
        YAY!!!! That is so wonderful to hear. Thanks so much for letting us know!
      Are those noodles or is that cheese in the soup? Also can the wine be left out & can I use vegetable stock or broth instead of chicken to make this soup meatless/ Thank you!
        Becky Hardin
        It's grated gruyere on the top. We love cheese! :) You can leave the wine out or use a bit of white wine vinegar to replace the wine and can definitely use veggie stock instead. Hope you love it!
Made this soup tonight and it was so good! We loved it! I added cubes of yukon gold potatoes and used parmesan instead of gruyere (to save myself a trip to the store!). It definitely made the keep recipe file, which is hard to do. :-) Look forward to making more of your recipes!
    becky gall hardin
    That is awesome! Love the idea of using Parmesan in a pinch, I think that would taste great. Thanks so much for your comment :) so glad you loved it!
Does the T stand for teaspoon or tablespoon??
    becky gall hardin
    Tablespoon. Thanks for checking out the recipe!
    Susie G
    Hi Abbie, (Susie here - Becky's mom) The capital "T" stand for tablespoon and a lower-case "t" stands for teaspoon. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
could this be made into a chicken noodle version
    becky gall hardin
    Hi! Yes, I think you could, as long as you add cooked noodles. I have never tried that, but it sounds yummy!
i've never had creamy chicken soup, but it does look wonderful especially in this weather!

How long do you keep it on low for (after bringing it to a boil)? And how often do you recommend stirring it so it doesn't burn? Making it now and looking forward to trying it!
    Susie G
    Hey Vanessa, Susie here (Becky's mom). I let it simmer 20-30 minutes until it thickens a little and comes to the consistency I like. This isn't a soup I would leave unattended (even on low) since it has cream and cheese in it. I stir it at least every 3-4 minutes. I use the time it simmers to prepare bread and salad and I'm in the kitchen while it simmers. Thanks so much for trying this soup. I hope you love it as much as we do.
      Vanessa G.
      This soup is just as great as it sounds!! I followed the recipe exactly. I did not have provincial herbs on hand but looked up a recipe online ( and had everything but the savory (substituted with tarragon). I made it during the day and I was able to let it sit on low for about 1-1/2 hours but stirred about every 10 minutes so it wouldn't burn. I also didn't add the cheese until I served it. So so delicious! Thank you for sharing the family recipe! I will definitely make it again and double the recipe so I have some to freeze!
        becky gall hardin
        that is wonderful to hear! thanks so much for letting us know you loved it!! made my day :)

This was SO GOOD!! I substituted evaporated skim milk (about 2 cups/ 1 can) and then skim milk for the rest, instead of the cream. I got this trick from a healthy cookbook, to substitute out evaporated skim milk for heavy cream. This recipe was SO GOOD! I can't say it enough. I toasted a piece of sourdough bread and broke it up on top, and topped with parmesan cheese. It was the most delicious soup ever- thanks for a great recipe!!
    becky gall hardin
    what a GREAT tip for lightening it up! I will have to try that next time I make this (which will be soon lol). so glad you loved it, thanks for stopping by!
Just made this soup (seems like it make around 4 quarts) and and sharing with my daughter and her family for dinner. It is absolutely delicious!
Just made this tonight! Sooooooo yummy on a cold evening!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!! XOXO Tab
