Chicken Soup is a classic. This creamy chicken soup recipe is one of my Mom’s that I’ll never get tired of. It’s truly one of the best soup recipes ever, and I’m so proud it’s in our family. I love having a batch of this in my freezer at all times for when I need comfort food, or when I’m feeling a little under the weather. By far the best chicken soup recipe you’ll ever taste!
Chicken Soup Recipe
This super Creamy Chicken Soup is the best chicken soup recipe you will ever taste!
My mom’s chicken soup is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. I know we all think our moms have the best soup recipes ever, but this one really is unbelievably good. I can’t get over how creamy this chicken soup recipe is, which is one of the reasons it stands out from all the rest.
I’m so excited to share this amazing soup recipe with you guys, but since it’s my mom’s recipe, I’ll let her tell you all about it. Take it away Mom!
Best Soup Recipe Ever
I am always on the hunt. The hunt for the absolute best recipe for every food I love. I get fanatical in my research. I will search, study and test several recipes until I get the perfect outcome (at least in my mind) and then I get busy.
When formulating the recipe for the Best Chicken Soup, I added-a-pinch, took-out-a-pinch and tweaked until I was 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 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.
How to Make this Soup
This chicken soup recipe really is so simple. We like to use Rotisserie Chicken that we can buy pre-made at the store. We simply shred the chicken and use that in the soup. It makes things quick and simple.
We also love to use fresh herbs. This might be a smidge more time consuming but the payoff is worth it. Such a flavor infusion, making this the best chicken soup recipe in the world (in our opinion).
Creamy Chicken Soup
So, come on in from the cold. I’ll hand you a steamy bowl of this creamy chicken soup, a slice of crusty bread and a glass of white wine. Doesn’t that sound like Heaven?
We will sit by the fire; share our stories, laugh ourselves silly and try not to embarrass ourselves by licking the bowls clean. I hope you love this chicken soup recipe as much as our family does. It warms our bodies and our hearts.
We also love to pour this chicken soup over a baked potato for a different way to serve. Optional, but makes it even more hearty! Watch the video to see how it’s done!

I am going to make a strong suggestion that the turmeric and Paprika be sautéed with the vegetables rather than added in with liquid. This will permit the rawness be cooked out. Very rich and delicious otherwise.
This soup is fantastic! We’ve already made it three times. I was a bit confused why the roux calls for stock while the soup calls for broth but we made it once with broth in both and it wasn’t quite as good so from now on I’ll use both like the recipe says.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Andrea!
Oh my goodness! This is the best soup in the world! I served it on a cold wintry night with crusty bread and it hit the spot. Didn’t have Gruyere cheese so omitted it but can’t wait to try it next time! Thank you for sharing!
I’m so happy to hear you loved it, Carolyn!
This soup is wonderful. I was hesitant to spend so much money buying all the herbs and seasoning but as it turns out we’ll be making this soup often.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Andrea!
I made this for supper tonight and it was great. I did use homemade stock but other than that I kept the recipe the same. Thanks for sharing this and for the negative Nancy’s just tweak it to fit your taste, just like this blogger did.
Thanks so much for stopping by, Lisa!!
Hi, I’ve made this in the past and always come back to it because it is so good, but wasn’t there another spice or herb in the recipe before? Paprika? I could be wrong but I swear there was something else optional but I always added it. Just trying to remember what it was so I can make it the same as I always have!
Hi Samantha, I have not changed the recipe! There are a few optional spices, including turmeric, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Hope this helps!
This turned out amazing! thanks for the recipe!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Jane!
Well I hope you’re sitting down…. Definitely not the best chicken soup I’ve ever eaten. I was curious about why chicken bouillon AND broth. Figured it out. This soup is bland. Added all the optional ingredients and had to add salt to improve the flavor. Minimally thick/creamy. Definitely won’t make again. Sorry!
I’m sorry this recipe wasn’t to your taste, Nancy!
Hi what can I use instead of the white wine please as the baby will be eating it
You can use more chicken stock!
Since it comes to a boil and simmers for 45 minutes, the alcohol would probably be cooked off. The only adjustment I can see benefiting the recipe would be to deglaze with wine instead of broth – and the alcohol would cook off definitely. But if it’s a huge issue for you just use more broth! Enjoy :D
