Recipe: Not Your Mama’s Chicken Soup

The temperature finally broke below 70, that means it's time for a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup!


Not Your Mama’s Chicken Soup

  • 3 cups chicken, cooked and chopped
  • 8 oz. spaghetti, uncooked
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 6 cups chicken stock 
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3 Tbsp. dry ranch seasoning mix
  • Creole seasoning 
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Heat olive oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat and sauté onion, carrot and celery until softened. Season with Creole seasoning, salt and pepper.

Add dry ranch mix and cook for 1 minute, stirring until veggies are evenly coated, then add chicken stock and chicken soup.

Stir together and mix in spaghetti, bacon and chicken, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes, or until noodles are cooked and veggies are tender, then stir in cheddar cheese and half-and-half.

Cook for another 3-5 minute and serve.
