Preparation of Chicken: Start by cooking the chicken. You can either boil or bake the chicken breasts or thighs until fully cooked. Once cooked, shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces and set aside.

Sauté Aromatics: In a large pot or Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté diced onions, minced garlic, chopped carrots, and celery until softened and fragrant. This forms the flavorful base of the soup.

Make Roux: Sprinkle the cooked vegetables with flour and stir well to coat. Cook for a couple of minutes to remove the raw flour taste. This creates a roux that will thicken the soup.

Arrow

Add Broth and Noodles: Gradually pour in the chicken broth, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then add the egg noodles. Let the soup simmer until the noodles are cooked al dente.

Arrow

Add Chicken and Cream: Once the noodles are cooked, stir in the shredded chicken. Pour in milk or cream to add creaminess to the soup. Add dried thyme, salt, and pepper to taste. Let the soup simmer for a few more minutes until heated through.

Arrow

Serve and Garnish: Ladle the creamy chicken noodle soup into bowls and garnish with chopped parsley for freshness. Serve hot with crusty bread or crackers for a comforting and satisfying meal.
