The result is an ultra-comforting hearty soup featuring chicken, veggies, and a yummy cream cheese broth with Italian seasoning flavors. I topped mine with pieces of chopped bacon to throw it over the top! Cheesy chicken noodle soup is definitely a must-try EASY meal that’s every bit as warm and comforting as it looks.

Tips for making the best cheesy chicken noodle soup:

    • More cheese please! cream cheese and shredded cheese make this soup an epic comfort food situation! If you’d like to experiment with other favorite cheeses, I think that’d be fun too.
    • Leftover shredded chicken or perhaps a rotisserie chicken is great to use for this idea. You can use egg noodles or any noodles, but we really enjoyed using thin spaghetti. So delicious!
    • You can, of course, use broth, but in a pinch sub in water and bouillon. I enjoy Better Than Bouillon as I think it tastes yummier than traditional bouillon cubes!

This is a family-approved soup!

My family can be a little picky when it comes to soups, and we all enjoyed this cheesy chicken soup so much! As you might guess, the leftovers are yummy, too! Overall, a yummy and easy meal for any night of the week.

Check out what my teammate Amber has to say about this soup:

“This cheesy chicken noodle soup is what Sunday rainy cold day food dreams are made of! I love all the yummy flavors as this soup is nothing short of AMAZING! I never have leftovers because everyone in my house loves it and eats all of it. Pro-tip: I use any noodles I happen to have on hand as it’ll be great with any shape noodle. Don’t forget to top with LOADS of bacon as that MAKES THE MEAL!”

      Thanks Mary! Enjoy 😉

  2. Beto2020

    This is also called Crack Chicken Noodle Soup and is SO good! I make it in the Instant Pot and my family loves it!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome – thanks for sharing!

    • Olgraygirl

      What a great winter recipe–another winner. Of course the bacon addition. Totally agreed about Better than Boullion!

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh good! Thanks for stopping by!

    • dylanfan

      I ❤️ Beto too and hope for a 2022 run.

  3. Cami

  4. jaci

    I would love to know how to make in the instant pot.

    • Maria

      I would do 10 minutes in the IP with 3-4 minutes npr.

  5. Barbara

    Sounds amazing… wondering if anyone has any tips to make it more Keto appropriate for a newbie..

    • Sue P

      I use zucchini noodles in place of pasta in soup– haven’t tried it in this particular recipe, but we always make chicken zoodle soup now 🙂

  6. Thao

    *drools profusely*

  7. Kristy Vincent

    We had this tonight. Amazing!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Really?!! That made my day! Thanks for sharing 😋

      • Kristy Vincent

        Anmnnnnnd I’m making it again now. The kids have been asking for it non stop.

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          Ah yay! So great! Yum, save me a bowl! 🙂

  8. Susanne

    LOVE the ‘Better Than Bouillon Vegetable’! As a vegetarian I use it as a base for any dried beans and soups I make. It makes LOTS of recipes more easily adjusted when switching out vegetables or Morningstar veggie products for meats!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s a great tip! Thanks for sharing Susanne!

  9. Kristen

    This looks amazing. Does anyone know a crockpot recipe?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I feel like you could potentially place ingredients in the slow cooker on low for 3-4 hours and throw in noodles the last 30-45 minutes. I have not tested it that way though.

    • Christine M

      I agree with Lina, but I would save the milk and cheeses for the last half hour and cook the noodles separately and then add them at the end. Noodles always get mushy on me when I put them in the crockpot too early. Also, instead of shredded chicken, I would just put in boneless, skinless thighs (or breasts) and shred them at the end.

  10. Kristen

    Thank you!!

  11. Suzanne H

    My boss just scheduled surgery and I was thinking of making soup for him; this is perfect! Thanks.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I think he’ll love it, and what a kind gesture. Thanks Suzanne!

  12. avallet1

    Couldn’t have seen this at a better time. My family is sick and I have all the ingredients on hand. We-especially my little boys-are soup lovers! Chicken noodle is a staple in our meal planning but this has replaced that! Also made it gf which was a piece of cake. Thank you !

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I help you all feel better soon!

  13. Sherry

    Thank you! I am making this 2nite only I am usind whole wheat noodles.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh nice! Enjoy!

  14. Amy

    Do you think this could be made without the cream of chicken soup?

  15. Sherry

    I made this tonight in my Instapot. It was wonderful! Thank you

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay!! So awesome to hear that Sherry!

  16. JENNIFER HAVILL
