How To Make Creamy Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup
You don’t need to be sick to enjoy a good bowl of chicken noodle soup. In this recipe, the classic flavors are brightened up with thyme & fresh lemon juice.
Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add carrots and celery and sauté for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until the carrots are softened a bit, stirring occasionally.
Add garlic and sauté for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant, stirring occasionally.
Add chicken stock, shredded chicken, thyme, bay leaf and gently stir until combined. Continue cooking until the soup reaches a simmer.
Reduce heat to medium-low to maintain the simmer and stir in the egg noodles. Continue cooking, uncovered, for 7 to 9 minutes or until the egg noodles are al dente.
Add heavy cream and stir to combine, then add 2 tablespoons lemon juice and stir to combine.
Remove and discard the bay leaf. Taste and season with any extra lemon juice, thyme, salt and pepper needed.
