The Swanson chicken noodle soup recipe contains chicken broth, carrot, celery, wide-eggs noodles and cooked chicken. To make it, combine the first three ingredients in a pot, and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the noodles and chicken, and simmer until the noodles are tender.
Use leftover cooked chicken or a rotisserie chicken for the fastest preparation. According to CampbellsKitchen.com, the recipe calls for extra wide egg noodles, but you can use whatever type you favor.
You can easily create variations on the classic chicken noodle soup recipe by switching the egg noodles for a different type of noodle and by adding additional ingredients. For example, Delish.com recommends making a Mexican-inspired version by adding 1/2 cup of salsa, 1 clove of mined garlic, 1 cup of black beans, 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder and 2 corn tortillas cut into strips in place of the egg noodles.
Another idea is to make an Italian version by adding 14 1/2 ounces of diced tomatoes, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, 1 cup of torn spinach leaves and tortellini instead of egg noodles. Create an Asian chicken noodle soup by adding 2 sliced green onions, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of ground ginger and 2 teaspoons of soy sauce.
