This Crack Chicken Noodle Soup is ridiculously good. We ate this for lunch and dinner the same day. We just couldn't get enough of it! Chicken Noodle Soup loaded with cheddar, bacon and ranch. I mean, how could this be bad?!?!? This not only tastes great, it is also super easy to make. PLUS it is ready in under 30 minutes. Quick, easy and delicious - my three favorite things!

To cut down on the prep time of this Crack Chicken Noodle Soup, I used rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken. Rotisserie chicken is my favorite short cut. I always have at least two shredded chickens in the freezer at all times.

I need to warn you that this Crack Chicken Noodle Soup is highly addictive. Chicken Legs has already requested it again this weekend. I can’t wait!!! We like to serve it with some cornbread or a crusty roll and butter.

  1. By the way, the 'crack potato soup' is to die for!!! But I have a (silly) question - what is the dried noodles?? You mean like regular egg noodles?? I'm such a dunce!!

    1. Yes Donna, I would believe egg noodles.. those skinny small ones, like in the picture.

    2. The egg noodles are with the other dried pasta (regular uncooked pasta in the boxes and bags) - I used the fine egg noodles.

    3. I used regular egg noodles. It worked out fine. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

  2. thanks Randee - I need to be more attentive and look at the picture!! Well it's early and cold so that's my excuse. Going to make this though it sounds yum!!! Happy New Year to you!!!

  3. What could I use in place of the condensed cheese soup?

    1. My daughter doesn't like cheese, so I'm going to substitute cream of chicken soup :)

  4. I saw this yesterday and plan on making it today. I have my cooked chicken and veggies all cut up. How could this be done in the slow cooker? Dump everything for high 6 hours maybe? Add chicken in towards the end? Can I still add the noodles?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd just dump it all in - except the noodles - and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Dump the noodles in the slow cooker about 30 minutes before serving the soup.

  5. I have all the fixings to do this today. How can I do this is in the crockpot temp and hours?
    Maybe add chicken when almost done since its cooked already?

  6. I was wondering the same. We have a dairy allergy in our family...that’s the only thing I see so far that would be an issue. (And of course the shredded cheese)... Ideas??

    1. I have a dairy allergy as well (& gluten), I found a recipe to make condensed cheese soup that calls for butter and cheese but I'm going to make it with vegan butter and goat cheddar (which I have no problem with) or nut cheese and see how it turns out. I also have found a really good dairy free dry ranch dressing mix (or you can make your own I guess), but this one is by The Spice Hunter and it's organic.

  7. This is so hearty looking, I could dive right in.

  8. Hi! I plan on making this tonight! I am going to 1 1/2 times the recipe so there is enough to go around! Quick question… Can I used cooked egg noodles instead of dried noodles… My kids don't like the pasty taste of the noodles when I cook it in the soup broth.. If you think it's OK, do I need to make any changes to the existing recipe? Thanks so much!

  9. Steph, so I made this on Saturday - took a bit out for the Missionaries (they say thank you for all the goodies!!) and we - me and hubby - ate the rest. Oh my gosh - to totally die for!! So so good. Not the typical chicken noodle soup (sorry Campbells!!) but totally delish, thick, and did I mention delish!! Thank you again for all the good things you share!!

  10. I made this last night and it was incredible. I used condensed broccoli cheese soup since I couldn't find plain condensed cheese soup and ommitted the shredded cheddar (only because it was amazing enough without it and I didn't need the extra calories). Thank you for another fantastic recipe!

  11. This was good but a little bland for our taste. I added poultry seasoning and it turned out great! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It will go in our rotation for sure.

  12. do you think this would freeze well?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think the leftovers would freeze fine. You might need to add a touch of chicken broth or water when you reheat it. Sometimes the noodles absorb some of the liquid when the soup sits.

  13. Omg this soup is amazing. My husband and I are both home sick with bronchitis and I had a hankering for chicken noodle soup, but not the crappy canned kind. Happened to see this while scrolling Pinterest and thank God I did. This hit the spot. Only thing I changed was using real bacon since we're not fans of the packaged bacon and a few other seasonings (celery salt, cracked pepper, garlic and onion powder). My husband said after his first bite "this is the best chicken noodle soup I've ever had" and he is very, very picky. Great job! ❤️

  14. Could you make this in an Instant Pot?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why? It only takes about 20 minutes on the stove. It would take at least that long in the IP when you heat it up and release the steam. You probably will need to adjust the liquid amounts if you try it.

    2. Holy Chicken Soup! Amazing! By far the best chicken soup I have every had and my dinner guests agreed. Thank you for creating & sharing. I did make it in the CP for 6 hrs on low and it came out perfect.

    3. I made this in an instant pot last night. it was supper convenient, especially since i was cooking the chicken in it before hand instead if using rotisserie. After the chicken was cooked and shredded I added everything but the cheese and milk and cooked it for 4 minutes, then did a quick release. Then I just stirred in the milk and cheese, turned out great!

  15. While very different than our usual, your version looks delicious and I like how hearty it is.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Made this tonight and it was a winner. My husband ate two bowls and said I could make it anytime. That is a high complement from him as he is very picky. I froze the leftovers, so I will see how that goes. The only thing I would change is I would not add the bacon next time, as it was a little salty for me and I don't think the bacon added anything to the soup. Definitely a recipe worth keeping.

  17. Could you use canned chicken in place of "real" chicken?

    1. Sure! If you prefer the canned chicken, you should definitely use it. Enjoy!

  18. Could you use canned chicken? Or would you recommend against that?

    1. Should be just fine with the canned chicken. Enjoy!

  19. Could you sub white rice for the noodles for this?

  22. Going to make this over the weekend. My family prefers creamy soups over broth based ones.
    Does this soup get a little creamy?
    If not, has anyone tried adding cornstarch or making a roux?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just made this--me and my hubby love it! Both for the taste & ease of prep. Thanks for sharing!

  24. Has anyone figured out the nutritional information for this?

  25. Have you tried it with zucchini noodles instead of the egg noodles?

  26. This has got to be the best chicken recipe ever! I see it every where and people are nuts over it. I am going to try.

  29. Ingredient list says "1 (1-oz) package Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix' - assuming this is a typo and it is 1 (16oz) package...

    1. Nope. Not a typo. Each packet of dry ranch dressing mix is 1-ounce.
