My version of Souplantation’s Chicken Soup is the first recipe from my self-published cookbook on Amazon, The Self-Love Quarantine 2020 Cookbook: Simple, Delicious, and Healthy Recipes for One.

I’ve tried many chicken noodle soups, but nothing compares to the chicken noodle soup at Souplantation. It doesn’t taste like anything that comes from a can. The part that I love most about Souplantation’s chicken noodle soup would have to be the noodles.
To my surprise, per the Souplantation blog, the noodles only required flour, egg, milk, salt, and water. The precise measurement were not given. I had to browse other websites to find one that came close to that list of 5 ingredients.
Making the chicken noodle soup is a 2-part process 1) preparing the chicken and broth and 2) preparing the noodle. I will briefly go over the first part now. I will later discuss and go into detail on how to prepare the noodle, because it’s more involved.

Then, lower the heat to about medium to keep it at a steady boil for about 30 minutes before removing the chicken from the water broth and separating the meat from bone.
