Chicken Noodle Soup with Bok Choy Recipe

Chicken Soup Bok Choy

When the seasons start to change and you can feel the fall chill in the air, the perfect homemade chicken noodle soup is a necessity. This old-fashioned soup with a new twist has all the flavor of the original and the extra flare of bok choy.

Recipe ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 4 large carrots
  • ½ bunch of celery
  • 2 bunches of bok choy
  • 2 split chicken breasts (bone in)
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 Tbsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • ½ package of egg noodles


Recipe steps:

  • Dice the onion and mince the garlic.
  • Add the onion, garlic, and olive oil to the pan and sauté over medium heat 5-7 minutes.
  • Wash and slice carrots and celery and then add to the pot with garlic and onion for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Pull the skin and any excess fat from the chicken and add to the pot along with all remaining spices.
  • Add 8 cups of water ontop of the chicken and cover the pot to boil on high heat.
  • Once the pot starts to boil reduce heat to a simmer and allow the chicken to cook for 1 hour on low heat.
  • After an hour of simmering remove the chicken from the pot and shred it from the bone.
  • Add the chicken back into the pot along with the salt.
  • Finally add the noodles to the pot and boil for about 7 minutes or until soft.
  • Serve hot.


Recipe tips:

  • Add any additional vegetables to the pot that you like including corn, beans, or peas.
  • Bunches of celery and bok choy will vary, so it’s OK to have a little more or less, depending on your preferences.
