Easy Homemade Chicken Soup Recipe

Since my daughter is gluten intolerant, I generally go with a gluten-free option whenever possible. With soup, it’s a fairly easy thing to do. You just substitute rice for whatever pasta option the recipe calls for.

I take a few shortcuts to save time by starting with chicken broth.

This chicken soup recipe is the one I turn to when anyone in the house is sick. It’s easy and everyone knows that chicken soup is just what you do when you’re sick.

How do you make chicken soup from scratch?

This easy recipe will show you exactly how to make my easy homemade chicken soup recipe. I used rice and carrots. But, you could add gluten-free pasta and peas if you prefer.

Or, if you are not concerned about gluten, you can use regular orzo. My homemade chicken soup recipes from scratch is about as easy as it gets.

If you like a creamy chicken soup, you can try this chicken corn soup. It can be prepared in one pot and is ready in less than an hour. Make a batch today and it will be a favorite.

Do you cook the chicken before you put it in the soup?

Yes, you should cook the chicken first. Or, you can use leftover chicken from a previous meal. It’s up to you. In a pinch, canned chicken would work as well. I make my homemade chicken soup with chicken breast.

Being prepared is important. There’s nothing worse than realizing you’re starting to feel rotten but have nothing on hand to take to treat your symptoms.

I don’t want to have to drive to the store when I’m sick to get cough medicine and cough drops. I always keep the basics on hand like Signature Care™ Cold & Flu Liquid Daytime and Nighttime, Signature Care Cough Drops Honey Lemon, and Signature Care Non-Drowsy Daytime Cold & Flu Relief.

Signature Care products provide the same quality and relief that national name brands do, but at a better value. Signature Care products contain the same active ingredients & are subject to the same manufacturing standards mandated by the FDA as national brands.

Plus, they come with a money-back guarantee. I love that this is an area I can save money in without sacrificing quality.

  1. I don't often get sick but when I do it feels like a truck hit me and I can barely stand so shortcuts are a good thing! I used to avoid the purchased stock because I'm very sodium sensitive, but when sick, the salt helps especially if I'm trying to replace lost fluids. Mom always made us Campbell's canned chicken noodle soup so this is better with more protein and veggies.
  2. This looks delicious. Thank you for the recipe. We love comfort foods and Fall is the perfect time for a soup like this!
  3. Oh this looks really good! I also have to eat gluten free, and would love to make more soups. What a great idea to use rice for pasta! I love rice soups, and will have to try this one for me!
  4. I make a simple chicken soup like this often, and it is just the thing when one of us is under the weather. If you don't mind garlic, I'd suggest adding a minced clove as well, it has a lot of healing properties
