FAQs about Chicken Noodle Stew

How to thicken your soup broth?

One of the easiest ways to thicken your soup broth is by adding cornstarch. Another option is to add a roux. Both of these options can thicken the stew without doing much to change the flavor.

Does the kind of chicken you use matter?

You can use really any kind of chicken! I generally recommend using cooked chicken such as crockpotted chicken, rotisserie chicken, or grilled chicken. However, if you plan on slow cooking your stew all day, then you could add in raw chicken.

What are some other veggies I could add to this stew?

Wanting to add some more vegetables into your stew? Try any of these: kale, onion, broccoli, cabbage, corn, spinach, bell peppers. Stews are a great way to use up leftover ingredients, and add more nutrients!

How to make this Chicken Noodle Stew

  1. Gather all your ingredients – This will allow you to move quickly through the instructions, rather than having to stop repeatedly to grab a new ingredient.
  2. Prep your chicken and veggies – I decided to shred my carrots into thin pieces, cut up my celery, and pre-cooked my chicken and then cut it up into bite size chunks. You could also use shredded crockpotted chicken or rotisserie chicken from the store!
  3. Add your ingredients to a large pot and bring it to a boil – Start with the chicken broth and chicken. Once it is boiling, add in your carrots, noodles, and celery.
  4. Cover pot and return to a boil – This will help to cook the noodles and veggies.
  5. Uncover and stir – Continue to boil uncovered until noodles are tender, about 6 minutes. Make sure to stir every minute or so to help the noodles get evenly cooked.
  6. Add in the cornstarch mix and simmer – Combine the corn starch with a small amount of cold water to mix in a small bowl. Pour into chicken stew and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until most of the broth is absorbed.
  7. Allow the stew to cool – Let your finished Chicken Noodle Stew sit on the stove top removed from the heat for 20 minutes to further absorb the liquid.
