Good old chicken noodle hits the ‘soup spot’

There’s nothing quite as comforting as a pot of savory and delicious soup simmering on the stove. And having the right seasonal staples on hand means you’ll be well on your way to having piping-hot meals on the table quickly and hassle-free.

Keep your pantry and fridge stocked with essential ingredients like onions, carrots and celery, along with a collection of earthy, zesty spices and versatile, all-purpose seasonings. You’ll also need a rich and all-natural stock handy, such as Kitchen Basics Unsalted Chicken Stock. Simmered all day with chicken, vegetables and McCormick herbs and spices, this deeply flavored stock can bring a burst of savory warmth to countless dishes. It’s low on sodium so it’s a good-for-you start to many delicious meals beyond soup, like rice, sauces, and more.

Try this recipe for a hearty homemade chicken noodle soup loaded with tender veggies, chicken, egg noodles and robust flavor that puts this stock — aka “liquid gold” — front and center. All you need is 10 minutes of prep time and 20 minutes cooking on your stovetop.


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery

  1. Heat oil in large saucepan on medium heat until shimmering. Add onion, carrots and celery; cook and stir 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in seasoning and turmeric; cook 30 seconds until fragrant. Add chicken and stock. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 15 to 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and tender.
