Seven soups every Saturday: chicken noodle soup recipes

Seven soup bowls from Knight Farm Cafe

When I was a little girl, my mom opened a can of Campbell's chicken noodle soup whenever I had the sniffles. Among the many food memories I have from childhood, that's one of the most comforting, and to this day, I reach for chicken soup -- the homemade kind -- when I'm feeling a bit under the weather. As long as the key ingredients (chicken, broth, noodles or pasta) are there, the soup itself might be Chinese, or Mexican, or Thai, or it might be classic American diner-style.

Seven chicken noodle soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Pho ga (Vietnamese chicken noodle soup), from Steamy Kitchen

Chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles, from For the Love of Cooking

Broccoli and chicken noodle soup, from Dine and Dish

Indonesian soto ayam, from Rasa Malaysia

Chinese chicken noodle soup with star anise, sprouts and ginger, from Stephencooks

Old fashioned chicken noodle soup slow cooker recipe, from A Year of Slow Cooking

Sopa de pollo y pasta, from My Colombian Recipes

Find more delicious chicken noodle soup recipes with Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.


A couple of years ago, Chris graduated from college with a business degree, and his uncle offered him an opportunity to manage his own business if he could turn an underutilized farm building in Glocester, Rhode Island, into a year-round restaurant and seasonal ice cream stand. Knight Farm Cafe serves breakfast and lunch, and the soup of the day is often something like a homestyle chicken noodle. The café uses classic restaurant china, like these seven white bowls.

If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents' attic, or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.

It's easy: send one photo, of seven soup bowls. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup (no mixing bowls or troughs, please), and they absolutely do not have to match. Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.

That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (which our family calls "Fat Noodles") was one of my very favorite foods when I was growing up! I love any combination with chicken and noodles.

Always a comfort food, but very comforting when the sniffles are present.

Chicken noodle soup - I completely crave it when I am sick, getting sick, or even after being around someone who is sick!

Hey Lyd,

I am the proud recipient of a Crock Pot! I will be souping it up from now on.
