So instead of driving to Chick Fil A - which can take a long time since it's always so busy - I came up with this Chick-Fil-A chicken noodle soup copycat recipe. Just between you and me, I think I like this even more than the original!
And what I love about this recipe is how easy it is to put together. You can cook enough soup for 8 people in as quick as 30 minutes!
Honestly, once you’ve tried this homemade version, I’m positive it’ll become a part of your regular soup rotation.

- Rotisserie Chicken- my special ingredient to save time and add more flavor.
- Butter- I used unsalted butter.
- Onion- diced small.
- Carrots- peeled and diced.
- Celery- two ribs diced.
- Garlic cloves- minced.
- Chicken stock- or chicken broth.
- By leaves- for some flavor.
- Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper- a pinch of each to taste.
- Wide egg noodles- the highlight of this soup.
- Chopped fresh parsley- for garnish.
If you like that this recipe uses rotisserie chicken, I highly recommend bookmarking this chicken noodle casserole and crack chicken noodle soup for two more delicious family-style dinners that you can make with rotisserie chicken.
By the way, if you want to make this soup even better, you have to whip up this honey wheat bread to go with it. Dipping the bread in the soup is just too good and really makes for a complete meal.
How To Make Chick Fil A Chicken Noodle Soup
Step 1: Prep Work
First, shred the rotisserie chicken into strips. You can do this with two forks or even your hands to just pull apart the chicken. Then, mince, peel, and dice the vegetables so they're ready to be added to the soup.
Step 2: Make the Soup
Next, take out a large stockpot or dutch oven. Melt the butter in the pot and then add the onion, carrots, and celery. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until tender, around 3-4 minutes. Follow that by adding the minced garlic and cook in the pot until fragrant - this should take about 1 minute.
Now, add the chicken stock, bay leaves, and salt and pepper to the pot. Bring everything to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Around the 10-minute mark, add in the shredded chicken and egg noodles, and continue cooking for about 15 more minutes or until the egg noodles are soft. Finally, transfer your soup to bowls and garnish with fresh parsley to taste. Enjoy!
How To Store Leftovers
As I mentioned, this Chick Fil A chicken noodles soup recipe will make about 8 servings, so odds are you'll have some leftovers.
And, like most soups, this one tastes even better days after making it! That said, this chicken noodle soup can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Alternatively you can freeze it for up to 3 months in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag.
How To Reheat This Soup
If you want to reheat your soup, as I said, it tastes just as delicious reheated as it did the day you made it. So, eventhough this goes without saying, it makes a great premade dinner option on busy nights!
My favorite way to reheat the soup is over the stovetop with a cover on the pot, on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until it reaches your desired temperature.
If you want a quicker method, you can warm the soup up in the microwave in 30-second increments until warmed through.
