This Chicken Noodle Soup is a family recipe of Kari Skelton and is power-packed with nutrient-rich veggies and a flavourful homemade stock. It really is the best damn chicken noodle soup you’ll ever have! You do need to put aside some time to make it though, but it’s worth it! Our tip is to make extra and freeze it for easy weekday lunches or dinners! Or if you’re in a time pinch, use ready made chicken or turkey stock instead.


  • four litres of homemade chicken or turkey stock (see the Best Damn Chicken Stock recipe here)
  • six to eight skinned and de-boned chicken thighs (if you have enough left over roast turkey or chicken, you can use that instead)
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder
  • three tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • one large yellow onion
  • one large purple top turnip
  • one medium-size rutabaga
  • six large carrots
  • two medium-size parsnips
  • one and a half cups of frozen corn
  • No Yolks noodles (optional)
  • crusty sourdough or Italian bread (optional)
