  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds chicken thighs bone-in, skin on
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 medium carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 cups chicken broth low sodium, 2 cartons
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoon bouillon or vegeta
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 4-5 ounce egg noodles
  • 2 tablespoon parsley freshly chopped


  • Cook the Chicken: Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or soup pot over medium-high heat. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper, and sear them for 4-5 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  • Make the Mirepoix: Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside. Add the onion, carrots, and celery to the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion becomes translucent. 3-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds or until aromatic.
  • Add Ingredients: Add the chicken broth, water, bouillon, bay leaves, thyme, and chicken thighs to the pot. Mix well and bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Add Chicken: Remove the chicken from the pot, peel off and discard the skin. Shred the meat and add it back to the pot.
  • Finish & Serve: Add the noodles to the pot and cook until tender. Garnish with parsley and serve.
