  • dairy free butter— our go-to is Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
  • fresh carrots— whole, peeled and sliced; frozen works as well
  • fresh diced celery ribs
  • sweet onion
  • garlic— fresh minced
  • chicken broth or stock— use a good quality broth such as Pacific brand. We prefer broth but use chicken stock when we are out of broth and don’t want to make a trip to the grocery store
  • shredded chicken— baked, canned, or rotisserie. We typically use canned chicken for this recipe, but also use leftover baked chicken. You can use chicken breasts, chicken thighs if you like dark meat, whatever you have on hand and prefer.
  • dried thyme— we stock our pantry with McCormick brand spices
  • dried oregano
  • ground black pepper
  • kosher salt
  • gluten free egg noodles— we use Jovial brand egg tagliatelle noodles in this recipe and others such as our chicken noodle dinner
  • optional add-ins— peas, green beans, or broccoli
  • optional garnishes— fresh chopped parsley or fresh dill

How to Make Dairy Free Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup

  1. In a large stock, pot melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the carrots, celery, onion, and garlic to sauté until veggies are tender.
  2. Pour in the remaining ingredients except for the egg noodles.
  3. Bring to a boil and add in the egg noodles. Cook until egg noodles are tender.
  4. Garnish with chopped parsley with added salt to taste.
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
  7. If you are making this ahead of time, we suggest preparing the soup as directed, then adding the noodles to the soup and boiling just before serving. The noodles will continue absorbing the soup liquid.

Storage

Store: Once your leftover chicken soup has cooled down to room temperature, you can transfer it to an airtight container and keep it in the fridge.

It should last up to 3 days; anything longer than that, we suggest freezing it. If you do decide to freeze your leftovers, use a freezer-safe container! See more freezing tips below.

Tip: We also suggest that you store the egg noodles separately from the delicious soup if possible, otherwise they’ll start to break down into small pieces in your homemade chicken soup overtime.

Reheat: To reheat your soup, transfer it to a pot or microwave-safe bowl and heat until piping hot. Enjoy with extra fresh herbs and fresh made egg noodles if desired, the next time you reheat your soup!

Tips and Variations

  • You can make homemade noodles if you have the time and know how. We like to use our storebought egg noodles for the sake of time, but that’s just our personal preference for this gluten-free chicken soup recipe.
  • You can use fresh herbs or dried herbs, if using fresh, you may need to increase quantities. Always use do a taste test of your comforting chicken soup so you can add more herbs and spices as necessary to create the BEST chicken noodle soup recipe you’ve ever had!
  • For a nice pop of crunch, add some homemade gluten free buttery (dairy free) croutons to your soup. Just add them to your serving bowl, not the giant pot of dairy free chicken noodle soup.
  • You can make this soup in a dutch oven rather than a large stock pot if desired.

frequently asked questions

Is chicken broth gluten free?

Unfortunately, most store bought chicken broth is NOT gluten free. Always check your labels. However, there are a few brands that now offer gluten free options.

As we mentioned above, we like to use Pacific brand but you can also use Orrington Farms Chicken Flavored Broth Base which can usually be found at your local Walmart.

We always have gluten free chicken broth on hand so we can make this gluten-free chicken noodle soup recipe whenever and we use chicken broth in a lot of our other recipes.

What are the best gluten free egg noodles to use?

We use the Jovial brand gluten free egg tagliatelle noodles. We have found them at several local grocery stores, including Walmart. They are also available from Amazon.

And we like to keep an extra 2-3 boxes on hand at all times. They are inexpensive, have a long shelf life, and make for a quick meal with this soup and our Chicken Noodle recipe over mashed potatoes.

What is the difference between egg noodles and pasta?

First, egg noodles require eggs in the ingredients, not to mention 2-3 times more eggs are used to make egg noodles than pasta noodles.

Also, egg noodles are known for their classic shape– long thin strips of dough while pasta noodles come in all lengths and fun shapes.

If you really wanted, you could trade these out for gluten-free noodles, but. wehave fallen in love with using egg noodles in our soup.

When should the egg noodles be added to the soup?

To ensure you get it just right, make sure the soup is nearly cooked before adding the noodles. Egg noodles soak up broth readily so ensure you serve the soup as soon as it’s cooked.

Alternatively, you could cook the noodles separately and add to the soup at the last moment.

What to serve with chicken noodle soup?

This soup is easily a hearty meal all on its own. You can also warm up rolls, baguettes, or biscuits and serve with dairy free butter. We also enjoy toasting slices of bread.

Can this be made ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this soup ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. We recommend waiting to add in the egg noodles until you are ready to serve as they will continue to soak up the broth as they sit.

Once you are ready to eat this soup, heat it up in a large stock pan, add in the noodles and cook until tender.

Can this soup be frozen

Yes. If you plan on freezing leftover soup, don’t add the noodles until the soup has been thawed, reheated, and you are almost ready to serve.

Otherwise, if you freeze the soup with the noodles, they will get soggy and fall apart into pieces.
