Easy Chicken Noodle Soup with Mueller’s Pot-Sized Pasta


 easy chicken noodle soup

I’m all for easy cooking. I spend enough time in the kitchen as it is so the easier the better. One of my favorite ways to save time is to buy a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. I can usually get about 2 meals for my family from 1 rotisserie chicken. I like using the left over chicken from meal 1 to create a yummy chicken noodle soup.

Easy Chicken Noodle Soup


  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 4 large carrots, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 stalks celery, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups cooked rotisserie chicken, cut into bite size pieces
  • 16 oz of Mueller’s Pot-Size Linguine Noodles
  • 2 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat.
  2. Add onion and cook until translucent.
  3. Add carrots, celery, salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes or until vegetables soften. I usually cover to pot to help steam the vegetables.
  4. Add chicken, broth, water and bay leaf, bring to a boil.
  5. Once boiling add pasta.
  6. Reduce to a simmer and let cook for an additional 8 – 10 minutes.
  7. Add lemon juice and thyme. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.

I used Mueller’s new Pot-Sized Linguine noodles and it was great. At first I thought it was silly to buy pre-cut pasta noodles, I mean I can break noodles in half. But it was a time saver and also meant less mess. I’m now a big fan of the pot-size pasta.
