What’s more comforting that a bowl of steaming hot chicken noodle soup? Maybe a bowl of chicken noodle soup with roasted green chile. The steamy broth and heat of the chile gives you a cozy feeling whether you are under the weather or trying to keep warm on a cold day. I seasoned the chicken with verde seasoning to give it a little Southwest flavor and let it simmer in chicken broth for a couple hours until it was so tender it would just fall apart. Once the chicken is prepared everything else can go back in the pot with the exception of the green chile. In the time it takes to cook the noodles this soup is done. The green chile is already roasted and chopped so it can be added to the cooked soup along with a sprinkle of dried cilantro and your done.
I only needed 1 large chicken breast for this soup. If you like more chicken add another piece. Generously sprinkle verde seasoning over the chicken on both sides. Drizzle olive oil in a dutch oven and heat on medium high. Brown the chicken on both sides.
When the chicken is browned on both sides, add 8 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then lower the temperature to simmer for 2 hours or until the chicken will easily pull apart.
Remove the chicken and shred it with 2 forks.
Time to add the carrots and onions. They are cut into small pieces and will cook quickly so I decided to wait until it was time to cook the noodles.
Add the noodles. Noodles tend to absorb much of the liquid after it’s cooked so I cooked about half the amount. If needed you can cook more noodles separately and add to the soup.
Stir the pot and cook according to package instructions. These homestyle egg noodles took 15 minutes to cook and was the perfect amount of time to fully cook the carrots and onions as well. If you like bigger chunks of carrots you might want to give them a head start 5 minutes before adding the noodles.
Once the noodles are perfectly cooked, add the green chile. I used 2/3 cup of hot chile. Adjust the amount of chile based on the heat of the chile and how much heat you want to add to your soup.
Stir the pot to distribute all the veggies and chicken to the noodles.
Serve up a heaping bowl of soup, it might be your new favorite chicken noodle soup!

Aren’t you sweet!😃
I need to order some green chilies and cilantro on my next grocery order as your soup sounds delicious. I’ve got homemade chicken stock and chicken thighs in the freezer so I’m almost there.
It’s hard to just run down to the grocery store these days for just an item or two. Glad you can order groceries, it’s a great service! Hope you enjoy the soup, I’m sure it will be so much better with homemade chicken stock. Hope all is well with you and your family. Take care and stay safe!

Nothing better on a cold winter’s day. Love the use of the egg noodles. I don’t use them much but probably should because, aside from just having a great flavor, they hold their shape and don’t seem to get mushy when left in a soup. Great idea.
I remember you making this soup with home made noodles awhile back that looked so good. This was my comfort soup for the season, something we all need sometimes. I hope everything is going good over your way. Have a great holiday season MJ!
This soup is perfect for this time of year when it’s so cold (25 degrees today in SC!). I love the chile in this recipe, Jan. Thanks for sharing something delicious and good for us!
I hope your holidays are going wonderfully,
At the time I made this soup we were having a cold spell and it was so comforting. We enjoy green chile in almost everything but it was my first time having it in chicken noodle soup. We enjoyed a quiet holiday but enjoyed driving through the neighborhoods with so many holiday lights and luminaria displays. Hope you had a wonderful holiday as well!
