It’s healthy, hearty and YOU made it!


  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Carrots–Diced
  • 2 Celery Stocks – Diced
  • ½ Onion – Finely Diced
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 6 Cups of Chicken Broth (Click Here For Homemade Chicken Stock Recipe)
  • 2 Cups Shredded Chicken or Cubed Chicken
  • 1 cup Small Pasta (Pastina, Orzo, Acini di Pepe, Ditalini, Capellini, Spezzati)


  • In a Dutch oven or deep pot add oil and heat on medium until shimmering.  Add diced onions, carrots and celery and a pinch of salt. Cook for about 4 or 5 minutes until the onions become translucent and the veggies soften a bit.
  • Add the broth and the chicken and bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat and simmer.  Check for seasoning and adjust if necessary. Add the noodles and cook until al dente.


  • Don’t overcook the noodles, they will get mushy.
  • You can use store-bought chicken broth, but if you do, choose a good-quality low-sodium broth.
  • Want more chicken? More pasta? Just add a little more.
  • Add long-grain rice instead of pasta.
