Sunday Chicken Soup

I made this soup the other day – it’s one of our family’s favorites – and, like every time I make it, it hit me that I really should share it on the blog! This time, I’m finally getting around to it!

First, a little story about the name: when I was young, my mom and sister and I read a book that talked about a family making “Sunday Chicken Soup.” No recipe was shared in the back of the book or anything, but my mom figured out a rough recipe based on the ingredients mentioned in the book. The soup was delicious (much thanks to my mom, who’s a fabulous cook, I’m sure!) and became a family favorite. We’ve always called the soup “Sunday Chicken Soup” (and sometimes “Chicken Sunday Soup”) ever since!

I think you’ll find that this soup, which is a wonderful take on a chicken noodle soup, will become a favorite in your family as well! It’s comforting and flavorful, with a heartiness from the chicken and a creaminess in the broth thanks to creamed corn and evaporated milk. Served with a side salad and crusty French bread, you’ll have the perfect meal for wintertime (or any time you’re craving something cozy)!

Best-Ever Wild Rice Soup

Sunday Chicken Soup


  • 1-2 carrots, diced
  • 1-2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, chopped (I love buying pre-picked rotisserie chicken for this and then chopping it up a bit)
  • 1 can creamed corn (even if you don’t like creamed corn, it adds a lot to the soup! But you can substitute regular canned corn here too)
  • 2 cans chicken broth
  • 1 can of water (just refill one of your empty cans)
  • 4 handfuls of fine egg noodles (sometimes these are called “kluski” noodles at the grocery store)
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley (dried is great!)


In a large soup pot, heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil until hot. Saute the carrots, onion, and celery in the olive oil for a few minutes. Add the chicken broth; simmer for about 10 minutes, or until carrots become a little softer. Add cooked chicken, creamed corn, and water, and continue to heat. Then add the egg noodles. Cook until noodles are tender, about 10-15 minutes or according to package. Add Italian seasoning and dried parsley. At the end, add the can of evaporated milk and give it a stir. Serve hot, with a side of French bread and a salad! Enjoy!

*Leftover soup may become thicker as the noodles soak up the broth. If you want, you can add a bit of chicken broth when reheating it!

Again, feel free to tag me on Instagram and let me know if you end up trying this soup! I hope it adds some coziness to your day!
