How to Make Cheddar Bacon Ranch Chicken Noodle Soup
Not only does this soup add layers of flavor to comforting classic chicken noodle soup, but it’s no harder to make than the original.
To make this hearty creamy chicken noodle soup recipe, add rotisserie chicken, one can of cream of chicken soup, 6 cups of chicken broth, milk, veggies, ranch seasoning, bacon and cream cheese to a large heavy pot.
Heat the mixture over medium high heat, bringing the soup to a boil. Once the soup boils, turn the heat down to medium low and let the soup simmer for 20-25 minutes.
Once the soup has been simmering for 20-25 minutes, add the noodles to the soup and stir in the cheese.
Stir the soup often enough so they don’t clump together. Let the soup keep cooking until the noodles are al dente.
At this point, you can remove the soup from the heat and serve it or you can thin it out a bit with the remaining broth.
Tips and Tricks for the Best Creamy Chicken Soup
Make sure this soup comes out exactly to your taste by following these tips and tricks:
- This soup is thick. You can thin it out by using a lighter milk, like skim, over thicker whole milk.
- The soup will thicken as it sits.
- Want to make for neater eating? You can break the noodles into halves or thirds before adding them to the pot. If you do break up the pasta, just know that this may make it cook quicker.
- To avoid over cooking the pasta, make sure to remove the soup from the heat as soon as the pasta is al dente. It will continue to cook from the residual heat.
- Don’t have a can of cream of chicken soup handy? You can sub condensed cheddar cheese soup, or even broccoli cheese soup.
- Serve the soup as is or garnish it with extra crisp bacon crumbles, more sharp cheddar, and even some fresh parsley.
- Because the noodles will soak up the liquid, the soup will thicken considerably if you have any leftovers. To reheat, you might want to add more liquid to the soup so stir in equal parts chicken broth and milk prior to reheating on the stove.
