Make it spicy - Add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to kick up the heat.

Recipe Notes

  • The easiest way to shred chicken is to use meat shredders. You can also use two forks.
  • If you have leftover turkey or leftover chicken, you can add it to this recipe. Rotisserie chicken is great to use, too.

Recipe FAQs

What are some good toppings for chicken and noodles?

If you want to add toppings, fresh cilantro would be delicious. You can also add some sour cream and bacon bits on top as well.

Can I use different cuts of chicken?

Chicken breast is the best choice because it's flavorful and juicy. However, if you want to try making this with chicken thighs or cooking chicken drumsticks and pulling off the meat to add, go for it!

  1. On the serving amount it says ‘5’ but I’m thinking with 2lbs of chicken and two cans of soup that this serves more than 5? Looks so easy and I have all the ingredients. I just want to make sure the recipe doesn’t feed an army. There’s just so many days I can eat leftovers. Thank you.

  2. What is “Chicken Soup Cream”?

    Do you mean Cream of Chicken Soup?

    Concentrated (needs water added, like Campbells small red & white cans), or heat and eat, like Progresso soups?

    Thanks!

    1. Yes, that's right. I will change the recipe to make it clearer. Either will work, but I think the thicker concentrated cream of chicken soup is what I normally use.
