Heart Healthy Recipe: Chicken Noodle Soup

Serves 4. Cook time: 1 hour and 15 minutes.


  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped (tops and all)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and shredded
  • 1 tsp. dried dill or 1 tsp. rosemary and thyme
  • 1/4 bunch parsley, drained and chopped
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cup noodles


Put all ingredients except noodles in a soup pot and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 1 hour, the flavor improves the longer it’s cooked. Add noodles and simmer an additional 20 minutes. Note: Add a salad and crackers or hard rolls. Shredded parnsips give this soup a rich flavor.


The original recipe calls for dill, however, you can substitute equal amounts of rosemary and thyme instead of dill.
