  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup baby carrots, diced (can also use whole peeled carrots)
  • 1/4 tsp each: garlic powder, onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt, celery salt, turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp chicken base
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, diced small
  • 1 cup Kluski Noodles (up to 1 1/2 cups) Can use other types of noodles, just adjust the cooking time for your noodle type


  • In a large pot, over medium/medium-low heat, saute the carrots in the oil for 3-4 minutes. 
    Stir in the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, celery salt, and turmeric powder. 
    Pour in the chicken broth and add the chicken base, stir to combine.  
  • Turn the heat up to medium/medium-high, and bring the pot to a simmer. Add the noodles and chicken, cook for 12-15 minutes, until the noodles are cooked thru.
    Taste for additional seasoning. 



This soup will reduce slightly as it sits, as the noodles absorb the broth, you may need to add additional broth (or water) when reheating.
