This Creamy Chicken and Noodles Recipe is comfort food at it's finest! Made all in one pot and ready in just 30 minutes, this is the perfect Fall and Winter Weeknight Dinner.


  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced fine
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced fine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 cups dry pasta, wide egg noodles
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, skin removed and chicken hand pulled or shredded
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, minced


  1. Heat a large dutch oven or pot over medium low heat. Add in the butter and melt. Pour in carrot and onion and cook to soften, about 5 minutes, stirring half way in between. Stir in garlic and cook for 60 seconds.
  2. Pour in chicken stock, egg noodles and heavy cream. Stir and increase stovetop to medium heat, then cover for 5 minutes. Uncover, reduce heat to medium low and stir. Cover and cook an additional 5 minutes until noodles are very al dente, firm when bitten into.
  3. Stir in chicken pieces and cover again for 4-6 minutes, until the pasta is cooked and the chicken is warm.
  4. Next, stir in the fresh parsley.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy! 


  • When cooking the vegetables, watch that they aren't browning at all. We just want them softened, with the onions having a translucent appearance. 
  • Keep a close eye on the pasta to make sure it's not overcooking. Reduce the heat and uncover, if needed. 
  • I like to save the rotisserie chicken to add in for the last 5-8 minutes of cooking, so it doesn't turn into really skinny strands of overcooked chicken. 
  • Serve this chicken and noodle recipe as soon as it is finished for the best creamy texture. Turn off the heat on the stovetop to avoid overcooking the pasta.
