Substitutions and Recipe Variations
Following are substitution ideas for recipe variations to assist you in making Chick fil A Chicken Noodle Soup.
Chicken meat. Instead of cooking your own chicken, you can use a fully cooked Rotisserie chicken as a shortcut. Frozen chicken as well as a whole chicken will also work well for this recipe. You’ll want to end up with about 3 cups of diced chicken.
Egg Noodles. We recommend using wide egg noodles because egg noodles don’t continue to absorb the liquid after they’ve been cooked. If you need a gluten free soup, this is the ingredient that will need to be altered. Be sure to use gluten free noodles. And any shape or size noodles will work fine according to availability and your personal preference.
Carrots. We use large carrots that are peeled and diced. But if you prefer to use baby carrots or shredded carrots, either of those options are fine too.
Celery. Your celery should be washed and diced finely before adding it to the soup. And if you don’t care for celery or don’t have access to it, you can eliminate it.
Chicken Stock. Our recipe calls for 8 cups of prepared chicken stock. But, you can also use 2 chicken bouillon cubes and about 10 cups of boiled water as a substitute. Or for a vegan friendly option, use your favorite vegan substitute for chicken stock.
Garlic. Fresh leeks, chives, or onion are suitable substitutes for garlic. You can also use dried garlic powder as a substitute.
Onion. Fresh leeks, chives, or garlic diced finely will work well as a substitute for onion in this soup, if desired. A little bit goes a long way with these substitutes so be careful not to add too much and overpower the flavor.
Olive oil. Butter, vegetable oil, or canola oil all work fine as substitutes for olive oil in this case. The role of the olive oil is simply to keep the sautéed vegetables from sticking to the pan.
Bay leaves. Bay leaves help to add flavor to the soup. Once you’ve made the soup, you can remove the bay leaves. And if you need a substitute you can use dried oregano or thyme. They have similar flavor profiles.
Parsley. Two good substitutes for fresh parsley are dried parsley and chopped celery leaves. Both give good color and flavor to the dish similar to using fresh parsley.
Salt and Pepper. Salt and pepper is simply included to taste. Feel free to adjust the quantities according to your personal preference.
