Silly Goose Chicken Soup

With a bit of a spin on a chicken noodle soup, this recipe is easy, delicious, and hearty - the perfect soup for your week.

Silly Goose Chicken Soup

Here's what you need:

  • 2 cups chopped chicken (rotisserie will work fine here)

  • 6c chicken broth

  • 2 cans cannellini beans or similar

  • 1c orecchiette pasta

  • 1 large onion (recommend yellow/sweet)

  • 2 carrots

  • 2 celery ribs

  • 3tsp diced garlic

  • 2-3tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2tsp cumin

  • 1/2tsp paprika

  • 1/4-1/2tsp cayenne pepper

  • Salt & Pepper


Heat oil over medium heat in Dutch oven. Add onion, salt and cook 3-4m until softened. Add carrots, celery, bay leaf and garlic. Cook an additional 5-7m until softened. Stir in oregano, cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Add broth, beans and pasta and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer on low for 10m. Salt and pepper to taste and serve!

Tips from your Top Goose:

  • For a thicker soup consistency, take 2 cups of the finished soup and puree it a food processor then return to the soup and stir and simmer for 5 minutes. My favorite kitchen item is my Ninja Food Processor to use for this as well as chopping your onion. This will change your life, trust me! Check out this review from our Head Honker.

  • You can use any pasta here but I recommend orecchiette because of the size and texture. It will hold up and not get soggy.
