The BEST Creamy Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup - full of hearty eggs noodles, TONS of veggies, tender chicken and a sherry-infused chicken broth that's comfort in a bowl.
Heat a large stock pot to a medium heat. Add butter. Once butter has melted, add onion, carrot, celery and 1 teaspoon salt. Sweat the veggies until slightly softened, about 3-4 minutes.
Add thyme and garlic, cook another minute. Add flour, stir to coat veggies. Add sherry, chicken stock, milk, bay leaves, remaining salt, and egg noodles. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes, and then add chicken tenderloins. Simmer until chicken has cooked through, about 6-7 minutes. Once chicken has cooked through, remove from pot and cool slightly. Continue to simmer the soup.
Once the chicken has cooled slightly, cut into bite-sized pieces, set aside. Continue to simmer the soup until the egg noodles are cooked, about 10-15 more minutes. They should be soft and plump.
Add chicken back to the soup. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
