It's made by browning chicken and onions in bacon drippings before braising them in chicken stock and using the cooking liquid to make a sour cream-based sauce. In this weeknight rendition, you'll turn those flavors into a warming soup. Red bell pepper, onion, tomatoes, and paprika make up the base for a broth to cook egg noodles in. Use leftover chicken, or better yet, store-bought rotisserie chicken, to get this satisfying chicken noodle soup on the table faster than you can get everyone seated. Ingredients 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (1 1/4 cups) 1 small sweet onion, chopped (1 cup) ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided 3 tablespoons sweet paprika 1 14.5-oz. can diced fire-roasted tomatoes 6 cups lower-sodium chicken broth 4 ounces extra-wide egg noodles (2 cups) 4 cups shredded cooked chicken (such as rotisserie) ⅔ cup sour cream ½ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus more for topping Directions Melt butter in a large pot over medium. Stir in bell pepper, onion, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in paprika; cook for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and broth to pot; stir. Bring to a boil over high. Stir in noodles and reduce heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in shredded chicken; simmer, undisturbed, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Transfer 2 to 3 ladles of soup to a large heatproof bowl. Slowly whisk in sour cream until fully combined. Return mixture to pot; stir until combined. Add parsley and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Serve topped with more parsley.
