  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 8 cups less-sodium chicken broth or stock
  • 2 large carrots peeled and sliced
  • 3 stalks celery sliced
  • 2 packets ramen noodles any flavor – the flavor packet gets tossed
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh dill 1/2 teaspoon dried or more to taste (optional)
  • Coarse or kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Remove all of the meat from the rotisserie chicken. Place the skin and bones and every other little bit left from the chicken into a pot.
  • Add the chicken broth to the pot. Bring to a simmer, partially covered. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, fill another large pot with water, salt it lightly, and bring to a boil on another burner. Cook the ramen noodles (discard the flavoring packet) just until barely tender, stirring so that they separate. Drain and leave in the colander for a moment. Shred the chicken meat.
  • After 20 to 30 minutes, however much time you have, strain the broth through a sieve into the pot you cooked the noodles in, and discard all of the chicken solids. Add the dill and the carrots and celery and return to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes or so, until the vegetables are tender. Add the shredded chicken and the cooked noodles, season with salt and pepper as needed and serve hot in bowls.
