This keto chicken noodle soup is as hearty and comforting as your mom’s recipe. The creamy broth fills you up, so it is the perfect lunch.
Best Keto Chicken Noodle Soup
You do not have to give up all pasta and noodle soups when you go on the keto diet. You just have to use keto-friendly ingredients.
Chicken noodle soup is one of those recipes that stick with you. It’s the go-to sick-day soup. Slurping it warms you up inside and just makes you feel better.
This chicken noodle soup is the same way. It is full of hearty vegetables that will nourish your body and support your immune system. Plus the creamy broth is the epitome of comfort food.
Keto Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
There are lots of healthy and easy keto-friendly noodle substitutes you can use in this soup. I used fettucini-style Miracle noodles. They are made from konjac flour and only have 1g net carb per serving.
Other low-carb noodles you could use instead include either zucchini noodles or palmini noodles. Spaghetti Squash could possibly work, but I’m not a fan of using it in soup.
This is also a delightful soup to enjoy later in the week as part of your meal prep. Store it in an airtight container that won’t spill. I like to use mason jars to store my soups because it seals the best. This soup will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Keto Chicken Soup Slow Cooker
This is a really quick and easy stovetop recipe, but it is possible to adjust the recipe and make it in the slow cooker.
To make keto chicken noodle soup in the slow cooker, add all the ingredients (except the noodles) to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. During the last 30 minutes, add the noodles. It will be ready to eat!
Best Spices For Chicken Soup
The ideal spices for chicken soup are going to be mild and have a hint of sweetness. I used garlic, oregano, and thyme. Fresh herbs always have the boldest flavor, so use them whenever you are able to.
If you still think your soup is a tad too bland, just add a pinch more salt to it. Salt enhances the natural flavors in the meat and herbs.
Poultry seasoning is another no-brainer spice that people love to add to chicken soup. Or brighten it up with a splash of lemon juice. Finally, a dash of red pepper flakes will spice up the soup without overtaking it.
Best Way To Cook Chicken For Soup
Save yourself even more time and use either canned chicken or shred some rotisserie chicken.
The best way to cook chicken for soup is in the slow cooker with a little bit of chicken broth. When it cooks all day like this, it’s easier to shred and the chicken is infused with lots of flavor from the broth.
Ideally, the chicken should be shredded and tender. You don’t want to use crispy grilled or roasted chicken in a soup, it won’t melt in your mouth the same way.
