Low Carb Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken Noodle soup is a classic recipe, and this tasty soup is quick and easy to prepare with pre-cooked chicken. The low-carb noodles ensure the soup is filling but still suitable for low-carb diets.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes
24 ounces roasted chicken meat, both light and dark meat
32 ounces chicken stock
3 servings of low-carb noodles
1 large onion
2 medium stalks (7 - 8" long) of celery
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 fluid ounce fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
Finely dice the celery and onion and place in a large pot with the chicken stock and poultry seasoning. Place over high heat and bring to a boil, then turn down the heat so the pot is simmering.
Remove any excess fat or skin, shred the chicken and add it to the pot with the other ingredients. Simmer the chicken with the onion, celery and stock over low heat until celery and onions are tender.
Meanwhile, prepare the noodles and add them to the pot. You can use pre-cooked noodles, such as Zero Noodles, or prepare dried or fresh noodles.
Add the lemon juice and zest to the pot and season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer for around 3 minutes, and then the soup is ready to serve!
