Chicken Zoodle SoupChicken noodle soup is so comforting and makes such a satisfying lunch.

When you cook those simple veggies down in butter and use real bone broth and chicken it makes for a soupy broth that is so full of flavor and is amazingly comforting.

Chicken Zoodle SoupWe make classic chicken noodle soup quite often, and it is a kid favorite around this house for sure. It’s nice to change things up every once and a while though, and in the summer when zucchinis are abundant, we swap gluten free noodles for “zoodles”!

Chicken Zoodle SoupIf you haven’t hopped on the spirilizer train yet, I think this recipe just might do it for you! It is so nice to fill the kids’ bowls with a soup of mostly veggies and have them happily slurp up every last drop! Spirilized zucchini cooks up super fast in this soup to make a perfect “noodle” texture.

Chicken Zoodle SoupChicken zoodle soup makes a great lunch packed up in a soup thermos for school along with a simple blender biscuit or crackers! I usually pack along some raw cheese (or you can grate some into the soup!), and a piece of fruit and lunch is served!

Chicken Zoodle SoupDouble up when zucchini is super cheap (or overflowing in your garden!) and you can freeze it up for quick pull out lunches come this fall!

Servings 8 servings


  • 1/4 cup or so of friendly fat to cook in butter, pastured tallow or lard, coconut oil, leftover pastured bacon grease
  • 2 medium onions
  • 6 medium carrots chopped
  • 6 medium celery stalks chopped
  • 5 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 quarts bone broth homemade preferable for more nutrients but use what you have
  • 2 cups cooked chicken I crockpot or oven roaster a couple whole chickens at a time and keep the meat chopped or shredded in the freezer to quickly pull out
  • 1 tsp all purpose seasoning
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne if you want more heat you can add more! You can leave it out if you wish but the slight heat is so good in the soup!
  • 6 medium zucchinis spirilized
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste generously season with sea salt if your bone broth was unseasoned


  • Melt the friendly fat in your stockpot over medium heat, add the onion, carrot, and celery with a big pinch of sea salt and cook over medium heat slowly over about 10-15 minutes to bring out their juices and sweeten them. This is where that broth is going to get all of it's amazing flavor!
  • Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  • Add the bone broth, chicken, and seasoning and bring to a simmer.
  • Add the spirilized zucchini and cook for about 3-5 minutes. It will seem like you need more liquid - do NOT add more! The zucchini will let off a lot of liquid once it cooks and the salt hits it. You can always add more broth if you want a brothier soup - but wait the few minutes to see how much liquid comes off the zucchini first!

  1. This looks SO yummy, even though it’s super hot outside right now, LOL. Shhh…don’t tell, but I bought my dad a spiralizer for his birthday coming up in September since he’s cut out all grains. I’m really excited to give it to him but also tempted to use it myself. I will definitely bookmark this recipe to give to him once he has it. 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    This was delicious! I don’t have a spiralizer, so I used a vegetable peeler to make flat noodles instead. It worked great. We’ll make this recipe often. Thank you!

  3. A shredder – basically a Swiss peeler with added little sharp teeth is great for veg of all kinds- and a lot quicker to clean than a spiraliser! Hold the veg with a fork to avoid shredded fingers…..

  4. This looks delicious! I’m going to try to make it tonight. I just have a quick question? Has anyone tried freezing this? I’m moving into a dorm in a week. My cooking resources will be dwindled down to a single microwave. So I’ve been prepping some freezer friendly meals to bring with me. I would love to include this. I’m just wondering how well the zoodles would hold up after being frozen and thawed out…

    1. Hi Megan! I hope you enjoyed your soup! Yes it freezes up well! And if you don’t might a recommendation! You can get a small travel crockpot like this ( to plug in and warm your soup up without the microwave so you can retain all of the minerals your body is sure to need as a busy college student! My husband uses his at his desk for soup everyday!
