Hearty Chicken Soup {Gluten Free}

This is a hearty, healthy, comfort style soup with lots of veggies and chicken. The original recipe came from Picky Palate, but she used a ranch seasoning packet that contains milk, so I came up with my own ranch-style seasoning. It turned out full of flavor and my whole family really liked this one.
Next time I’m going to try adding gluten free noodles using this method:
-Add Tinkyada noodles on step 5.
-Boil for 16 minutes, or until noodles are done.
-Reduce to low and simmer 5 minutes before serving.

    This sounds FABULOUS! I have yet to get my picky eaters to try soup (although I’ve made it many times), but since we are transitioning to a gluten/casein-free diet, they are going to have to try some new flavors. This sounds like a good one to start with… and I actually have all the ingredients already! Thanks so much!

  2. Jana-
    Thank you! Let me know what you and your family think. Maybe your kids will like it because it really hearty and thick and not too brothy… if that’s a word 🙂
