This yummy chicken noodle soup is not only very flavorful, but it’s chock full of nutrients and very healing – perfect for these cold winter months when so much sickness is going around! I made the soup Paleo by using spiralized zucchini noodles instead of traditional noodles. However, if you prefer traditional noodles, just replace the zucchini with gluten free noodles and boil them according to package directions on step 6  🙂

Also, I used homemade bone broth to amp up the nutritional value. Homemade bone broth contains vitamins, nutrients, and gelatin which store bought brands just don’t contain – even the organic brands! But if you’ve already clicked ahead to see my chicken broth recipe are shaking your head at me that you don’t have time to let it simmer 12 – 24 hours, don’t fret! I have a sped up version below that I made just for this recipe!

Enjoy!!!

*HERE is the link to my homemade bone broth and shredded chicken. HERE is a post on how to spiralize zucchini 🙂

For a sped-up version of my homemade bone broth and shredded chicken:

Add ALL of the chicken stock ingredients when boiling the chicken. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to low and gently simmer 1 to 1 1/2 hours. As it cooks, skim any impurities off the top of the water. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove chicken to a cutting board and shred and de-bone the chicken with 2 forks. Carefully strain the broth (I use a fine mesh strainer) to remove all of the solids. The chicken bones can be used to make another batch of homemade bone broth 🙂 But Please NoteWhile still better than store-bought, cooking the chicken for 1 1/2 hours as opposed to 12 hours will not extract as much gelatin or nutrients from the bones.

    I love the idea of putting zucchini noodles in place of GF noodles! 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful holiday season and 2015!
