The BEST Zoodle Recipe

This keto zoodle recipe is the perfect cold-weather soup for any occasion. Whether you’re nursing a cold or just need to warm up, my Chicken Zoodle Soup will do the trick! It’s delicious, filling, and packed with protein and veggies! Zoodles, FTW!

What are Zoodles?

Zoodles are made from whole zucchini with a spiralizer that turns the zucchini into noodles! There are tons of different options for this, but my favorite is _______. Another easy option is to buy frozen zucchini noodles that are already spiralized for you. Keep them on hand in your freezer, as they come in handy so often!

How to Make Chicken Zoodle Soup

Homemade chicken noodle soup is just the best. I don’t know about you, but I love soup weather. When it’s cold outside, a big, hearty bowl of soup feels like a big hug and does the trick to warm me right up. My version of this is so easy to make and even healthier than the original. In just 30 minutes, you’ll have the yummiest batch of zoodle soup for the whole family to enjoy!

This classic chicken soup recipe combines boneless skinless chicken breast, chicken broth, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, lemon juice, water, seasonings, and zucchini noodles to make a hearty, healthy soup that is low carb and full of nutrients! Serve in a big bowl garnished with lemons and parsley and drink up any leftover broth for added health benefits.

Tips & Tricks

Storing Leftovers: Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge. Reheat on the stove or in the microwave.

How to Serve: Serve warm out of the pot and garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

Garnish: I love serving my chicken zoodle soup with lemons and parsley, but this is totally optional! If you want to serve your soup with oyster crackers or bread, feel free to do so! Keep in mind this will increase the carbs and calories.

Shredding the Chicken: An easy way to shred your chicken after it’s cooked is to grab two forms and tear the chicken before adding it back into the soup. This is super easy and works every time!

FAQs

Chicken Zoodle Soup: FAQs

Can I use frozen zucchini noodles?

You can! Because they are frozen, they will give off more water than fresh zoodles. Adjust the water content of the soup a bit to account for this.

Is this recipe Keto?

Yes, it’s keto-friendly! Because I swapped out the noodles for spiraled zucchini noodles, this brings the carb count down significantly!

Can I freeze chicken zoodle soup?

If you want to freeze this soup, I recommend freezing it before adding the zucchini noodles. The zucchini won’t reheat as well as the rest of the soup, so it’s best to make a fresh batch of zoodles when you’re ready to enjoy the soup. Store in an airtight, freezer-safe container for up to 6 months. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator, warm it up on the stove, throw in fresh zucchini noodles, and simmer for 5-10 minutes.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
