Creamy Chicken Zoodle Soup {THM-S}

Posted on Nov 7, 2016


Creamy Chicken Zoodle Soup (THM-S)When I think back to when I was a little girl, I remember the times I was sick with the flu and in bed all day!  Anyone would agree that those kind of days are just NO FUN!!!  I also remember my parents giving me some liquids once I could keep things down…one of those liquids was chicken broth.Creamy Chicken Zoodle Soup (THM-S)
.  It was not homemade, but a fairly popular brand from a can that has been in stores for years!  It was soothing to sip on the warm broth as I started getting over my sickness.  Now, years later, when I or one of my family members is sick, I think back to the things that made me feel better.  I wanted to have something that didn’t contain all the chemicals, sodium and who knows what else, ready to give to my family.  I would mention that I love soup even on days that I’m not sick! Ha!!

I’m sure we have all heard of zoodles by now; that is, zucchini made into noodles!  It has become the “thing to do” these days.  ~So creative and fun to work with I might add~  Zoodles can be put into a variety of recipes, so I thought why not?  I’ll make a delicious creamy chicken zoodle soup for those chilly days when soup just sounds comforting and good!Creamy Chicken Zoodle Soup (THM-S)

The kitchen gadget I used to make my zoodles is called the Inspiralizer.  There are many brands of spiralizers out there and I am sure they all have their benefits. img_4969-medium

It changed my mind in a hurry.  The creator, Ali, came up with this gadget that I now love to use!  If you’d like to know more about the Inspiralizer, click here!  Creamy Chicken Zoodle Soup (THM-S)

On to my soup…When I took my first bite of this soup I was pretty happy!  It made my tastebuds do a little dance…so flavorful!!  I cannot describe the “comfort food” feeling…you know, the foods that are laden with high calories and high carbohydrates that are not good for you to consume?  Well, this soup has all that comfort in one bowl, but it will not spike your blood sugar!  How cool is that??!!  Amazing I know! 🙂

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Blend
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (depending on how thick you want your soup, start out with 1/8 teaspoon)
  • 2 medium zucchini, spiralized (you can grate it as well)
  • 1/4 cup grated carrots
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken

Instructions

  1. Place butter in large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Once butter is melted, stir in baking blend and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Stir in broth, almond milk, heavy cream, onion powder, salt & pepper.
  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat.
  5. Add zucchini, carrots and chicken. Cook for about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  6. Stir often so your soup doesn't burn on the bottom of pan.

Notes

Rotisserie chicken would taste great in this soup.

If your zucchini isn't getting tender quick enough, cook a little longer. When you make this soup again, place zucchini in microwavable bowl with a tablespoon of water and cover with paper towel. Heat for a minute or until tender, then add to soup.
