Low Carb Chicken Noodle Soup

When the temperatures are below zero or you don’t feel well, trust me when I say this low carb chicken noodle soup will hit the spot.

This was my first attempt at making a low carb chicken noodle soup.  After doing some research I found that there are some key points to ensuring your soup turns out well.  

First you’ll want to use bone in chicken.  Of course dark meat will give more flavor and is less likely to dry out while cooking.  However, I wanted variety, so I used bone in chicken breasts and chicken legs.  In fact, the bones and joints are extremely beneficial in making the broth.  To break it down, not only do the bones add another layer of flavor to the broth they also contain amino acids that aid in good gut health.  Other benefits include reducing inflammation, boosting our immune system.  In addition to reducing symptoms related to asthma, they also help with arthritis and allergies.  So, if you happen to roast a chicken, save the bones and freeze them.  The more bones you have to add makes the broth more flavorful as it cooks.  

Next is the seasonings.  For the most part the seasoning is pretty basic with a little salt, pepper, minced garlic, and two bay leaves.   However, a friend shared her Abuelitas secret which is to add a little sage.  Y’all, sage takes it to the next level!  It made the broth so delicious that I wanted to drink it straight from the pot.

Lastly another recipe that’s great on a cold winters night is my spicy chicken and spinach ramen
