What Are Zoodles
Zoodles are simply a zucchini that has been spiralized with a kitchen tool. Zucchini noodles are a great way to cut out carbs in the recipe, but still, get the taste and texture of pasta in a sense.
Can I Use Pre-Cooked Chicken In This Chicken Zoodle Recipe
Yes of course. You are welcome to dice boneless chicken or toss in shredded chicken. Just ensure that you do not use overly seasoned chicken. I love to batch cook chicken and then freeze it so I can toss into soups and stews like this.
What Vegetables Are In Chicken Zoodle Soup
I like to reach for traditional so I added in carrots, onion, and celery. I then added a handful of spices and seasonings to really offer incredible flavor. The seasonings in this soup offer a handful of health benefits as well. Boost your immunity, gain nutrients and more.
Can I Use Bone Broth In Replace of Chicken Broth
Absolutely. Reach for a chicken bone broth if you want added nutrients into your soup. Or if you want to reach for vegetable broth if you don’t want to use chicken. All of these will work great, and compliment the other ingredients nicely.
I always recommend if you enjoy cooking with bone broth, this is a great recipe to add it in. You gain all the benefits in a soup that stands out.
How to Store Leftover Zoodle Chicken Soup
You will want to store the soup in a container in the fridge. This will store for 3-4 days in the fridge. A layer of fat can develop on the top, but you can scrape it off before warming up.
I have used this soup to meal prep for quick lunches for the week. It was SO easy to reheat and boy is it tasty. Great for a quick lunch or even dinner on a busy weeknight.
Can You Freeze Chicken Zoodle Soup
If you freeze this soup, know that the texture of the zucchini noodles could change slightly once thawed and reheated. The reason being is they will soften a bit more. You can always leave the zoodles out and freeze the base of soup alone. Then thaw in the fridge and when you go to reheat toss in the zucchini noodles and heat until warmed and cooked.
