Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup!
3 words…ANOTHER BOWL PLEASE!!
I think this is my new favorite soup… chicken noodle soup has always been my favorite but the added lemon juice and pinch of ginger elevates this comforting dish to a whole new level.
Chicken Noodle Soup is one of my go-to comfort foods especially this time of year and after trying this one you’ll be adding it to your comforts list too.
Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe:
3 large carrots
1 white onion
3 large celery sticks
1 rotisserie chicken -shredded (3 cups)
1 package noodles- I use dumpling noodles- yolk free
3/4 cup lemon juice- 1-2 lemons
5 tbsp olive oil
2 boxes low sodium chicken stock
1 cup water
1 1/2 tbsp salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Start the prep. Chop your carrots, celery, and onion into equal pieces. Shred the chicken off the bone and set aside.
On medium heat in a Dutch oven pot, heat the olive oil for 1 minute.
Add your veggies to the pot and sauté for 7 minutes.
Add the shredded chicken, spices, noodles, chicken stock, and water to the pot and stir until combined.
Turn the heat up to medium high heat and bring the soup to a boil (takes 3-4 minutes).
Once soup is broughg to a boil turn the heat to medium low and cover the pot with the lid and let cook for 10 minutes.
Uncover the pot and add your lemon juice. Stir the lemon juice in and let cook for another 2 minutes on low heat.
Turn off the heat, give the soup a little stir and ENJOY!!
I love the soup as is but when Im craving spice, I like to top mine with red pepper flakes. Another great topping is parmesan because you can never go wrong with adding cheese.
