Chicken No-Noodle Soup (Low-Carb)

FYI: I used butternut squash because I am not a fan of cooked carrots, but the calorie and net carb content mentioned in this article is based on a person using carrots, not butternut squash. With butternut squash: calories 325/ net carbs are 9.8 per serving.

I find eating broth based soups for dinner to not only be fulfilling, but it helps accelerate weight lose around the mid-section. This recipe is awesome for people who do not have a lot of time to cook and prepare meals. You are simply going to dump everything into a pot, let it come to a boil, and then serve. Here is what you need to get started:

Ingredients:

  1. pre-cooked Rotisserie chicken from local grocery
  2. sliced celery (pre-cut)
  3. sliced carrots (pre-cut)
  4. diced onions (pre-diced)
  5. 2 boxes of chicken broth (I use College Inn low-sodium)
  6. 2 cups of water
  7. sea salt and black pepper

Basically, all you are going to do is fill up a pot with the 2 boxes of chicken broth, and 2 cups of water. Dump the sliced celery, sliced carrots, and diced onions into the pot, and bring to a boil. Then pull off the skin and fat from the rotisserie chicken and throw it away (whew!). Pull chunks of chicken off the bones, and dump the meat only (no bones) into the pot. Throw the bones away. Let this mixture simmer, and once carrots and celery are tender, remove from heat, and serve in a bowl. Season the soup with sea salt and black pepper to taste.

Chicken no-noodle soup is a great low-carb/low-calorie meal option that will leave you full. You don’t even miss the noodles and its fulfilling. My recipe turned out to be 300 calories per serving. One pot made 6 servings. The net carbohydrate content per serving is 7.4 carbs.
