What gives no noodle chicken soup so much flavor?

The combination of ginger, garlic, apple cider vinegar, & turmeric gives it THE BEST flavor. Not to mention – that combo also has great health benefits. Like anti-inflamation, detoxing, and great for digestion.

But none of the flavors are overpowering. So don’t worry if you don’t love any of those ingredients.

Recipe modifications:

You can use whatever vegetables you like. And you can leave out the vegetables you don’t like. You can also use fresh vegetables instead of frozen. But make sure you add any fresh vegetables at the beginning instead of at the end.

And if you want something to serve with this soup – this artisan bread would be GREAT with it.

Can you freeze this soup?

Yes! I normally double this soup and freeze the leftovers in individual portions!

It makes the best lunch during the winter months. I take it out of the freezer and defrost as I need it.

But make sure you have a 12 quart pot or larger if you want to double the recipe! Because a double batch will make A LOT.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1 (16 oz) bag baby carrots, thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 2 celery stalks, halved lengthwise & thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, finely chopped (or 2 teaspoons ginger paste)
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced (or 2 teaspoons garlic powder)
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 10 cups chicken broth
  • 2 chicken or beef bouillon cubes
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3 teaspoons salt (more or less to taste)
  • 1 (12 oz) bag frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 (10 oz) bag frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas (about half a 16 oz bag)
  • 2 cups spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped

Instructions

  • In a large pot over medium heat, add the olive oil, onions, carrots, celery, ginger, and garlic. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until the vegetables are slightly softened.
  • Add the chicken, broth, bouillon seasoning, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, and salt to the pot.
  • Turn heat to medium-low and cover. You want the temperature to raise slowly so the chicken is super tender. Cook for 40-50 minutes, until the chicken breasts are cooked through (165 degrees).
  • Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Shred the chicken with 2 forks.
  • Add the shredded chicken, broccoli, peas, cauliflower rice, spinach, and parsley to the pot. Continue to simmer until the broccoli is thawed. Turn off the heat.
  • Use scissors to cut the broccoli into smaller pieces. Taste and add more salt if needed.
