Low Calorie & Low Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup is a great fall and winter staple. Especially when it's healthy for you. The low sodium in this soup promotes heart health while the low calorie count helps to keep your weight under control. The recipe is also great for freezer meals, leftovers for the week and is budget friendly. It's even more budget friendly when you use leftovers from my Healthy Herb and Olive Oil Roasting Chicken recipe. Even if you're not a cook, the soup is simple to make. One bowl is hearty and filling.

Ingredients (16 generous servings)
  • 3/4 Leftover Fully Cooked Roasting Chicken ( leftovers from my Healthy Herb and Olive Oil Roasting Chicken recipe are the best )
  • 2 large containers low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 7 no-sodium bullion cubes/packets
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp salt substitute (or to taste)
  • 7 scallions
  • 8 carrots

  • 1/2 bag frozen peas
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 box fideo cut spaghetti noodles
Pour broth and water into stock pot
Add bullion, salt substitute, rosemary and garlic powder
Peel and cut potatoes into cubes, add to pot and stir well
Dice scallions, carrots and celery, add to pot and stir well
Shred chicken, add to pot and stir well
Bring to boil then let simmer until veggies are almost soft (about 1 hour 45 minutes) stirring periodically
Taste to see if you need more salt substitute, add to taste
Pour in frozen peas and simmer soup until peas and other veggies are soft (about 15 minutes)
When you pour in the peas, cook fideo noodles in another pot just until firm according to directions on the box (they'll get softer when added to the soup)
Drain noodles and add to the soup, stir well
Cool then freeze leftovers for freezer meals
