Notes

Tips, tricks, and shortcuts.
  • Use already cooked chicken. - While this is a homemade soup recipe, sometimes it's a little thing like shredding up a gluten-free rotisserie chicken that not only adds flavor but makes dinner come together even faster.
  • Cut the vegetables thicker. - Because the vegetables are sauteed for flavor and then simmered in the broth, you want to make sure you cut your vegetables a little bit bigger for this soup. If you cut your vegetables too small or thin, they can become mushy in your soup.
  • Change the veggies. - If you or your family doesn't like a vegetable, it's easy to switch them out to ones you know they will eat. Peas, carrots, and corn make a delicious combination in this gluten-free soup.
  • Use frozen veggies. - If you don't tend to keep fresh vegetables on hand, you can easily toss a bag of your favorite frozen vegetables into the pot.
  • The right texture for your gluten-free noodles. - If you prefer your gluten-free pasta to have more of an al dente texture, then I suggest cooking them in a separate pot and adding them to the soup once they are cooked and drained.
  • Want fewer carbs? - You can easily swap the gluten-free pasta for low-carb pasta like hearts of palm pasta or even zucchini noodles. That will make this more of a keto chicken noodle soup.
  • Adjust the spices. - I tend to wait to salt and pepper my chicken noodle soup until after the pasta is cooThis This is because not all gluten-free chicken stock is seasoned the same. Some are already very salty, while other, I will find, needs more salt.
  • Lemon juice. - Sometimes, my chicken stock isn't cutting it, and I really need to brighten it up when making this soup. Adding just about one tablespoon of lemon juice can really add a lot of flavor to your soup.
