As I write this, I’m Day 3 into a head cold. I’m full of snot, coughs and cloudy headedness. All I wanted was some darn chicken noodle soup. A delicious low carb chicken soup with noodles. I’ve seen great interpretations of this before on r/keto and here is what I threw together tonight.
Again, I’m sick so I took EVERY SHORTCUT IMAGINABLE because otherwise, I would have eaten a few spoonfuls of almond butter and called it a night. But my body deserves better than that, so I mustered up the energy as detailed below.
For example, I got a store bought, pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. You know the ones I’m talking about – all major grocery stores have those nice piping-hot cooked whole chickens. Make sure to grab an herb/butter one (NOT one with BBQ sauce on it). These things taste consistently amazing across any grocery store I have gone to and are roughly the same price as a raw chicken. Save yourself the time and effort of chicken-prep, especially if you are not feeling well.
Interestingly enough, this soup tasted even better the next day. WOO!

Are you sure the pictures are of your soup. Those are regular egg noodles I see in the picture. I think the spaghetti squash noodles would probably be OK but let’s see a pic of the real deal.
I’m 100% sure those are the pictures of my soup – my friend took pics of me while I was cooking. Definitely no egg noodles – just all the ingredients listed!

Looks delish! Thank you for sharing! I’d never thought to use spaghetti squash in a soup.
Spaghetti squash is so fantastically flexible and nommmmyyyy
Holy cow. I wanted something warm and comfy tonight so I made this with what I had — I used zucchini noodles and baked a couple chicken breasts, and left out the celery. It’s SO delicious, thanks for the recipe !
YAY So glad to hear it was tasty for you. I love zucchini noodles. They also taste great with pesto. MEOW!
