As I said on my first post of the year ,I will spend a lot of focus on healthy eating and sharing the health benefits of the food we eat too! This unbelievably easy Healthy Detox Chicken Zoodle Soup is full of flavor from chicken, zucchini, carrots and parsnips. Add in ginger and some herbs and this soup is year round comfort food filled with antioxidants!
Some of the Many Benefits of Healthy Detox Chicken Zoodle Soup:
- Chicken is low in both cholesterol and saturated fats. High in protein and Vitamin B3 which converts carbs to energy!
- Zucchini is loaded with antioxidants which can deter cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease. A great anti-inflammatory!
- I must add, zucchini high in water so you can feel fuller after eating, which aids in weight loss.
- Parsnips are another awesome weight reducer veggie that is full of nutrients!
- Carrots, reduces risks of strokes, cleanses the body and of course vision
- Ginger, fixes everything,lol! Fights colds, detox the body, strengthen bones, reduce cramping…I could go on and on!
My Healthy Detox Chicken Zoodle Soup is both comfort and healthy! The zoodles, coodles, and poodles, (spiralized zucchini, carrots and parsnips. Spiralizing veggie names are funny) are so delish! Trust me, you will not miss the carbs from the noodles or rice. My sons are traditional Chicken Noodle Soup guys and they request version all the time! The ginger and veggies are so good for helping to feel better when the flu is in the house! Ginger, is my go to when anyone is feeling they need detox. Thus, my very popular Detox Lemon Ginger Green Tea and Detox Blueberry Lemon Ginger Iced Tea!

Healthy Detox Chicken Zoodle Soup
The best Chicken Zoodle Soup to eat any day! Perfect on those days when you are feeling a cold/flu coming on. Great when you just want a bowl of comfort! Full of chicken and spiralized zucchini, parsnips and carrots! Ginger adds even more antioxidants! Enjoy! Quick and easy meal to cure-all!
- 1 large green zucchini
- 1 medium yellow zucchini
- 1 large carrot
- 3 green onions, diced
- 6 cups fat-free chicken stock or homemade
- 2 cups cooked shredded chicken breasts
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 bay leaf
- salt, to taste
- 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley
Wash the zucchini,parsnips and carrots. Cut the tops off the veggies and discard(see notes). Peel the carrots and parsnips (discard the skin -see note). Spiralize the zucchinis, parsnip and carrot. Cut the end off the green onion, discard the end piece( see note below) Feel free to cut the veggies if pieces are too long. Set veggies aside.
In a large Dutch Oven or soup pot over medium heat add the fat-free chicken stock bring to a boil. Add in the spiralized veggies, green onion, shredded chicken, ground ginger, basil, oregano, thyme, black pepper and bay leaf. Add salt at your discretion.
Cover pot and let simmer about 15 minutes. I prefer my veggies al dente. If you like very soft veggies, let them simmer another 5 minutes.
Check the seasoning and adjust if needed. Discard the bay leaf. I prefer to distribute the veggies and chicken into the bowls and add the broth. Enjoy.
- Any veggie extras, gather in a freezer bag and keepin the freezer until you have enough to make homemade vegetable or chicken stock.
- This soup freezes really well. I always double or triple the recipe for a ready made freezer meal.
- I make quart bags of the soup to have on hand that can be reheated quickly at a later date
- Any nutritional data I provide is an approximation and actual dietary information can vary based on ingredients and portion sizes
