We all love the classic chicken noodle soup; sometimes we have way too much of it as we heal from a cold or flu, sometimes the day is just cold and dreary that the comfort of this classic meal is exactly what we crave … well, here is a healthy twist on our favorite chicken noodle soup!
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup diced onions
1 cup diced celery
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 (14.5 ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup sliced carrots
3/4 pound cooked chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pinch dried thyme (optional)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
3 zucchini squash, cut into ‘noodles’ using a spiral slicer or vegetable peeler

Directions
Prep – 20 minutes
Cook – 25 minutes
Ready In – 45 minutes

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion, celery, and garlic in hot oil until just tender, about 5 minutes.
Pour chicken broth into the pot; add carrots, chicken, basil, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer mixture until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
Divide zucchini ‘noodles’ between six soup bowls; ladle broth mixture over the ‘noodles.’
