Easy Grilled Chicken Soup

Autumn is officially here, and with that the start of cold and flu season.  How do you cope when you are feeling under the weather?

 I like to drink hot tea with honey and lemon, it really helps to sooth a sore throat.  My next go to is a nice bowl of steaming, hot soup. Of course, not to mention a pillow and soft, fluffy blanket helps too!

Today, I'm sharing with you an easy  gluten free recipe for chicken noodle soup. 

Easy Grilled Chicken Soup





There is nothing like a hot bowl of soup when you aren't feeling well.  A can of chicken noodle soup was always my go to, when I came down with something.  However, since going gluten free, I have not been able to find a gluten free can of soup for purchase.  So when I came down with a terrible cold a few weeks ago, I created this simple and easy recipe.






















Easy Grilled Chicken Soup




Ingredients:



1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Small sweet onion, chopped
Dash of sea salt
Black pepper, to taste
1/2 Cup coarsely chopped carrots
1 32oz carton of chicken stock, gluten free
1 1/4 Cups uncooked rotini, gluten free
1 Cup grilled chicken, cubed


Directions:

Heat medium sized soup pot.  Add olive oil to pot.  Once olive oil is heated, saute onion and carrots, seasoned with sea salt and black pepper, until tender.  Add chicken stock and bring to boil.  Once the stock is boiling, add uncooked rotini pasta, boil until pasta is cooked.  Turn down heat to a simmer, add grilled chicken to the pot.  Simmer soup for 30 minutes.  Serves 4.

Side Note:  You can add some minced garlic with the onions, if you like.  I used sweet baby carrots for this recipe, but any carrots will work fine.  If you make your own chicken stock you can use that in place of the carton, I purchased Swanson brand, marked gluten free.  I grilled my own chicken(seasoned with sea salt and black pepper), but you could buy the packaged pre-grilled that's sold in your grocers freezer isle (just be sure it's gluten free). 

This is a great soup when you aren't feeling well, because the flavors are mild.  If you want to kick this soup up a few notches, add some additional herbs and spices to your chicken at grill time!  What would you add?



Until next time...

With Aloha,

    1. Haha Scott, just the chicken is grilled. But I guess you could cook the pot of soup on a grill that has the side burners! Something to consider for our next camping trip.

    1. Yes, thank goodness! I love pasta and couldn't imagine not having gf ones available. The grilled chicken adds a nice flavor, plus I'm not big on boiled chicken.
