Slow Cooker Keto Chicken Noodle Soup

I almost always run to my slow cooker when making a homemade soup from scratch. The dump and cook method of crockpot recipes appeals to me a lot because as much as I love cooking, it’s nice to take a break and have dinner cook itself once in a while.

Zucchini noodles are my answer to the question about noodles in chicken soup on a keto diet. Veggie noodles are fun, colorful, and low in carbs.

Skip the high-carb pasta and use “zoodles,” or zucchini noodles, instead. Not only are zoodles gluten-free, but they have a fraction of the carbs too. Per one-half cup of zucchini, there is only 1.5 g net carb! (1) That makes them the perfect add-in for this slow cooker keto chicken soup.

How to Make a Keto Friendly Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Now it’s time to gather all the ingredients you need and prep this chicken soup with noodles in just 10 minutes!

Ingredients

Chicken breast – Breast is best for shredding because it gives long soft pieces of meat. However, you can substitute with chicken thigh if needed. Most people will probably prefer cooking with skinless boneless meat. I recommend organic chicken breast from White Oak Pastures.

Low-carb vegetables – Onion, garlic, celery, and carrot are classic ingredients for chicken soup, and we don’t want to leave them out! Coarsely chop or dice everything up, then add it to the pot.

Chicken broth – Chicken zoodle soup with bone broth is the best way to go! You can also substitute with stock or regular broth, but the final result isn’t as flavorful. I recommend stocking up on this Kettle & Fire bone broth. Read my Kettle & Fire bone broth review to find out why.

Apple cider vinegar – Here’s the secret ingredient. There are only two tablespoons, but that is all you need to get a delicious tang and sweetness throughout the entire soup.

Herbs – Parsley and rosemary set this soup right. We’ll also add a pinch of salt and pepper for seasoning.

Zucchini – How can you make keto chicken soup with zucchini noodles without the zucchini? This is my top choice for vegetable noodles because it spiralizes into beautiful long noodles the whole family will love.

Low-Carb Chicken Soup FAQ

You might be asking these same common questions, so let me clarify!

Is Campbell’s chicken noodle soup keto?

Campbell’s has multiple types of chicken noodle soup, but none of them are keto-friendly, so don’t eat them on a keto diet. Confirm this by checking the ingredient list before buying. Return the can back to the shelf as soon as you see enriched flour and modified starch products on the label. (2, 3)

Can you eat chicken noodle soup on keto?

Yes, you can eat chicken noodle soup on keto! However, don’t run out and buy a can. This recipe with zucchini noodles is a healthy low-carb chicken soup you can enjoy as much as you like, but store-bought varieties are not. Avoid traditional noodle soups on a keto diet. (4, 5)

Can I freeze chicken zoodle soup?

This is a great freezer meal. There are two ways to go about freezing it. First, let it cool completely and then pour into a freezer-safe bag or storage container. Lay the bag flat on a tray and place in the freezer until solid. Then, remove the tray and store the bag upright or flat for up to 3 months. Reheat the soup in a pot on the stovetop after thawing in the fridge the night before or pulling it out directly before cooking.

If you’re concerned about the noodles becoming soft and mushy after freezing, I have another freezing method. Instead of cooking the noodles now, wait until the day you’re ready to serve the soup and freeze the base without them. Then, you can reheat the frozen soup in a slow cooker and add fresh spiraled noodles to cook in the pot at the same time.

What to Serve with Slow Cooker Chicken Soup?

Serve this dish as a side to your main entree or as a complete one-pot meal. It will always be a welcome dish when you need something to warm you up during the cold fall and winter months.

I think keto slow cooker dinners always pair well with crusty bread because I love having something to soak up the juices, or in this case, the broth. I like this psyllium husk keto bread, but keto biscuits are another family-friendly option.

Consider your macros and garnish with diced avocado or cauliflower rice and butter if you need additional fats. You can slather extra butter on your bread too!

    I love this recipe! I made it in my Crock-Pot and it came out delicious. It was also super easy to make—just throw everything into the slow cooker and let it cook for a few hours. The chicken breast is really tender, and the veggies are just perfect. I especially loved the zucchini because it added such a great flavor to the soup.
