Chicken Noodle Soup with Rosemary and Ginger

December is the perfect month for delicious soups, (even if you live in Hawaii!) And what is more comforting than a steamy bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup?

To be completely honest, chicken noodle soup is not normally a soup that I find myself craving. I think it comes from the fact that I can still remember my mom bringing a tray to my room with a bowl of chicken noodle soup on it whenever I was sick as a child. While I cherish that sweet memory of my mom and how well she cared for us when we were under the weather, to this day I simply associate feeling sick with eating chicken noodle soup. Kind of like how I can’t stand saltine crackers because that’s all I could eat for the first 18 weeks of my pregnancy with Caroline. I literally carried a sleeve of those crackers around with me wherever I went! Flash forward 3 months post-pregnancy, and I want absolutely nothing to do with those things!

THIS soup, however, is a far cry from the chicken noodle soups that nursed me back to health as a little girl. This soup is seasoned with fresh rosemary and ginger, giving it a wonderful balance of flavors. No bland soup here! You’ll find yourself constantly checking the clock until dinner because it smells amazing, too. Oh yeah, did I mention it cooks ITSELF in the crock pot? More betta!

Get started by chopping up an onion, a couple ribs of celery, and some carrots. Also slice two thin “coins” of fresh ginger and peel.

Place your chopped veggies, ginger, and 2 sprigs of rosemary into the bowl of your crock pot. Top with 8 chicken thighs and season the meat with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a little poultry seasoning. Pour chicken broth over the top then cover and set on low for 6-8 hours.

After many hours of smelling this yummy soup, remove the chicken from pot and shred with two forks. Add it back in along with 2 cups of dry egg noodles. Turn to high for 20-30 minutes until noodles are cooked. Make sure to remove rosemary “sticks” when serving!

      Oooo! Let me know how it turns out with the zucchini noodles! I made spaghetti with zucchini noodles a couple weeks ago and it was really good! Love that you made it paleo friendly. :)
