Low-Carb Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 stalks celery diced
- 2 carrots peeled and diced (can omit for strict keto)
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- Pink salt
- Freshly cracked black pepper
- 1/4 cup dry white wine like a Pinot Grigio (optional)
- 8 cups chicken bone broth I use Kettle and Fire
- 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 12 ounce package Palmini low carb rice, rinsed
- Zest of 2 lemons
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup fresh tarragon leaves chopped
- In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the celery and carrots, and saute until just tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic and onion powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
- Deglaze with the wine, and then add in the stock, bay leaves, and thyme. Add in the chicken, bring to a simmer and cook until the chicken is cooked through - about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the chicken and let it cool a bit. Keep the broth on a low simmer.
- Add the rinsed Palmini rice and continue cooking until the rice is hot.
- Check the seasoning of the broth and add salt or pepper if needed and remove the thyme and bay leaves.
- Shred the cooled chicken and return to the pot along with the pasta, lemon zest, juice, and tarragon leaves.
