Fast & Easy Chicken Noodle Soup To Heal Your Gut
ByKatarina Meister, ND •January 9, 2023
Here is an easy recipe to add to your weekly routine to help improve your gut health and increase diversity in your microbiome. Unlike traditional chicken noodle soup, this recipe features anti-inflammatory spices turmeric, and ginger. Ginger also acts as a warming digestive stimulant, promoting regular bowel movements and reducing gas. Other added benefits of this soup include its antimicrobial properties from Thyme and Garlic, that work to help the body destroy or resist pathogenic microorganisms. As well as it is rich in fiber, which promotes healthy bacteria to grow and thrive. Finally, the Bone broth is rich in L-Glutamine, an amino acid that helps to heal the lining of the intestine and heal a leaky gut.

- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast (organic pasture-raised) or sub with 3 cups of rotisserie chicken
- 1 carton (32oz) of organic Chicken Stock
- 1 carton (32oz) Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth
- 1 cup Gluten Free Brown Rice Fusilli
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil or Ghee
- 1 large white or yellow onion, diced (I used a red onion since that was all I had, which works too!)
- 1 can Garbanzo beans
- 3-5 stalks of celery, chopped
- 3-5 tricolor carrots, diced (purple, yellow, orange)
- 1-2 Tbsp garlic, minced (Add more garlic for more antimicrobial properties, avoid with SIBO)
- 1 Tbsp Thyme, dried or fresh
- 1/2 Tbsp Turmeric, powder
- 1/2 Tbsp Ginger, powder
- Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Total Cook Time: 30mins (or less if using cooked rotisserie chicken)
- Add olive oil, diced celery, carrots, and onion to the pot over medium-high heat. Saute for 3 minutes. Add garlic and spices (thyme, turmeric, ginger, salt, and pepper) and cook for another minute.
- Add chicken stock, chicken bone broth, and raw chicken to the pot and bring broth to a boil. Then, cover and simmer for another 20 minutes.
- At the 14-minute mark remove the cooked chicken and dice, then return to the pot.
- At the 20-minute mark add noodles and cook until noodles are just barely tender to avoid overcooking them! (If using a rotisserie chicken, add it to the pot at this step.)
- Taste broth, and add more spices, if needed.
- Store leftovers in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. (Side note: I recommend cooking noodles separately if you plan to store soup in the freezer for later for freshness.)
