Hearty Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup

Hello friends!
My name is Meghan, and I write and take pictures over at eat.live.make.
You can learn more about me  here and  here.

I am so excited to be sharing my first gluten free recipe with you all here on Sugar and Dots. 
I've had the brightest pleasure of being able to know Kimmie over the past couple of months, and she is just such a blessing to me, as I know she is to you!!

So, this month's recipe is going to be a bit different than most recipes I'll be sharing- in that it has chicken!
Around here, we normally eat vegan meals, but sometimes when you are sick your body really needs good bone broths (the marrow from the bones is great for restoration of gut flora) and rich protein chicken provides. 
This time of the year sickness spreads like a wildfire, so I wanted to share a hearty soup that will warm your spirits and your insides!
It is a lot cheaper to make your own chicken noodle soup than buying canned soups, and you can control what goes inside your body. 

Here's what you'll need:
  •  2 packs organic gluten free chicken stock, OR you can find out how to make your own broth here.
  • 1 free range organic chicken breast
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 tsp rosemary
  • 2 packs gluten free noodles 
  • organic sea salt to taste
Here's how you do it:
  1. Turn oven on to 425.
  2. Chop carrots and onion and place on roasting sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary. Roast for about 15-20 minutes. 
  3. Start boiling water for your noodles and chicken. 
  4. Cook according to package directions. You can leave them a little underdone because you'll be adding them to your broth in a crockpot in a bit. 
  5. Place chicken in boiling water until cooked. 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through. After it is cooked, cut into small pieces with scissors or knife. 
  6. Get out your crockpot (if you don't have a crockpot, you can use a large stockpot). And place chicken stock and remaining ingredients into the crockpot. Let cook for about 30 minutes until you serve. 
        **note that when you use gluten free noodles, they like to absorb broth more than regular noodles!   
            You may need to add water to your soup if you store it for a couple of days:).


  1. We're not gluten free in my household, but I can always appreciate a good soup recipe!
