Herby Chicken Courgette Noodle Soup

There’s nothing quite like a warming bowl of chicken soup to make you feel a thousand times better. I used leftover roast chicken here and spiralized some courgette noodles which you can do with a julienne peeler or a regular peeler too.  If you’re after a veggie meal, simply swap the chicken for some mushrooms!


  1. Gently fry the onion in a large saucepan for 5 minutes, stirring from time to time.
  2. Add the garlic for a final minute.
  3. Add the broth, carrots and dried herbs and bring to the boil then straight away turn down to a medium heat to simmer until the carrots are tender, about 12 minutes. Use the time to turn the courgettes into noodles with a peeler or spiralizer.
  4. Turn up the heat and add the shredded chicken to the pan along with the courgette noodles to heat through for 1 minute then take off the heat, taste for seasoning, stir through the parsley and serve up with the toppings of your choice.
