We love soup in our family, all year round. It is so warm and comforting. I love that we can make something healthy that tastes so good. This chicken zoodle soup is my take on the classic chicken noodle version I've always loved. It's simple but flavorful and has a lovely lemony kick.
One of the best parts about this recipe is that the Instant Pot does all the work! It can cook the soup so quickly but it tastes like it has been simmering on the stove all day. I use the saute function to start the veggies and then add in the broth and chicken. It is so easy and the chicken just shreds perfectly.
This recipe is already super low in WW SmartPoints, so you could use noodles if you prefer and still keep it low in points. I like to cook the noodles separately and stir them into the bowl with the soup. This is how my kids eat it and they love it.
How to Store/Freeze the Soup:
This soup is perfect for meal prep for the week or as a freezer meal! To store in the fridge for the week, let the soup cool and store in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days. Keep the zucchini separate until ready to serve.
To freeze the soup, let it cool completely and then fill an airtight container ¾ of the way full (it will need room to expand as it freezes). Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, let thaw in the fridge and heat on the stove top.
