This low carb soup is great when you are trying to watch your carb intake. If you like noodles in your soup as well, add them in. But the great thing about this recipe is that you will not miss the noodles. Honestly! There are so many veggies in this soup that it is very filling.

My kids are not the biggest fans of veggies, so I chop up the vegetables in this recipe pretty small.
There is a lot of chopping involved in this recipe, so it is a great one to get some help with. If you have a spouse or significant other, put him to work! I like to have all the veggies chopped beforehand so I can just throw everything in a pot before it is time to make it.
Since this recipe will cook for an hour, you can use thawed chopped chicken. I would not recommend frozen chicken.
Throw everything in a large stockpot and you are good to go.
You will have leftover soup, which makes a great lunch the next day. I like to send the leftovers to work with hubby.
This soup is also great to make when a cold or illness hits your household. What is more comforting than chicken soup?
