Chicken Zoodle Soup Recipe by The Wonky Spatula

This recipe is one of my favourite things to race home to, grab a big woolly blanket and cosy up on the couch with during colder months. Prepare the broth ahead of time and add in your zoodles as needed, for comfort in a bowl any time of the day!

Serves: 3–4

For the broth:

3 chicken thighs, skinned
3/4 of a carrot, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, peeled and chopped
2 stalks of celery, roughly chopped
1 handful of fresh parsley
1 handful of fresh thyme
2 cups of water – just enough to cover the vegetables Coarse sea salt and cracked black pepper

For the zoodles:

1/4 of a carrot, peeled
1/2 a sweet potato, peeled
2 large courgettes / zucchinis All spiralized!

Small handful of fresh coriander to garnish


  1. Add all of the broth ingredients to a large pot and season well.
  2. Bring to the boil over a high heat, reduce the heat and simmer for 30–40 minutes with the lid on, until the chicken has cooked through.
  3. Once the broth has finished cooking, remove the chicken and set aside, before straining the remainder of the mixture and discarding the vegetables.
  4. Bring the broth to the boil and simmer for a further 5–10 minutes to enhance the flavour.
  5. Once you are ready to serve your soup, tear the chicken away from the bones, add into the broth and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the carrot and sweet potato and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
  7. Turn off the hob, add the zoodles and leave to stand for 3–5 minutes with the lid on.
  8. Garnish with coriander and enjoy snuggled up on the couch with a woolly blanket! The perfect way to relax after a busy day!
