Whenever soup season arrives, the first gut health soup recipe I reach for in my recipe index is my gut healing chicken soup recipe. The nourishing ingredients of my gut healthy chicken soup are better than opening up a can of sodium and preservative filled canned soup.
As the weather begins to drop, we spend more times in doors. Making homemade gut healing chicken soup is one way I love to spend my Sundays. Having a delicious bowl of hot gut healing soup warms my soul too.
This was inspired by my other gut healing parsnip soup recipe. They both pair well with a delicious piece of gluten-free bread or nourishing salad. Be sure to check out my 7 Best, Healthy Soup Recipes.

🥣 Gut Healing Chicken Soup Ingredients
To make this gut healing chicken soup, you will simply need to gather a few key ingredients that create the most delicious tasting gut health soup you have ever made.
I like to use my one chicken bone broth recipe. Bone broth is excellent to help heal intestinal permeability, otherwise known as leaky gut. The collagen helps decrease inflammation, but also nourish the lining of the intestines.
Turmeric is an impressive spice I love to cook with for the anti-inflammatory benefits. The active substance is curcumin, which helps lower inflammation within the body. Turmeric is also beneficial in boosting skin health. It can help decrease acne and scarring.
Ginger has been shown to help reduce inflammation, especially in those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. It is terrific at reducing nausea and upset stomach. Studies have also shown ginger has protective effects against stomach ulcers
Fresh minced garlic is perfect to evenly distribute that delicious garlic flavor. Ginger and garlic have long been hailed for their incredible health benefits, particularly when it comes to supporting gut health and balancing hormones.
This is a necessary spice to give the recipe that authentic old school chicken soup flavor. Don't leave it out. Trust me.
To make things easier, I like to use shredded rotisserie chicken. However, if you can prepare 2 chicken breasts in advance and shred them to add to the gut healthy chicken soup recipe.
I prefer gluten-free egg noodles, but feel free to use any gluten-free pasta of your choice.
Please don't leave out the carrots, because they add a natural sweetness to the soup that pairs well in this gut health soup recipe.
What chicken soup recipe doesn't have some celery? It adds that natural salt flavor.
I like cremini mushrooms for this chicken soup recipe. However, you can swap with any mushrooms you may have on hand.
I always add as many veggies as possible, and this zucchini has lots of vitamins and minerals. So, I highly recommend you add zucchini to all your recipes.
This hearty fall and winter vegetable is great for gut health, because it has been shown to have beneficial effects on the gut microbiome due to increasing bacterial biodiversity, and plays a key role in reducing inflammation.
In addition, this cruciferous vegetable is high in vitamin C, which promotes collagen synthesis. In addition, vitamin C rich kale helps protect the skin’s barrier to lock in moisture and alleviate dry skin issues.

👩🍳 How To Make a Gut Health Chicken Soup
Here's how easy it is to make a delicious fall or winter gut healthy chicken soup recipe. It's as simple as gathering your ingredients and throwing them into a soup pot.
To a large pot, add the olive oil, onions, and celery, and heat over medium-high heat about 8 to 10 minutes until they turn translucent.
Add the garlic and stir for another minute. Add the bone broth, thyme, ginger, turmeric, black pepper, and bring to a boil. Stir in the carrots, mushrooms, kale, and zucchini. Allow soup to boil gently for about 10 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked tender.
Next, add the gluten-free egg noodles or pasta of choice, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until noodles are soft and cooked through.
Take Note: If you use a smaller pasta shape, the noodles will cook quicker. Cook the noodles according to the time on the package you are using.
Add the cooked chicken and gently warm for 5 minutes. Serve with fresh parsley, red pepper flakes, and adjust the salt to your liking. I like to finish with a splash of fresh lemon juice right on top.

My gut healing chicken soup is great stored for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Cool the soup first, and then transfer to an airtight storage container in the fridge.
I like to make big batches of this gut healthy chicken soup and store it in the freezer for 3 months. The perfect meal prep dinner or lunch idea. Simply reheat on the stove or microwave, and then serve on those chilly winter evenings.
