Quick & Easy Chicken Zucchini Noodle Soup

Over the past three weeks I have traveled to Philadelphia, Vero Beach, Orlando, back to
Philadelphia and then New Orleans.  That is a lot of travel, especially for me! 

Some of the travel was for fun (which I will tell you about soon) and we had a blast, but
it's so nice to be home again! 

After quite a few not-so-healthy meals on the road, I want to get back on track with clean,
healthy eating again.  The OXO Good Grips Spiralizer helps me do just that by creating  
noodles from zucchini, carrots, beets, potatoes and more.  

Included with the OXO Spiralizer are three stainless steel blades that create spaghetti, 
fettuccine or ribbon cut noodles.  A few months ago I made Sweet Potato Puttanesca with 
sweet potato noodles and after that I was hooked on spiralizing!  

The stronghold suction cup helps to keep the spiralizer stable on the counter top, creating
vegetable noodles in just minutes.  

Since soup is one of my favorite meals I decided to make chicken zucchini noodle soup
to have on hand for a quick and healthy lunch to take to work.  I used a grocery store
rotisserie chicken, which helped this recipe come together in less than 30 minutes.  
I love quick and easy recipes!

This soup is so delicious you won't even miss pasta!  

Quick & Easy Chicken Zucchini Noodle Soup

small onion, diced
1 T extra virgin olive oil
2 carrots, diced
2 celery ribs, diced
2 bay leaves
1 medium zucchini
2 C shredded cooked chicken (I used a Rotisserie chicken)
32 oz. container chicken broth
salt and pepper

Using the OXO Good Grips Spiralizer, spiralize the zucchini into noodles, 
set aside. 
Place a large soup pot over medium heat.  Drizzle olive oil in pan and sauté
onion, celery and carrots until tender.  Add the chicken broth, bay leaves, salt
and pepper and bring to a boil.  Add shredded chicken and zucchini noodles.
Reduce heat to low and simmer until zucchini is al dente.  Remove bay leaves.
Serve warm.

Disclosure:  I received a Good Grips Spiralizer from OXO to facilitate this post.
