I've always made chicken soup with pasta, orzo, or rice. I have a cold and was craving chicken soup, but without the extra carbs. I made it without a starch and it was delicious!

1 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

3 large carrots, or 5 medium ones, sliced thinnly

2 large celery ribs, or 3 small ones, sliced thinnly

3 cloves garlic

2 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp dried crushed rosemary

1 cup white wine

Meat from 1 cooked whole rotisserie chicken, shredded, no skin or fatty bits (about 6-7 cups). Easiest to pick clean when still warm from the store.

2 32oz boxes of chicken stock

salt and pepper to taste

Juice of 1 lemon

Saute onion, carrots, and celery olive oil. When onions are translucent add garlic, thyme, and rosemary and saute a minute. Add white wine and cook for 5 minutes. Add shredded chicken and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and add juice of one lemon. Let soup pot sit off heat for 10-15 minutes before serving (tip I learned to keep you from burning your mouth).

I don't even miss the pasta or rice!

Sounds delicious! I generally replace rice with riced cauliflower - works out great.

I won't have any problem preparing one of this.

This dish is easy to prepare and very healthy as well. I would love to indulge in it during a cold afternoon.
