How to make Healthy Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup with Rotisserie Chicken

Vegetables provide a soup taste and color, as well as vitamins and fiber that are good for the heart.

Our soup contains 5 cups of peas, carrots, celery, onions, and other vegetables, all of which contribute taste and fiber that can help you feel fuller for longer.

In a soup like this one, which is full of ingredients that complement whole-wheat noodles’ nutty flavor while also adding more fiber to your meal, whole-wheat noodles are a terrific option.

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans advise consuming no more than 10% of your daily calories from saturated fat.

By omitting the heavy cream that traditionally gives the creamy soup its silky texture and using whole milk instead, we keep saturated fat levels in check.

We continue to cook the vegetables in our soup in butter, but we also add olive oil, an unsaturated fat that may support heart health.

Although it is quick and delicious to use rotisserie chicken in the soup, it might be high in sodium.

According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, adults should consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily or about one teaspoon of salt.

We use unsalted chicken broth and only a small amount of kosher salt in our soup to limit the sodium content.
