Chicken Soup with Bone Broth

Bone Broth Benefits

It’s not an exaggeration to say that bone broth is popular – especially among health enthusiasts. And there are good reasons for this:

  • Bone broth is rich in collagen and gelatin – proteins that play a crucial role in skin, joint and connective tissue health. They can also help keep your GI tract lining healthy.
  • Bone broth is rich in minerals and B vitamins which leech into the liquid when bones are cooked for a long time. This helps keep the body’s biochemistry humming, including fighting inflammation, improving mood and supporting immune function.
  • Bone broth is easy to digest – gentle and nourishing, especially for those with digestive sensitivities.

It’s important to note that while bone broth can be a nutritious addition to a balanced diet and an aid in an acute situation such as illness and trauma, it’s not a cure-all and should be avoided by people with histamine overload.

The overall quality of the ingredients is key here. The chicken should be pasture-raised, organic and heritage if possible – otherwise, along with the beneficial compounds, your broth will contain pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals which detract from health. The vegetables, herbs and spices should be organic as well.

If you are looking for an easy way to make this at home, here is one of my favorite recipes:

Gluten-Free Chicken Noodle Bone Broth Soup

Gluten-Free Chicken Noodle Bone Broth Soup

Total Time: 20 min prep time; 4-6 hours total

8-10 servings


  • 1 whole chicken or chicken parts (you need the bones/connective tissues; don’t buy filets)
  • 2 carrots, chopped + 4 for cooking
  • 2 parsnips, chopped + 4 for cooking
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped + 6 for cooking
  • 1 onion, diced + 2 for cooking
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch parsley, 1 bunch dill
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
  • Sea Salt, Pepper
  • Turmeric, Ginger & Cumin (optional)
  • Gluten-free noodles of your choice (I like organic quinoa brown rice noodles from Trader Joe’s).


  • Place the whole chicken in a large pot and cover it with water. Add the whole carrots, parsnips, celery, onion, minced garlic, bay leaf, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  • Bring the pot to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for at least 4 hours, allowing the flavors to meld and the chicken to become tender. Skim off any foam that rises to the surface.
  • Once the broth is rich and flavorful, remove whole vegetables – onion, carrot, parsnip, celery and bay leaf; discard.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot and shred the meat. Discard the bones and return the shredded chicken to the pot.
  • Add chopped vegetables and whole bunches of washed dill and parsley. Cook for 20 minutes on a low boil. Remove and discard the herbs.
  • Cook the gluten-free noodles separately according to package instructions. Add them to the soup.
  • Adjust seasoning if needed and garnish with fresh chopped parsley before serving.

If you don’t have 4-6 hours to make bone broth, please seek out Pressure Cooker / InstantPot bone broth recipes.

If you strain the broth after cooking, you can use the liquid as a base for cooking rice, vegetables, stews and soups. A great way to add nutrition to your food!

I recommend that you make a bunch and freeze it in glass containers for up to 4 months. It’s always ready if anyone in your family gets sick! 

This hearty and nourishing gluten-free chicken noodle bone broth soup is a comforting dish perfect for any time of the year – but especially during the cold winter months. Enjoy the warmth and goodness in each spoonful!

Here’s to delicious and nutritious food.
