Low Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup Meal In A Jar Recipe And Video

Low Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup Meal In A Jar Recipe www.HealthyEasyFood.com

It seems like everyone around me is coughing and sneezing and even worse...saying they have the flu. There isn't a more comforting food like Chicken Noodle Soup when you're sick.

Most people reach for a can of soup but let's be real. The cans are full of sodium, preservatives and really not much chicken. The last can I had I think had 3 pieces of chicken. Sad.

The other alternative is when you're feeling awful is to make Chicken Noodle Soup from scratch. I don't know about you but that is the last thing on my mind. Just the thought of going to buy chicken (or thawing it out), cleaning it, cutting and cooking just makes me tired and I'm not even sick. Then you need to chop the vegetables which is another big fail.

Never fear! I have the easiest solution for you and the best part is that you can have these already made and waiting for you to pull out of your pantry or food storage area! In walks Chicken Noodle Soup Meal In A Jar! I can hear the applause.

As you'll see in the video, I made a few tweaks to the recipe and made this Chicken Noodle Soup low sodium. If you want the regular sodium version, I have that available as well. 

We're using Thrive Life foods in this video. I like to say...once you go Thrive, you won't go back! lol

They are super convenient and no waste. Plus you can make easy Meal In A Jar recipes to have on hand and take the worry out of the question...What's for dinner?

  • 2 T. Thrive Chicken Bouillon (I use the sodium free chicken bouillon here)

Shopping List

Makes 10-12 quart jars

Add these items to your monthly delivery and you should be able to make 10-11 jars worth of meals.  Sometimes the product settles and you won't get a full 11 cups out of a #10 can or certain ingredients have a few less servings.  I'd rather have you plan to have some extras than be sad about not having enough!

*Feel free to grab a #10 can instead as it's more cost effective, then you will have some leftovers to try in other recipes! If you're doing pint size jars, you'll have extra to make more jars!

Remember feel free to customize your delivery if you already have some of these items on hand or want to substitute a different product or brand. Delivery is where you will save money and be able to shop the monthly specials. Also make sure to adjust your delivery each month for the new recipe so you don’t get sent the same items again!

Notes:

  1. In the video I tried to show the Thrive chopped onions vs. the Thrive onion slices. For a more detailed look at the difference, I have a blog post here. I like to keep both on hand and use them interchangeably.
  2. The carrots from Thrive are dehydrated. They take a little longer to cook. Just check the carrots tenderness and that is why I say 25-30 minute cooking time. It definitely can be sooner than that.
  3. The no sodium chicken bouillon I am referring to is called Herb-ox. I buy it here from Amazon. They have a few different versions and also have a sodium free beef bouillon. 
  4. I'm using Thrive Salad Seasoning Blend instead of the Thrive Chef's Choice Blend for this recipe. If you're going low sodium, choose the Salad Seasoning Blend. You can always choose to add salt after cooking.
  5. The funnel that I'm using also came from Amazon and you can buy it here. It makes Meal In A Jar recipes so convenient. I tried it before I had the funnel and it was pretty messy unless I added the ingredients a lot slower. I like to do production with my Meal In A Jar recipes and this keeps you going nice and fast!
  6. Amazon also has a lot of varieties of mason jars! I'm using the pint size jar but you can also make this recipe in our Quart size jar.
  7. Regarding the egg noodles. To use the whole cup or two depending on which size you're making, it does require you to break up the egg noodles a bit to fit them in. I just add as much as I can and then toss in extra when I'm making the Chicken Noodle Soup. I definitely love extra noodles!
  8. I chose to use Thrive peas instead of Thrive celery. You can use just peas, just celery or even do half and half! 
  9. We are using the Thrive chopped chicken. This is the low sodium option but I suggest using it even if you aren't going low sodium. This gives you smaller pieces of chicken and easier to eat in soup.
