This Chicken Noodle Soup can be made in the Instant Pot or slow cooker!

Both ways are easy!

Most of the points in this recipe come from the noodles. I used 6 oz. of egg noodles. That was 17 points total for the noodles.

I used no yolk egg noodles. If you use a different type of noodle you will want to doublecheck the points.

It’s 4 points per serving for blue and purple, 5 points per serving for green. Each serving is approximately 2 cups, so they’re good sized servings.

Green is a little higher in points because chicken isn’t 0 points for green.

This chicken noodle soup is also great for meal prep. I think chicken noodle soup is even better the next day.

The noodles absorb the liquid and seasonings. They’re just so full of flavor the next day!

Recipes like chicken noodle soup tend to have a lot of the same ingredients. The basics like onion, carrots and celery.

I also like to add grated Parmesan cheese at the end. It gives the soup an extra kick of flavor. Kraft Parmesan cheese works great for this.

It only adds 2 points to the recipe. If you choose to leave it out it won’t change the total points per serving. So if you’re trying to save points it’s not even worth it. But if you don’t like Parmesan cheese you can definitely leave it out.

Chicken noodle soup is one soup I never get sick of. I’m definitely a soup lover and could eat it every day….even in the summer!
