A hearty and delicious dairy-free and gluten-free Classic Chicken Noodle Soup that will bring you warmth and comfort.
Place the olive oil in a large Dutch Oven or stock pot and heat on medium high heat until hot but not smoking.
Add the garlic and saute until fragrant - about 2 minutes.
Pour the chicken broth into the Dutch oven and add the chicken breast.
Bring pot to a simmer and cover with a lid.
Cook the chicken until cooked through and tender - about 20 minutes.
Remove the chicken breast, shred between two forks, and set aside.
Add in 1/2 lb of uncooked brown rice pasta noodles or chickpea noodles and add more water or chicken broth to cover if needed.
Cook the pasta according to pasta directions until al dente.
Once the pasta is cooked, add the shredded chicken back in along with the ghee, salt, and pepper.
Stir to combine and until the ghee is melted.
Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.
Serve hot and enjoy!
If using fresh, uncooked vegetables or frozen vegetables, add them into the broth when cooking the chicken. This will allow the veggies to cook and become tender.
If using cooked and canned veggies, stir them into the soup in the final step and allow to heat through before serving the soup.

Time Saving Tip: If you're strapped for time, use 2 cups of cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken instead of boiling your own. While cooking your own chicken makes the broth more nutrient-dense, you can shave off 20 minutes from the cook time by using already cooked chicken.
