Talk about a bowl of comfort! This soup is a special take on chicken and noodles, chicken and rice, chicken and … whatever else is out there. One of my grocery items I keep on me at all times is cauliflower rice. It’s a great low carb, get-in-your-veggies way to bulk up food. (It’s even great to thicken smoothies!)

For this recipe, I cooked an entire chicken in my Instant Pot via this method (but added 4 minutes to the cooking time as my bird was a 5 lb’r). It also made the most delicious chicken broth I was able to use for this soup. Obviously, you can use a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and store bought broth/stock. 🙂 Which ever is easy! Doing the Whole30? I’d say keep it as simple as you can.

This soup is so easy to make, reheats beautifully and is quite filling! -Definitely something I look forward to in a meal.
