Total Time2 hrs
Course: Lunch
Cuisine: Low Fodmap
Keyword: chicken soup, rice noodles
Servings: 6 people


  • 1 whole free-range chicken rinsed, giblets, wings, legs and skin discarded
  • 1 cup rice star noodles vermicelli or orzo
  • 3 big kale leaves chopped into small, bite-sized pieces
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • Pinch of salt
  • Fresh mint leaves for serving


For the Chicken Stock:

  • Place the chicken in a large pot over medium heat with enough water to cover the chicken and allow it to slowly come to a boil.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low and gently simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, partially covered, until the chicken is done. As it cooks, skim any impurities that rise to the surface; add a little more water if necessary to keep the chicken covered while simmering.
  • Carefully remove the chicken to a cutting board. When its cool enough to handle, discard the remaining skin and bones and hand-shred the meat.
  • Carefully strain the stock to remove any remaining solids.

For the Chicken Noodle Soup

  • In the same pot add the veggies and let them simmered in the broth for about 30 minutes.
  • Add the rice star noodles, shredded chicken, salt and let cook until done (normally 7 minutes).
  • Serve with mint leaves.


Normally a broth includes the chicken skin and also other veggies. I prefer this simplified version but feel free to use your own recipe or you can also use canned low-sodium chicken broth instead. If you are on a low FODMAP diet, be careful as it can have traces of onions and garlic.
