I always have a batch of chicken soup in the freezer. Whenever I have a leftover rotisserie chicken from the grocery store (or after cooking a whole chicken) I make a homemade broth, toss some vegetables in it and freeze it.
Trust me, it’s heaven-sent when you’re sick and have no energy to make food for yourself or the family.
I love having soothing soup on hand for those reasons. I swear it makes the world of difference during the winter months when the cold and flu season crush my household (thanks school).

Making zoodles (zucchini noodles) is easy! All you need is a spiralizer. I currently have this attachment for my food processor but here are a few spiralizers you can grab from Amazon:
The funny thing is, I’m not even a big fan of zucchini or zucchini noodles. I try to like it, I want to like it, but it’s the squash taste that throws me off most off the time.
That being said, this soup is delicious. My husband, myself, and my son loved it.
I’m a big picky eater, not to mention my child so when we both approve of something – you can trust it’s a win.
