Chicken Meatball Zoodle Soup is the all-time classic soup you love...now with a low carb spin! Fresh ingredients, savory chicken meatballs combined with fresh zoodles... makes this the ultimate comfort soup!
I know it's Summer but I could eat soup anytime of year. This chicken meatball zoodle soup is so delicious and filling and so flavorful!
I adapted this delicious soup from Damn Delicious. I thought it looked so delicious (as all of her recipes do) but I wanted to make it more keto friendly.
This was an easy task! I simply replaced the breadcrumbs with almond flour in the meatballs and reduced some of the onion and carrot.
The chicken meatballs in the soup make it so interesting and give it so much more flavor. I really wouldn't skip the meatballs!
How to make the zucchini noodles
Zucchini noodles are really great in soup as they are usually watery. They give an extra healthy dose of veggies.
I use the Inspiralizer to make the zucchini noodles. It is by far the best zoodle maker out there!

This soup was delicious Jennlfer. I did use ground Turkey instead of chicken because that is what I had on hand. Very filling will definitely make again. Love your recipes have made many desserts. Making the cheddar and ham biscuits to go along with it this evening.

I tried this recipe but instead of making my own meatballs - I already had on hand some fresh Italian meatballs that I picked up at Aldi so I used them. It was great! The family loved it too. I will definitely make again !!
