  • Author: Lindsay Cotter
  • Total Time: 1 hour 55 minutes
  • Yield: 4-5 servings 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


This Gluten-Free Chicken Noodle Soup uses simple, pantry staple ingredients for the ultimate family-friendly comfort food! Dairy-Free-Friendly.


Units Scale
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons butter or light olive oil, divided
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion or 1 small yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 pound skinless chicken breast (see notes for precooked option)
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 2 cups water plus equivalent bouillon (vegetable broth can be substituted)
  • 2 to 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut aminos or gluten-free tamari
  • 1/2 Tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 to 12 ounces gluten-free noodles (see notes)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, optional
  • Garnish – chopped parsley


  1. Melt 1 Tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and celery and sauté until fragrant and onion is softened or about 3 minutes. Transfer the onion, garlic, and celery to the crockpot.


Cooking Tips – Do not leave the gluten-free noodles/pasta in the crockpot too long as they can become mushy depending on the type of pasta. Another option would be to cook the pasta separately and add it to the crockpot the last 5 minutes of cooking on LOW. Using bouillon adds more depth of flavor to the soup than using only chicken or vegetable broth.

We prefer to use DeLallo gluten-free noodles as they hold up well.
