Greek Chicken Zoodle Soup with Dill

This version of avgolemono soup—the classic Greek lemon soup with egg broth—is simmered with fennel, zoodles, and shredded chicken and from my friend Phoebe Lapine’s new book, SIBO Made Simple

Greek Chicken Zoodle Soup with Dill

First off, a big congratulations to my friend Phoebe Lapine, who just published (last week!) her latest book, SIBO Made Simple: 90 Healing Recipes and Practical Strategies to Rebalance Your Gut for Good. Bravo to her for breaking through the confusion and stigmas of auto-immune diseases and speaking up with life-changing resources that she’s spent years working on.

Greek Chicken Zoodle Soup with Dill

If you struggle with SIBO (for those of you who are wondering what that is – as I did – it stands for ‘small intestinal bacterial overgrowth’ and is a pretty debilitating illness, if not treated properly.) In Phoebe’s book, she covers every nook and cranny and offers accessible, approachable, and valuable strategies to help treat SIBO.

My favorite part of this book? The recipes! As someone who luckily doesn’t struggle with SIBO (although I have friends who do and they’ve now purchased this book!) I flipped to the recipe section and was blown away by how delicious, creative, and accessible the recipes were. Of course, I landed on this zoodle recipe (because #inspiralized) and everyone in my home gobbled It up – and it made the kitchen smell heavenly.

As Phoebe says in her book, it’s perfect for cold and flu season, but thanks to the zucchini noodles, also works on a chilly summer night. Totally! And if you are someone who cooks strictly seasonally, you could definitely swap up the spiralized veggie (try a butternut squash!)

This recipe was such a tasty spin on chicken noodle soup and this book is overflowing with information, inspiration, and, if you’re struggling with SIBO, is basically like a hug from a friend (and her name is Phoebe!)

Recipe

Greek Chicken Zoodle Soup with Dill

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 small fennel bulb core removed, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 medium-size carrots finely diced
  • 8 cups Low-FODMAP Chicken Bone Broth page 000
  • 1 medium-size zucchini about 8 ounces, spiralized into noodles
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice from 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 4 large eggs beaten

Instructions

  • In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper. Add to the pot in an even layer and sear until a nice crust has formed on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add the fennel and carrots to the pot. Sweat the veggies over medium heat, stirring occasionally and scraping up any brown bits that may have formed from the chicken, until tender, about 5 minutes. Return the chicken to the pot along with the broth and 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and gently simmer until the carrots are soft and the chicken is tender enough to pull apart with a fork, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot again and transfer to a medium-size bowl. Shred with a fork into bite-size pieces.
  • Meanwhile, add the zucchini noodles to the broth and simmer over low heat until tender, about 3 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and add the lemon juice, shredded chicken, and dill.
  • In a medium-size bowl or 4-cup measuring cup, beat the eggs.
  • Temper the egg by slowly whisking in 1?4 cup of the hot broth into them, adding a very small amount at a time so as not to scramble the egg. Repeat with another 3/4 cup of broth. Once the egg mixture is warm to the touch and the broth is fully incorporated, stir the mixture into the soup. If your egg “breaks” into stringy bits, don’t freak out. It will still taste delicious, but will look a little funky—like Chinese egg drop soup. Pretend that’s what you were going for and, either way, serve immediately.

This recipe looks yummy, but could you explain what a Low-Fodmap Chicken Bone Broth is and where I might find this? Thanks!

For more information about this, we highly recommend Phoebe Lapine’s new book, SIBO Made Simple. It's a broth made following specific dietary parameters.

This is WONERFUL! I shared the recipe on my Kitchen Therapy FB page. I did do one tweak. When I saw the work "Greek" my mind immediately conjured up "garlic." So, I added a couple of minced garlic cloves. Also, I used chicken breast instead of thighs because that's what I happened to have in the fridge. Next time I make it (and there WILL be a next time) I'll double up on the zoodles. For me it was a little light in the zoodle department, but then I really like zoodles!

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
