Did you know that Costco has chicken burgers that taste really good in soup? You read that right! Amylu Chicken Burgers are sold in Costco and they are super yummy and easy to cut up and throw into this hearty and healthy soup.
Last fall, I got a killer cold. When I’m sick I crave Chicken Noodle Soup. Raise your hand if you grew up on Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup? It was the soup my Mom gave me anytime I was ill. As an adult, I usually make my own so I can add more veggies and control the sodium. But, I still love those little squares of processed chicken in the Campbell’s version. (Am I a freak?!)
Anyway, I hadn’t been to the grocery store in a while and our fridge was almost empty. Luckily I had just enough ingredients to throw together in a pot and make this yummy Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup. My good friend gave me two Amylu burgers to try (because buying a Costco quantity of something you’ve never tried before is brave) and they were still sitting in the fridge. I was hesitant to try them, but in a pinch I had to use what I had on hand to make my chicken noodle soup.
I was overwhelmingly ecstatic by the results! The chicken burgers were perfectly seasoned for the soup. But, best of all, it had the same texture as those little squares in the Campbell’s version! I vowed to write down the recipe and share it with you, so here it is:
Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup (using Chicken Burgers)
- 2 – 32 oz. cartons of Chicken Broth
- 2 cups of finely chopped fresh spinach
- 1 cup chopped onions
- 2-3 cloves of chopped garlic
- 8 baby carrots chopped
- 1.5 cups Gluten Free corn pasta (I used DeBole Penne Pasta)
- 2 Amylu Carmelized Onions with Red Bell Peppers Chicken Burgers chopped into cubes
- 1 tbsp. Olive oil
- Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Pour broth into a big pot and heat on medium-high heat. Add carrots.
2. Pour olive oil into a fry pan and heat the oil. Add onions, garlic and spinach and sauté until the spinach is wilted.
3. Scrape spinach, onion and garlic into the soup pot. Return the fry pan to the heat and lightly fry the chicken burger cubes.
4. Add chicken to the soup pot and continue to cook until carrots are soft.
5. Add pasta and cook according to package directions.
6. Add salt & pepper to taste.
(Makes 4-5 servings)
Enjoy a healthy soup and don’t tell anyone that you used chicken burgers. They might not understand. 😉
Have you tried the Amylu Chicken Burgers as a burger? How is it? I have yet to try them as they were intended to be eaten.
Psst: No disclosure necessary because I wasn’t paid to write about Amylu’s Chicken Burgers. Amylu doesn’t know me from Cindy Lou Who or anyone else in Whoville. I did get them free from my friend, but she never asked me to blog about chicken burgers. Nor did she intend for me to add them to soup. Never you fear, I will always disclose to you if you are reading a sponsored post or if I was given something to try.
