No-Noodle Chicken Soup








  • 4 oz. butter
  • 2 tbsp dried minced onion
  • 2 (2¾ oz.) celery stalks, chopped
  • 6 oz. (2½ cups) mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 2 oz. (7 tbsp) carrots, sliced
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1½ (22⁄3 lbs) rotisserie chicken* , shredded
  • 5 oz. green cabbage, sliced into strips


  1. Melt the butter in a large pot, over medium heat.
  2. Add dried onion, chopped celery, sliced mushrooms and garlic into the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add broth, sliced carrot, parsley, salt, and pepper. Simmer until vegetables are tender.
  4. Add cooked chicken and cabbage. Simmer for an additional 8-12 minutes until the cabbage “noodles” are tender.


*One rotisserie chicken yields about 4 cups (1.25 lb, 600 g) of shredded white and dark chicken meat.

This cabbage soup freezes well for those times when you don’t feel like cooking, but you need a healthy chicken no-noodle soup! You can also store it in the refrigerator for up to four days.
