Power to the radish! Gotta say, I love radishes. Seriously. My keto life changed when I realized that you can grill radishes, and now I’ve learned that radishes come long and white  called daikon) and can be spiralized to make keto noodles, aka doodles.

Doodles! Although I love the name, I can’t take credit for it. A Healthful Pursuit reader coined the term, I think.

Low-carb, keto chicken noodle soup made with spiralized daikon, chopped carrots, celery and chicken thighs simmered in a rich chicken stock. Ready in just 30 minutes.
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 pound (453 grams) boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup diced celery* see note
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • ¾ cup (approx. 6) chopped green onion, green part only
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon grey sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups (300 grams) spiralized daikon noodles* see note
  1. To make in an Instant Pot: Add coconut oil and chicken thighs to the bowl of your Instant Pot. Set on saute and cook for 10 minutes, until chicken is just about cooked through. Shred with a fork. Add celery, carrots and onions. Cook for another 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and set on “soup” setting for 15 minutes. Once complete, add daikon noodles and serve.
  2. To make on a stove top: Add coconut oil and chicken thighs to a large saucepan. Cook on medium for 15 minutes, until chicken is just about cooked through. Shred with a fork. Add celery, carrots and onions. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Once complete, add daikon noodles and serve.
Celery: If you're severely FODMAP sensitive, you can replace the celery with more carrots, or use radishes!

Daikon Noodles: You can find daikon in your local grocery store. I was able to find some at health food stores, Superstore, and Walmart carried it, too. Best if made into keto noodles with a spiralizer, but a vegetable peeler will work as well.

This is a daikon… so you know what to look for when you go to the store.

The easiest way to store keto chicken stock is to make a large batch and freeze it in large silicon ice cube trays. Each cube is about 1/2 cup.

    • Yep! I’m a big fan of raw daikon noodles. If you’re not, feel free to cook them before serving :)

  1. I use spiralized chayote for my noodles, its very good. I’ve never thought to use daikon. Does it have the same peppery taste as a red radish? I’m not a fan of them.

    • Yes, a super similar taste. Feel free to use whatever spiralized veggie you prefer in this dish!

  2. This hit the spot! Love that you keto-fied this classic recipe. Daikon actually worked a lot better than I thought it would. Thanks Leanne

  3. I made this last weekend and it was awesome! I spiced it up a little with some turmeric to add some anti-inflammatory goodness. The daikon noodles didn’t have much of a flavor in my opinion but added a great, old school, chicken noodle touch! I will be making this again, for sure!

  4. Thank you SO much for this. I have been looking for a noodle alternative that would hold up in a soup without having to use those funky soy noodles that always smell like fish! I am doing a complete overhaul of my diet and website so I can’t wait to try this.

  5. What an innovative way to make grain-free chicken noodle soup! I love the idea of using daikon noodles!

  6. I’m sooooo happy you posted this, I’ve been craving chicken noodle soup! Does it also reheat well, I didn’t know how the diacon held up?

  7. This sounds great! Does the daikon taste like a red radish? My husband hates radishes.
