Paleo Chicken Soup

This simple Paleo chicken soup recipe is a fantastic light, healthy meal. This dish is great just as an appetizer, dinner or even as a paleo friendly lunch.

One of the best things about this soup is that if you have the leftover roast chicken, then you’re able to use that in place of the raw chicken in this recipe. If you’re using leftover chicken, don’t add it until step seven. You will also need to replace the 5 cups of water with a chicken stock.

This chicken soup reheats pretty well so if you like to make things in bulk and eat them over the course of a few days, then this recipe is perfect for just that. You can also freeze it down if you want it to last more than just a couple of days.

Homemade Chicken Soup

There is nothing like some chicken soup on a day when you’re not feeling the greatest. Personally, I love having a nice warm soup when I have a cold or just not feeling very well. This soup is pretty healthy with a ton of vegetables and a chicken stock made from scratch making it great for getting those vital nutrients.

Cooking Tips:

  • Skimming the scum/foam off the top of the soup will help keep the broth nice and clear. You will need to do this for when you cook the chicken and also when you cook the vegetables. If you don’t do this, then you will still have a great tasting soup, but it won’t be very clear.
  • As I mentioned above, you can use leftover chicken in place of the raw chicken. If you decide on this, then just shred it and skip to step seven. However, you will probably want to replace the water with some chicken stock, so you still get the full flavor of the soup.
  • Other vegetables such as broccoli & Brussel sprouts also work well in this recipe. Add any extra vegetables at the same time you add the cauliflower.
  • An important thing to look out for when making soup is getting the seasoning right. If you put too much salt in then it’s almost impossible to fix it. To avoid doing this simply taste as you season, you will eventually get the perfect balance of flavor.
