Noodle-less Chicken Soup Recipe

A few months ago, I looked into doing the Paleo diet.  I felt amazing when I stuck to the diet.  I’ve kind of fell off that wagon because I’ve been dealing with being on and off sick.  But I’m back and I’m ready to fully commit to this diet again.  It’s still cold here, so I decided to make chicken soup…normally I put rice or noodles in my soup, but since that is not part of the Paleo plan, I added a bunch of vegetables instead!

Noodle-less Chicken Soup

Ingredients:

  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 2 Celery Stalks, cut into pieces
  • 4 Carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 onion, cut into pieces
  • 1 Zucchini Squash, cut into pieces 
  • 1/2 Fresh Basil, rip into pieces
  • 2 14 oz cans of Diced Tomatoes
  • 3 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 2 32 oz containers of Chicken Stock
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Boil the chicken breasts for about 30 minutes with salt and pepper.  Let the chicken cool and cut in small chunks (I run cold water over the chicken for a couple minutes).  Place chicken into the stock pot.
  2. Cut up the celery, carrots, onion, zucchini and fresh basil and put in the stock pot.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes, minced garlic and the chicken stock.
  4. Stir everything together and add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Bring the soup to a boil and then turn down the heat and simmer for about 1 hour.

This soup turned out absolutely delicious!  I did add a little bit of dried red pepper before heating it up and it was so good!

  2. My main hesitation about freezing chicken noodle soup is the noodles….love the idea to just leave them out! Looks delicious!
