Chicken Detox Soup

This is a GREAT soup and is super easy to make and will last a couple of days. The toughest part about it is chopping all the veggies. It’s on the healthier side too, packed with veggies!

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 qt chicken broth (or try “better than bouillon”)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cups broccoli florets, chopped
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 bunch of celery, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups frozen peas
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper
  • salt and pepper

Steps

  1. Heat up a large pot
  2. Add the olive oil and chopped onions — sweat the onions by themselves
  3. Add the celery and garlic and sautee for 5-6 minutes to soften
  4. Add the chicken breasts, broth, carrots, apple cider vinegar, crushed red pepper, and 1 tsp of salt
  5. Bring to a boil then lower the heat and simmer for 20+ minutes (until the chicken breasts are cooked through)
  6. Remove the chicken with tongs and place them in a metal bowl
  7. Add the broccoli, peas, and parsley to the pot and continue to simmer to soften the broccoli
  8. Shred the chicken breasts with two forks, and stir it back into the soup
  9. Once the broccoli is tender, taste, then salt and pepper as needed
