Paleo Crock Pot Chicken Soup

Paleo Crock Pot Chicken Soup

This is comfort food, pure and simple. I’ve been fighting a winter cold, and this paleo crock pot chicken soup is just about the only thing I’ve cooked this week. With only a few ingredients — chicken, carrots, celery, onion and herbs — this soup is a warm, satisfying meal. I had it for breakfast this morning with a paleo biscuit and my favorite mint tea.

One of the things I love about this simple soup is that it is so quick and easy to put together. Just add everything to the crock pot and walk away. The slow cooker does all the work — it’s perfect when you don’t have the time (or the energy) to do anything else.

This soup is chock full of chicken, and has a light broth. If you wanted a richer broth, you could always substitute chicken stock for some of the water.  Either way, this paleo crock pot chicken soup is a great winter meal. And my favorite cold remedy.

    What are your thoughts on boneless chicken breasts instead of bone in breasts and thighs? I hate messing with chicken in general and am wondering if you think this will be a flavorful option? Thank you!

      Tara, the chicken bones definitely add flavor. If you use boneless chicken, try substituting chicken stock for all or part of the water in the recipe. Hope this helps. :)

    Thanks so much for posting such a delicious and easy-to-make recipe. I usually get overwhelmed trying to cook, but this is so simple it’s now a staple in my home.

    I have this tasty dish in the crockpot right now! I went ahead and doubled the recipe since we just moved to the east coast. I’m sure having some homemade chicken soup in the freezer will be a lifesaver. If this serves 4-6 what sort of serving quantity (1 C, 2 C, etc) serving would that be?
    PS this is Paleo and waistline friendly! I doubled the recipe and logged the ingredients into MyFitnessPal in the recipes sections, and based on a 10 person serving it’s less than 300 cals! It’s just I have no idea how much is in a serving.
    Thanks for your help!
