Good Old Fashioned Chicken Soup

When you can’t have Mom’s chicken soup and don’t care for all of the “unknowns” in canned soups on the market today, try this recipe.


  • 1 package boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
  • 3 carrots (diced)
  • 3 ribs of celery (diced)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 3 medium cloves garlic (minced)
  • 64 oz. chicken stock (gluten-free stock is optional)
  • 32 oz. water
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • cooked rice or pasta (optional)


  • Place all ingredients in a large stock pot and bring to a boil.
  • Boil until the chicken is cooked through (approx. 25-30 minutes).
  • Remove the chicken from the pot and shred with a fork. Replace chicken to the pot and enjoy or add cooked rice or cooked pasta.

    I’ve been making this, or some variation of it, almost 1x a week during the winter. Simple, cheap, and an easy meal!

      You can’t go wrong with soup! I love to make large batches, store it in single serve containers and freeze so you can have a nice variety of soup whenever you want.
