Rainy Day Clean Eating Chicken Soup



Rainy Day Clean Eating Chicken Soup




(Makes approximately 16 cups)


1 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion – chopped
2 large leeks – chopped
6 small carrots – peeled and sliced
2 parsnips – peeled and sliced
4 cups chicken broth – no sugar added
4 cups water
4 large, raw chicken breasts – cut into bite size pieces
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp marjoram
Brown rice or noodles – Cooked separately according to package directions (omit for paleo)

(I used brown rice with Quinoa.  I made the rice separately and put it in the bowl then added the chicken soup to the top and stir.  This way the rice will not get all soggy)

Using a non stick pan, sauté the onions, leeks, carrots and parsnips in the olive oil until the leeks and onions wilt (about 5 – 7 minutes).
Transfer your vegetables to a large soup pot and add your broth, water and herbs. Cook for half an hour.
Add chicken breast and cook for another 1/2 hour.
