Chicken Noodless Soup

Nothing is better on a chilly winter day than a warm bowl of tasty soup. Salads don’t appeal to me as much for lunch this time of year, so I decided to make a big batch of soup to take to work to enjoy instead. I actually got the idea for this soup from my Mother In Law, she had something similar waiting for us when we arrived in New York for Thanksgiving and it was delicious!¬†

Ingredients:

1 package boneless skinless chicken thighs – mine had 6 (or whatever chicken you want, but thighs are cheaper and perfect for soup)

6 cups chicken broth

1 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes

Half a bag of baby carrots, chopped

1/2 a large onion, diced finely

1 tsp crushed garlic

2 big handfuls of spinach (or more if you want)

Dried thyme and oregano

Sea salt and Pepper

1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil

Directions:

In a big pot, get coconut oil melted over medium high heat.  Then add onion, garlic, and carrots and sautee for about 5 minutes.

Now add chicken stock, tomatoes, and raw chicken to the pot. Sprinkle salt, pepper, thyme, and oregano across the top as shown in picture, then stir it all together making sure chicken is submerged.

Turn heat down to medium and just let this simmer for about 20 minutes or so. Then take your chicken out on a plate and shred, returning shredded chicken to pot.

Once this is done, go ahead and add your spinach, I started with 2 handfuls, then added a bit more – whatever your preference. Stir spinach in and add any more seasoning to taste. Just let this simmer another 10 minutes or so and then you are done! I let mine cool down and then put into Tupperware to take for lunches. Enjoy!

Just wanted to say how much I’ve been enjoying your blog – both the fashion AND the food. I tried out your almond flour chicken tenders with marinara sauce a few weeks ago, and it’s now in my regular meal rotation. It was delicious! Looking forward to trying chicken ‘noodle-less’ soup soon as well, not to mention the recently posted curry meatballs.

In the meantime, I’ve also really been enjoying the fashion posts, and I appreciate your finding wonderful things that are affordable in regular stores – thank you!

I found your blog by way of YLF. I can’t say I’ve ever come across a blog that combines good food with fashion – but here it is! I’m not your typical “Paleo” person (or what I perceive to be typical), in that I don’t do all the serious exercise, and …well, you won’t catch me in those weird Vibram shoes or whatever they are…

The way you post meal ideas and recipes is much appreciated because you make it seem easy, and accessible. We don’t all have the latest and greatest tools or the exact ingredients called for, but you still make it work, so that anyone can try out a recipe.

The fashion posts are the same way. Accessible, do-able and fun.

Thanks for writing a great blog!

    Your comment made my day Sarah, thank you! Glad you liked the chicken tenders! I wouldn’t say we are typical “Paleo” people either, no vibram 5 fingers here! We actually started doing Paleo before either of us joined Crossfit – we were introduced by our wedding photographer and it just made sense to us! Thanks for following, it is much appreciated! If there is anything specific you would like to see, let me know!
