I wanted to make a simple chicken soup without noodles or rice that was low-carb, healthy, and delicious! Use this as a base and add your own take on spices and veggies.

This makes HUGE portions. You could easily get 8 instead of 6. I'd recommend using all chicken stock instead of 1/3 stock and 2/3 water - there will be much more flavor that way. The paprika is a nice touch! This will be a nice healthy lunch for me this week. Read More

Delicious. The only changes I made was four cups water, three cups chicken broth, added a zucchini. I will make again. Read More

I thought this made a huge portion, as it made more servings. I just used chicken stock to get more flavor. But it is a great base. I added in more spices to amp up the flavor but you can sub any protein too. Read More

The ingredients were great, but I thought this soup needed more seasoning. I will add garlic powder and onion powder next time I make the soup. Read More

This is a delicious, quick soup that tastes like it cooked all day. I used all broth and cooked dark meat chicken. I placed the herbs inside a tea ball, so they released their flavor, but left the broth nice and clear. Add rice or noodles, if you must, but this soup is satisfying as it is, without the extra carbs. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
