Chicken Detox Soup (props to Somer)
YIELD: 8-12 bowls
PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOK TIME: 35 minutes
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
2 quarts chicken broth
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
3 cups broccoli florets
2 1/2 cups sliced carrots
2 cups chopped celery
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
1/4 cup chopped parsley
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons fresh shredded or grated ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
Salt and pepper
Set a large sauce pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil, chopped onions, celery, ginger, and garlic. Saute for 5-6 minutes to soften. Then add the chicken breasts, broth, carrots, apple cider vinegar, crushed red pepper, turmeric and 1 teaspoon sea salt.
Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 20+ minutes, until the chicken breasts are cooked through. Then remove the chicken with tongs and set them on a cutting board to cool.
Add the broccoli, peas, and parsley to the pot. Continue to simmer to soften the broccoli. Meanwhile, shred the chicken breasts with two forks, and stir it back into the soup. Once the broccoli is tender, taste, then salt and pepper as needed. Serve warm.
