Ingredients

  • 3 organic chicken breasts (or boneless chicken thighs)
  • 4 stalks organic celery
  • 2 large organic carrots
  • 4 cups organic bone broth (I like bonafide or to make my own)
  • 1 large organic zucchini
  • 1 cup raw dandelion greens or arugula
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ½ white onion (if tolerated)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder (or fresh grated turmeric root)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Avocado oil or grass fed ghee/butter
  • Optional: ½ cup organic sprouted brown rice (I used thrive market brand)

Personal tips

  • Optional: rinse and then cook brown rice per package instructions and add a spoonful to soup once serving (I like to keep it on the side so you can portion how much grain you’re using at a time)
  • To stay Grain Free/PaleoWhole 30/Keto eliminate the rice in this recipe

  5. Sprinkle 1-2 tsp turmeric (ground or fresh) to the pot with a few cracks of black pepper
  6. Fill the pot with bone broth and add the whole chicken breasts directly to the pot and bring to a boil (may need to add water as needed to make sure the chicken is fully covered)
