Chicken and Vegetable Soup

2013 – Gluten Free Living

We love Chicken and Vegetable Soup any time of the year! Fall is finally here in Texas. So it’s a great time to roll out those comforting, hot soup recipes everyone loves this time of year. Chicken and Vegetable Soup is a delicious concoction filled with lots of great garden veggies. It’s extremely low calorie, gluten free and healthy. It’s also dairy free.

I made this soup a couple of weeks ago when I was wanting hot lunch meals rather than salads or sandwiches. It really hit the spot. I’ve flavored this soup with four different fresh herbs that provide wonderful flavor. I used the convenience of a rotisserie chicken and chicken broth. But you can easily cook off your own chicken and make your own chicken broth for this recipe too.

This soup is pretty easy to throw together. Plus, there’s no reason why you couldn’t pile all the ingredients in a crockpot to cook it up too. I was wanting a meal a little sooner and didn’t want to wait four or five hours which is the only reason I didn’t use my crockpot on this recipe.

For those who have a garden this is a great soup to make up anytime of the year. If you want to use up peas, carrots, potatoes, celery, onions, bell peppers, or corn, this is the recipe for you. You can also add leeks to this soup which add an awesome flavor and texture to the soup. If you’ve never cooked with leeks before you don’t know what your missing. They are wonderful!

Anyway, the flavors in this soup can’t be beat. If you want a vegan version, eliminate the meat and use vegetable broth instead. I thought Chicken and Vegetable Soup turned out marvelous with the chicken added to it, and this would also be a fantastic way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey and broth, too!

This is an extremely tasty soup recipe that’s healthy, really low in calories, gluten and dairy free. Chicken and Vegetable Soup is terrific if you want something warm and comforting on a cold, winter night. It’s really not all that difficult to make, though it does take a few minutes to chop up the veggies and pull the chicken off the bone. This is a savory, flavorful soup your whole family will enjoy. Plus, you can eat as much of it as you want!, whenever you want. 🙂 Try a cup, or two, or three, or four…..you get it, of this lovely soup. Yum.

I initially posted this recipe in November 2013. I recently remade this soup (June 2020) and snapped a few new pictures. I also cut the recipe in half because the original recipe was so large. This mouthwatering soup is hearty and satisfying.
