Hearty Chicken Soup {Gluten Free}

This is a hearty, healthy, comfort style soup with lots of veggies and chicken. The original recipe came from Picky Palate, but she used a ranch seasoning packet that contains milk, so I came up with my own ranch-style seasoning. It turned out full of flavor and my whole family really liked this one.
Next time I’m going to try adding gluten free noodles using this method:
-Add Tinkyada noodles on step 5.
-Boil for 16 minutes, or until noodles are done.
-Reduce to low and simmer 5 minutes before serving.

Hearty Chicken Soup
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 Stalks Celery, diced
  • ½ C Red Bell Pepper
  • ½ C White Onion, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp. Seeded Jalapeno, minced (optional)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 32-oz. Box Chicken Broth (GFCF)
  • 3 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
  • 1 Can Northern Beans (white), undrained
  • 1 Can Corn, drained (optional)
  • 2 C Thinly Sliced Spinach, stems removed
  • 2 Large Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (or 2 lg. cans of drained, cooked chicken)
  • ½ Tsp. Salt
  • ¼ Tsp. Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Dried Parsley
  • ¼ Tsp. Dill
  • 1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp. Onion Powder
  • ¼ Tsp. Basil
  1. Cover Chicken with water in a large pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and cook 30 minutes.
  2. Remove chicken, shred with 2 forks, and set aside.
  3. Rinse out the same large pot you boiled your chicken in, then heat olive oil in it over medium heat.
  4. Chop up all your veggies. Saute carrots, celery, bell pepper, onion, and jalapeno (if using) for 5-8 minutes stirring frequently. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. Stir in all remaining ingredients, reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes. Enjoy your healthy hearty soup!

  1. This sounds FABULOUS! I have yet to get my picky eaters to try soup (although I’ve made it many times), but since we are transitioning to a gluten/casein-free diet, they are going to have to try some new flavors. This sounds like a good one to start with… and I actually have all the ingredients already! Thanks so much!

  2. Jana-
    Thank you! Let me know what you and your family think. Maybe your kids will like it because it really hearty and thick and not too brothy… if that’s a word 🙂
