Paleo Chicken Soup (...for the Caveman's Soul) (GF)

Servings: 4 -6
Cook Time: 47 minutes
Total Time: 47 minutes


  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 of a yellow onion, , minced (this was a scant 1 cup for me)
  • 1 small fennel, , chopped (include the stems)
  • 6 garlic cloves, , minced (this was 1 Tbs + 2 tsp for me)
  • 2 pounds chicken, (organic boneless skinless tenders)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 6 cups organic chicken stock
  • 1 sweet potato, , peeled, sliced, and quartered
  • 3 large carrots, , peeled and chopped
  • 1 head of cauliflower, , cut into small florets


  • Heat 1 Tbs of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Put the minced onion, minced garlic, and chopped fennel into the pot. Cook for 5-6 minutes while stirring every so often.
  • Using kitchen scissors, cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and put the chicken into the pot.
  • Top the chicken with the salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, oregano, and thyme. Cook for 12 minutes, while stirring every so often.
  • Add the chicken stock to the pot, cover, and let everything cook for 10 minutes.
  • Lower the heat to low-medium.
  • Add the cut up sweet potato, carrots, and cauliflower to the pot, cover, and cook for 20 minutes.
  • (If a you can take a knife and easily slide it through the potatoes, carrots, and cauliflower, then your soup is done! If not, cook for a bit longer.)
