Chicken Plus Soup (AIP and Paleo)

I wish I could take credit for this delicious recipe. Truth be told, it was all my husband that came up with this soup. One of the great things about soup is that if you make a large quantity, it can be used for more than one meal. It is so simple just to warm up a pot of soup. This is one of our family favorites. We hope you enjoy!  

2 TBSP Olive Oil

1 TBSP minced garlic

1 large onion chopped

4 carrots

1 turnip

2 yams (sweet potatoes)

2 lbs chicken

1 tsp garlic powder

1 bunch bok choy

6 C chicken bone broth

In a large soup pot, add the olive oil, minced garlic, and chopped onion. Saute until the onion starts to brown, about 5 minutes. (I love the flavor of the browned onion, especially when it starts to carmelize. But if you don't, you can shorten this time to 3 minutes.) 

Chop the carrots into slices and the turnip into small 1/4-inch pieces, then add them to your soup pot. Continue to saute for 3-5 minutes. 

Add the garlic powder and 2 cups of bone broth. Continue to cook on medium heat.   

Slice your chicken into small pieces, about 1/4-inch in size, and add the chicken and the remaining bone broth to the pot. 

Bring to a boil, then reduce to low and simmer for 30 minutes. 

While it simmers, chop your yams into 1/4-inch pieces and add them to the soup. Cook for another 10-15 minutes, until yams are soft. 

Finally chop your bok choy leaves, then add to your soup just before serving.
