Paleo Chicken Soup Recipe Slow Cooker

Thank you to Netflix for sponsoring this post.

It seems as though sickness has invaded our home.  We are all sniffling, sneezing, coughing or otherwise not feeling that fantastic.  I really like home remedies for when we aren’t feeling well. A sore throat gets tea with lemon and honey.  A cold gets chicken noodle soup – or it used to. Since Sarah is gluten intolerant, noodles aren’t a good choice unless they are gluten free. Since I’m following the Paleo diet, even gluten free noodles and rice are out of the picture.  I’ve been working on a Paleo chicken soup recipe – slow cooker style – since the last thing I want to do when I’m not feeling great is spend tons of time in the kitchen.

Paleo Chicken Soup Recipe Slow Cooker

I try very hard to buy local, organic foods to use when I cook. I like supporting our local economy and I like knowing that the foods we eat really are safe to eat. That said, I cannot always find everything I want local or organic. Vermont has a very short growing season and limited options for organic food.  When I cannot buy local organic, I choose organic. If I cannot find local or organic, I try to find all natural, scrub the heavens out of it or substitute another ingredient. Do the best you can with the options you have.

Now grab a bowl of soup and settle down on the couch to watch a few movies till you feel better. One of my personal favorites is Daddy Daycare.  It makes me giggle every time I watch it. Watch what happens when Dads decide to open up a day care. You won’t believe some of the things that happen. I’m a huge Eddie Murphy fan and this one is safe for the entire family. You can find all of these titles and more on Netflix.

  2. we do a lot of movies and soup in the winter. Great way to spend a weekend!

  3. Looks so good. I will have to try it sometime. And I do wish I could snuggle up on the couch with a good movie.

  4. Love the ingredients in this recipe!! It looks like we are gonna get colder this week, so it might have to be on the menu for Wednesday or Thursday!! Thanks Ellen for another fabulous recipe! 

  5. I hope you are feeling better. Sickness has invaded at our house too. I tore my pantry apart trying to find a can of chicken soup! I love homemade so much more though. 

  6. There’s something super comforting about a bowl of soup in the wintertime. Sounds delicious, Ellen! You suggested some cute movies too.

  7. This looks yummy! We are gluten free too so I’m always looking for healthy gluten free recipes!

  8. Yum!  The chicken looks so juicy and wonderful!  Your pictures make me want a bowl to warm me up on this chilly afternoon.  Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  9. Oh man! This looks so good!!!

  10. Paleo or not this soup looks amazing to me. Yum!

  11. My son has school off today for MLK and it is cold outside. This post is a good idea for tonight. . . homemade chicken soup and a Movie on Netflix (Which I just got this month) Maybe we will watch The Croods! FUN. 

  12. Those pearl onions must make it taste so good! I love soup that cooks all day.  So much more flavorful! 

  13. I’ve been making more soups than usual this winter for some reason and this sounds like a great one to add to my line up!

  14. That really looks good and healthy. My kind of meal!

  15. How do you like eating on the Paleo diet? Do you find yourself eating more at home instead of going out?

  16. This recipe looks clean and fresh. Homemade soup is a treat that families treasure and this one has a very nice appearance.

  17. That recipe looks delicious! Especially on a cold winter day!

  18. Hope you guys are feeling better.  I love to use my slow cooker, soup looks delicious.

  19. This soup looks delicious. It also has everything that I love inside of it! Not to mention it’s very healthy. Soup is my go to meal during those chilly nights that I just want to cuddle on the couch with my pups.

  20. This sounds delicious.  I’ll have to remember it with the cold days we have ahead of us.

  21. I love the look of your soup and I’m sure it’s pretty delicious as well. Chicken soup is always great when you’re sick. As for movies, daddy daycare is one of my favorites as well. 

  22. i just love homemade chicken soup!! it’s divine!

  23. Chicken soup is always a winner. I make mine like this except for the pearl onions (And I love pearl onions. ) Definitely trying this out!

  24. What a yummy soup! And healthy! I pinned it so I can try it out myself.

  25. Amy Desrosiers says:

    I am not a soup person, but I do love each ingredient on its own. This is also easy to make and paleo which is great!

  26. Love soup!!! Take out the onions and I totally want this!

  27. That really looks delicious. I love that it’s not too many ingredients – keeping it healthy!

  28. Looks so delicious! I am so excited you have so many Paleo recipes – you will be a great resource! Our family loves The Croods! It’s so funny!

  29. I love anything I can make in a slow cooker. This looks delicious. 

  30. My husband has a bad cold right now (the kiddo and me have both kicked it.) We were JUST talking about how he needs chicken soup, and I have most of these ingredients. Definitely throwing this into our menu rotation this week.

  31. My dad is a big chicken noodle soup fan and since we’ve butchered our own chickens, we have it constantly in this household! Unfortunately though, he’s a gluten noodle fiend; I try to stay away from them the best I can and I think this would be a wonderful recipe to try :D

    Thank you so much for providing this alternative recipe!

  32. you had me at “slow cooker” and soup

    dinner? done.

  33. Chicken soup is the best when you’re sick. Looks delicious, Ellen. Pinned. And Daddy Daycare is such a fun movie; it’s been awhile since we watched that; I bet my boys would really like that one. Will have to add to our movie list.

  34. Slow cooker soups are always welcome around here. Anytime I can have a warm, satisfying meal without too much prep, I’m game! Netflix is the only form of television we have these days, and pairing that with a warm soup on a cold day is a great dinner idea.

  35. Oh it looks fantastic. I love snuggling up with a great movie and some great food.

  36. My husband is considering moving to Paleo and would love this. We’ll have to try it soon – thanks!

  37. I bet this will fight our sickies away! Right now I am sitting at home trying to make sure my temp doesn’t rise anymore and my three kids are here too. All sick. Thanks for this recipe.

  38. Pearl onions are such a great way to add onion flavor into a dish without having such a harsh onion smell (plus no crying while dicing!) I’m going to have to try this sometime. 

  39. That looks really good! We may have to try it sometime.

  40. Yummy! A warm bowl of soup sounds perfect right now. Thanks for the recipe!

  41. Mmm, this looks SOO  good! I’ve never added spinach to chicken soup, but that’s a great way to up the flavor and the nutrition. :-) Thanks so much for sharing, Ellen, and for linking up with Nomday Monday. I hope you have a blessed day!

  42. I don’t do Paleo but I’d try this soup. It sounds like a great recipe for a perfect day. 

  43. This paleo recipe looks so good and easy! I’ve never used my crockpot to make soup before but with the cold weather, it sounds amazing!

  44. I’m so obsessed with all of these slow cooker recipes sprouting up. I’m not on the paleo diet but I wouldn’t be oposed to adding these ingredients in addition to my noodles. 

  45. I love slow cooker recipes and chicken soup is my favorite!

  46. I am trying to use our slow cooker even more this year, and chicken soup sounds good.  Especially since everyone in the house has either had a bug, a cold, or both in the past week.  Those pearl onions remind me of my Great Gram – she always had my Gram make her boiled onions for Thanksgiving. (Random, I know – sorry! lol)

  3. […] 5. Paleo Chicken Soup Chicken soup doesn’t need too much doctoring to it to make it Paleo friendly, as long as you nix the noodles. This recipe is one that we like because it is made in the slow cooker, so you can let that do all of the heavy lifting while you go do other things. When it’s ready you come back to a nice hot meal. This is the sort of soup that you’ll need to plan ahead for, since they’re asking you to cook it for 8-10 hours, and then cook it a bit more once it’s nearly time to eat. This makes it great for getting going in the morning so you have little to do when you get home and you’re already hungry. […]
