Lanphier Family Hearty & Healthy Chicken Soup

During the fall and winter this recipe hearty & healthy chicken soup is a fav in our home. Not to mention it’s nutrient dense, will definitely stick to your ribs and will help to open up your sinuses. I highly recommend it for those times when someone in the family is suffering from a cold, sore throat, cough, flu or sinus infection. And, of course, it’s absolutely wonderful on those cold-to-the-bone winter evenings. Serve with a colorful, raw, organic salad and homemade organic cornbread.

Lanphier Family Hearty & Healthy Chicken Soup can be made with or without free-range chicken for vegans and vegetarians. Potatoes can be omitted and organic wild rice or brown rice substituted. Or add this healthy chicken soup over some cooked rice.

Ingredient List

2-3 Organic/free range chicken breasts or one small free range chicken (boiled) (optional)
3-4 boxes of organic chicken or vegetable broth (or homemade)
2-3 cups of purified water
1-2 TBSP of red wine vinegar
2 TBSP unrefined, cold-pressed olive oil or refined coconut oil
3-4 stalks of diced organic celery
1-3 medium to large diced organic onion (the more the better)
3-5 cloves organic garlic (minced…the more the better)
2-3 packages organic frozen mixed vegetables (sometimes I add extra organic carrots)
1 package of frozen organic okra (optional)
1 can organic tomatoes with green chilies
Diced organic red potatoes (2 potatoes for each member–since these are usually small potatoes)
Garlic pepper or organic black pepper (organic) to taste
Himalayan Salt (to taste)
Organic Chili Powder (I use a lot of this!)


Boil chicken breasts in purified water on top of stove. Saute in coconut oil (use the refined unless you want everything to taste like coconuts) the following: red wine vinegar, garlic, onion and diced celery. Add broth, tomatoes with green chilies and purified water. When hot add frozen vegetables and diced potatoes. Shred cooked chicken breasts and add to soup. Cook (covered) until all vegetables are tender. Add seasonings (pepper, salt and chili powder) to taste (be sure to taste as this can easily get too “hot”) and simmer, covered, for 15-20 more minutes. This makes a large pot of soup and freezes well. Easily feeds 4-6 people.
