Chicken, Lentil & Veggie Soup

Soup season is officially here! Honestly, I make soup all year round, but my husband doesn’t prefer a hot bowl of soup in the middle of the summer. So for his sake I try to limit my soup making until Fall & Winter – and then I go crazy and make ALL. THE. SOUP. The best part about it is I pretty much always use my trusty Crock Pot for all my soups! I just throw all the ingredients in in the morning, let it cook all day and have an awesome healthy dinner ready by 5! So amazing and convenient. I really love my Crock Pot! But any way, today I want to share one of my favorite healthy soups that I make very often. It’s a chicken, lentil, veggie soup – see the recipe below. It’s based on a recipe that I found online a long time ago and I have tweaked it and added to it over the years. The recipe makes a full crock pot, so if you’re not into leftovers you may want to cut the recipe in half.

Chicken, Lentil & Veggie Soup 

  • 1 pound lentils
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken (I love to use rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup corn
  • 3/4 – 1 cup broccoli 
  • 3/4 -1 cup sliced carrots
  • 3/4 -1 cup cauliflower
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano (I sometimes use oregano essential oil instead) 
  • 2 tsp chili powder 
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups chicken broth 
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • Several scoops bone broth collagen (this gives the soup an awesome healthy kick, it supports and helps boost your immune system!) 
  • When ready to serve, top with green onion, cilantro and sour cream if desired!
