This healthy Chicken & Kale Soup is an easy chicken soup recipe! This naturally gluten free chicken soup is full of big pieces of chicken breast, carrots, celery, and onion – just like traditional chicken noodle soup. But, instead of noodles, this soup is loaded with kale!
Why You'll Love This Recipe
I love this healthy Chicken & Kale Soup because not only is it healthy, but it’s also delicious! I use Organic Prairie Chicken Breasts so there are big pieces of chicken along with the traditional carrots, celery, and onion that you’d find in traditional chicken noodle soup. But instead of noodles, I use kale for a gluten free chicken soup that is so good!
This easy chicken soup recipe can be made using chicken broth or chicken bone broth. I love using bone broth in recipes because it adds more protein and the added health benefits.

This easy chicken soup recipe has only 8 ingredients and it’s so easy to make! I make this in my slow cooker, but you can just as easily make it in Dutch oven or pot on the stove as well.
How to Make Healthy Chicken & Kale Soup
First step is chopping the carrots, celery, and onion. I roughly chop these so there are larger pieces of each!
Next, chop the chicken into cubes that are about 1-inch. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Using your slow cooker (or Dutch oven), add ghee (or you can also use olive oil) and sear the chicken for 2 to 3 minute. Then add in the bone broth.
Turn the heat to low or simmer if you are using a Dutch oven on the stove and add in the veggies. Sit back while your soup simmers and cooks!
When the veggies are cooked to your liking, then add in the kale and cook for an addition couple minutes. The kale doesn’t need much time!

Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
