No matter the season, we know you guys can get on board with a good soup recipe. While the cooler months inspire more batch-cooked, bone broth-rich bowls, it’s a great template to use up stray produce or get a meal to store in the freezer for later.
Break out your biggest pot, dutch oven, slow cooker, or all three and get to cooking. These are some of the best Paleo chicken soup recipes from around the web.
It’s a great time to meal prep, preserve the seasonal harvest and tuck into something incredibly warm, cozy and nourishing.

Creamy chicken “noodle” soup

Paleo crock pot chicken soup
Crock pots are made for slow-simmering soup, and the wonderful smell will take over the house which makes eating the soup that much better. This Paleo chicken soup recipe uses both bone-in thighs and breasts which is inexpensive and provides a variety of flavor.
