This healthy Lemon Basil Chicken Detox Soup is SO delicious, and is a great way to kickstart your diet and weight loss goals. It’s easy to make for lunch or dinner, on the stove or in a slow cooker. You can even make a big batch of this soup and store it in your freezer. This recipe is also Whole30/Paleo approved.
This detox soup is SO tasty, satisfying and even a tiny bit spicy. I tend to think that when noodles are in your chicken soup, you miss out on tasting all those textured vegetables.
Each time I wanted to do a cleanse to pave the way for healthier eating, I would make this soup. The freshly squeezed lemon and the aroma of the basil really make this soup stand out. You then just add shredded chicken breasts.
Vegan? No problem! You can substitute the chicken broth and chicken breasts with veggie broth and opt out of meat or add chickpeas.
I always double the recipe, so I can store half in the freezer. It smells amazing when it’s reheated!
I love how all the colors POP right out of the pot!
Speaking of which…
I nearly burned down my kitchen getting this photo. EEK!
I was so distracted looking through my lens, that the cord from my mobile lighting system got caught around the gas stove burner grate. This event produced a horrid burnt plastic smell, followed by electrical sparks.
After the shock wore off, all I could do was laugh about it and continue cooking! I’m sure I’m not the only one that this has happened to! Am I right? 🙂
I hope you enjoy this effortlessly healthy, warm and delicious detox soup!
Just try not to burn down your kitchen, like I almost did!!
