Time to make my favorite soup OF ALL TIME: Lemon Chicken “Noodle” Soup!

Why I like this recipe:

  • I get to use my favorite kitchen appliance OF ALL TIME: MY CROCK POT!
  • It’s just like a chicken noodle soup. But since I don’t regularly eat noodles, I’m gonna put KALE strips in it and PRETEND like they’re noodles! Trust me, it’s just as good.
  • It’s easy. There are only six ingredients. For the chicken, I just buy a rotisserie from Costco and take all the meat off of it.
  • It’s very soothing when you are sick: it’s soup, duh! But also, the lemon has tons of vitamin C and the kale has tons of fiber and vitamins as well.
  • You know I’m gonna break out my mason jars and freeze half of the batch for later!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is what you need!

  • 6 cups of chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • The meat from one rotisserie chicken, or 4 cups of shredded chicken
  • 1 bag of chopped kale (Remember, I like to buy the pre-washed/pre-cut kind from Trader Joe’s)
  • 3 lemons
  • 1 white onion

Here is what you do!

Peel the onion and chop into chunks. Put 2 cups of stock into a blender, add the chopped onion, and olive oil to a blender.ย Blend for one minute or until liquefied.

Add the liquid in the blender to the crock pot and add the remaining 4 cups of broth. Add the kale and shredded chicken.

Zest all three lemons right into the crock. Then, cut the lemons in half and add their juice. I have like the handiest Zest ‘n Press gadget in the world for this, because it zests and juices the lemons! You can buy the one that I have here. ย Note: always make sure you zest before you press. It won’t work the other way around.

Look at all that beautiful zest!

Set the crock pot on low for 4-6 hours. Stir once or twice during this time.

When the soup is done, you can serve it immediately, store it in the fridge, or freeze!ย Soooo good!
