Paleo – check!
Crockpot – check!
Creamy soup – check!
Need I say more? Probably not – but I will! With the kids back in school and cooler temps descending upon us – it’s the perfect time to pull out the crockpot (if you don’t have one – make that purchase NOW!) and whip up a quick and easy batch of this Paleo Crockpot Creamy Chicken Soup. I wish I knew who to give credit to – but unfortunately it is one of those recipes that gets passed down on a tattered piece of paper, from one mom to another – and there is no author, website or cookbook listed.
If you can find TEN MINUTES in the morning to toss the ingredients into the crockpot – you will have a meal ready and waiting by dinner time. Start by chopping the veggies. The recipe calls for a jalapeno pepper and garlic too. But I forgot to buy the jalapeno pepper and I used minced garlic in a jar, to save time.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the crockpot…
Plus some spices…
And a few chicken breasts…
When you are ready to eat, gently remove the chicken and shred it with 2 forks. Then return the chicken to the crockpot and stir until well mixed. You can eat it as is, or top it with some fresh avocado.
