Smokey Chicken and Bean Soup

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. Many functional doctors feel there is a connection between leaky gut and autoimmune illnesses. I personally suffer from autoimmune illnesses. After suffering for years with autoimmune illnesses I have finally found something that has turned my life around. I am regaining energy. Family members have a hard time understanding a person who is exhausted. I now have the energy to exercise. Whereas before I had no energy to do anything. Changing my diet has worked for me and I am feeling a lot better

Winter is here and has made its self known. It snowed today and it actually stuck. There is still some snow on the ground. As I head off to sleep I wonder if I will awaken to snow or if it will all be melted. There is a small chance it will snow tonight. In the event of a large snowstorm, I think I would forego going to the gym. I am not sure which to hope for. It is always so beautiful to wake up to freshly fallen snow. But, it is also really nice to be able to go to the gym as going to the gym makes me feel better about myself.

I still have a cold and chicken soup often makes people feel better. I guess I also miss the summer and BBQ’s. I decided to make a smokey chicken soup that would remind me of the BBQ’s of summer. This soup begins so easy with frozen chicken. Once the chicken is cooked through remove from the soup and shred it. Replace the shredded chicken back into the soup.

3 frozen chicken breasts

1 (15 0z) can white beans

1 (15 oz) can pinto beans

1 (15 oz) black beans

1 can fire chopped tomatoes

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon my BBQ Seasoning

1/8 cup dried chopped onions

6 cups water

3 cups chicken broth

 

Place frozen chicken breast into a deep soup pan. Add white beans, pinto beans, black beans, tomatoes, paprika, onion powder, BBQ seasoning, onions, water, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Boil 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Once the chicken is cooked remove and shred. Add shredded chicken back into the soup and serve.

*Optional addition: cheese to the bottom of your bowl. This is optional and therefore not included in the nutritional facts.
