So… How is your New Year diet coming along? Be honest.

I’ve got a secret to share that may help give you the extra boost you need to get things moving in the right direction.

A good friend of mine is the founder of Neo Snacks, a producer of organic, paleo, vegetarian, and gluten free snack bars that happen to taste amazing. A couple years ago she introduced me to a cleanse concept she and her husband follow on occasion when they need a reset in their health and diet. It’s a Chicken Detox Soup Cleanse from the book Perfect Weight America.

Healthy Chicken Detox Soup Recipe & Cleanse | (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

From my personal experiences, cleanses usually involve expensive herbal supplement kits from the health food store, or a whole lot of juicing.

However this cleanse is different. It’s a nourishing homemade soup with fresh chicken, loads of veggies, and ginger, to boost your metabolism and immune system, as well as remove toxins to help your body to work as it should.

It is gluten free, dairy free, and paleo to boot.

Although this soup is meant to be used as a 10 day cleanse, and you will probably be ready for a change after so many days and bowls of soup, it is a completely sustainable food. Meaning, you could live off of it. With protein, vegetables, vitamins, and minerals, it provides more nutrients than most of the world’s population receives on any given day.

So don’t be afraid to give it a try!

In the book, the suggested cleanse structure is to eat the soup alone for several days. It’s so low in fat and calories, you can eat as much as you want. After 3-4 days you may introduce green salads with raw nuts in the evenings. By the end of the cleanse you still eat the Chicken Detox Soup all day, but can add salmon to your evening salad for a little extra healthy fat.

Lt. Dan and I have done the Chicken Detox Soup Cleanse several times and each time it helps us shed water-weight, a few extra “real” pounds, and sets a precedent for continued healthy eating.

Since we’ve started, several friends have also tried the Chicken Detox Soup and have had the same results.

We love this Chicken Detox Soup Recipe & Cleanse | (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

The original recipe in the book calls for all organic ingredients including a whole chicken, and several veggies that aren’t my favorite to have floating in soup. We’ve made the soup as recommended several times, yet Dan always complains about the recipe. Over time I’ve developed my own rendition that we feel is easier to enjoy for the length of the cleanse… No picking chicken bones and skin out of the soup. No mushy veggies.

My Chicken Detox Soup follows the same principles, yet is tastier and can be made in less time. Even with the changes, it still works like a charm.

Why not give it a go?

    Made this tonight I omitted the peas and added mushrooms and lemongrass . It was awesome will make again. Love your recipes.

    Do you know what the calorie count per serving is ? Made it tonight – so good!!

      Don’t need to worry about calories with a soup this healthy!  You can eat as much as you want!

    Substitute suggestion for ginger–allergic. Thanks looks divine


    • Sommer — January 26th, 2016 @ 10:22 am

      Hi Chris! The ginger is an important component for detoxification. However, you can try adding other  ingredients that are know to detox… Lemongrass, cilantro, cabbage, kale are a few.


  14. Marge Fredricksonposted January 27, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    Do you have the nutritional breakdown, carbs, sodium, etc.  I am doing low carb diet and this info would be useful so that I could do some substitutions, mushrooms for peas, etc.  love ginger, so healthful. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely be making this soup.

  20. Cynthia Cornejoposted February 13, 2016 at 2:39 am

    I made this soup and it us fantastic. I fix a bowl every time my stomach grumbles and it is so delicious and satisfying. I have lost 5 lbs in a few days. Thank you so much for this great recipe!


  21. Carrie Halbrooksposted February 14, 2016 at 12:08 pm

    Hi! I am trying to lose some weight for the upcoming spring break season! I was doing really well with my eating and working out and then this past week I completely splurged all week long with eating, so I feel like I need a reset. I can’t wait to try this! What do you recommend eating for breakfast?


  22. Alex Kposted February 14, 2016 at 4:19 pm

    Hi! I am making this for dinner but I would like to cook it in a crockpot. Can I just throw everything in at once and cook 5 hours on High? Thank you!!


    • natasia — February 20th, 2016 @ 11:17 pm

      Your veggies would be complete mush. I would cook the chicken with the broth, spices, and onion in the crockpot until the chick can be shredded. Shred the chicken, then put the chicken and veggies in the pot cook and cook for probably about and hour until R the veggies reach the softness you want


  23. Dottiposted February 25, 2016 at 12:20 pm

    Do you have the nutritional value for this recipe?


  24. Kiara Fauxbelposted February 27, 2016 at 1:19 pm

    This was SOOOOO delicious! It had so much flavor, you would never believe it’s so healthy! Only had ground ginger, so I used that, maybe about 2 1/2 tablespoons, and I had to add a little extra EVOO to stop the ground ginger from burning in the beginning.

    Hi, I was wondering do we have to eat only this soul to detox? I mean mornings my husband and i make our own replacement shakes for breakfast but the soup would do perfect for lunch and dinner to help jump start our weight loss journey. 


  27. Betsyposted March 5, 2016 at 8:46 pm

    What can I sub for peas? I do Paleo and peas aren’t allowed besides I also don’t like peas.


    • Sommer — March 8th, 2016 @ 8:03 pm

      Hi Betsy! Add any veggie you like! Maybe red bell peppers?


  28. Maeveposted March 6, 2016 at 2:32 pm

    Do you have calorie count for a serving? Anything you have would be great. It’s cooking and I can’t wait to try it!


    • Sommer — March 8th, 2016 @ 8:06 pm

      Hi Maeve! I don’t usually provide nutritional information, because so many of the tools available vary in their results. Yet from what I can figure, this recipe comes out to just under 100 calories per cup.


      • Boopsie Burda — April 8th, 2016 @ 5:12 pm

        This soup is really good, I have lost 10 pounds, however the bit about using organic is crap.

    I was wondering to if you could add or substitute cauliflower for the ginger? Thanks for posting! I will definitely be trying this!

    Is the apple cider 100% necessary. I don’t have any. Can I substitute for something else or omit it

    Most cook from scratch moms & grands have been making this for generations..:-)
    I still use cken thighs tho.. You NEED the bone broth & fat to make it truly good for you !!
    takes fat to loose fat, not just water weight :-0

    Hi! Great recipe thank you for sharing, I can not wait to try this out! 
    I tend to cook everything I eat pretty bland and I am wondering about the turmeric and ginger. How strong is their flavor in the soup? 


    • Kerri — October 15th, 2016 @ 3:31 pm

      It isn’t very spicy. In fact, I usually add more seasoning for more flavor. Not a huge fan of ginger myself so I was unsure about using it but it’s really tasty.


  53. JoEllenposted July 11, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    Love this soup. However, to cut sodium, I used a quarter of low sodium chicken stock and a quarter of filtered water and I eliminated the extra salt. Also added a cup of chopped kale. Yum!

    • Sommer — August 9th, 2016 @ 9:11 am

      Hi Jennifer! You can make this is the crockpot, but I might soften the onions and celery in a skillet first so they don’t end up with a rubbery texture.


  58. Teresa Bozovichposted August 19, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    The soup is delicious! My son has football weigh-in tomorrow and has been on a strict diet for 2 weeks. This was a very welcomed treat, as opposed to eating another salad. 10yr old aproved…then it’s going on our meal list!

    Made this soup as directed, except didn’t have any sea salt. This soup is delicious. To think it is also healthy is just a huge plus. I have eaten only the soup for 24 hours. So anxious to see what the results are about 3 or 4 days from now. Hubby loves the soup also, so I will be making an additional batch tomorrow. Fingers crossed that this works to get a weight-loss jump start. Delicious,  healthy, and effective would make this a win-win-win 


  63. Dominiqueposted September 5, 2016 at 11:14 am

    I just made this last night and had to stop myself from getting a second helping it was so good! I followed the recipe to the letter, except I only used 1lb of chicken instead of 1.5 (that is how it was sold in the store). The ginger and spices make you feel like you’re detoxing, which is amazing. Filling, savory, healthy, I couldn’t ask for better. This is one for the books and one I will be sure to make over and over again this winter. Thanks!

    I have made something similar to this, but am interested in trying this recipe. I have a question though. When you add in the salad and nuts can you use a dressing on the salad like oil and vinegar?
