Easy Healing Chicken and Vegetable Soup (AIP, Paleo. Whole 30)

Tell me this is not a familiar situation for you: you come home from work to sick child or spouse or even you are getting the sniffles. The fancy dinner you had planned for this evening is not going to work now. You have nothing else defrosted and ready to go, but you know you have to make something for the family. More importantly, you want to stop this cold/flu before it takes down the whole family.

This was the situation I found myself in yesterday. Enter my favorite kitchen gadget ever: Instant Pot. I absolutely love that you can just throw everything in it and not worry about defrosting things. You just turn it on, and walk away. Then, like magic, you have the most delicious meal ever and barely did a thing to make it.

This soup took only about 5 minutes to prep and about 45 minutes to cook (counting in pressure and depressurize times). Who doesn't want a big bowl of chicken soup when they aren't feeling so great? Plus, with homemade bone broth, ginger, and turmeric, this soup is ready to battle that cold away. I am unofficially calling it my "Get Better Soon Soup!"

Easy Healing Chicken and Vegetable Soup 

{aka Get Better Soon Soup}


  • 1 lb frozen chicken thighs
  • 3-4 carrots, peeled and chopped or sliced (your preference)
  • 3 celery sticks, diced
  • 2 shallots or ½ a medium onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled, and diced
  • 4 cups of bone broth
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric


  1. Add all ingredients to Instant Pot.
  2. Close lid and make sure it is sealed. Using manual, set for 25 minutes.
  3. When done turn off Instant Pot and either let the pressure release naturally, or if you are hungry manually release pressure.
  4. Remove chicken thighs, and shred with forks. Once shredded, and back to pot and stir to combine.
  5. Serve, enjoy and kick that cold to the curb! 
Makes 4-6 servings


  1. any suggestion on cook time without an instant pot?

    1. Good question Astrid! If you are looking at using a slow cooker, I would suggest 7-8 hrs on low, or 5-6 on high. If you are thinking stove top, I'd suggest bring it all to a boil, and then simmer for about 1 1/12 to 2 hours.

  2. Does it make a difference if you use refrigerator temperature chicken and not frozen?

  3. I'm proud to say now that I am finally at a place where I have found something that works for me. Almost four years ago I began seeing a classical Homeopath. I was put on a constitutional remedy by Dr God hands who reside in west africa, and I am amazed at my healing thus far. I will continue to post what worked for me and what didn't in more blogs to come (as this one is getting quite long... and I'm not writing a book on here - not yet anyway). This discovery has not only helped the way I practice, but it has also given me further insight into the world of Herbal  medicine. I came to know more about Dr God hands on Tv Station when I was taking my regular organic coffee at javamania coffee spot I watched the whole scene on how he uses Natural herbs to cure disease like Herpes, Hiv/Aids, Cancers,HPV,Men & Women Infertility,Melanoma, Mesothelioma, Multiple myeloma, Neuroendocrine tumors,Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma,Alzheimer's disease, chronic diarrhea, COPD, Parkinson's disease, Als And Diabetes, I was moved by his words then I took a confident step to contact him regarding my health condition Herpes & Prostate Cancer, He prepared his herbal medicine then sent it to me through Courier which I took as it's was instructed and I found myself healing symptoms are all gone I have being watching my health for years now and I finally confirmed that is a permanent cure like he told me at our first conversations so now I'm healthy and happy I purchase his herbal tea which I usually take in the morning before starting my day because it feels good to find addiction on natural herbs than medical drugs so is what I'm doing and loving it more and More to come later on blogs sooner I will be writing my book.I will advise you to contact Doctor God Hands Herbal Home for any kind of permanent cure and herbal remedy.Doctor God hands Email Contact: Also On Whats-App Calls: +2349057214220.
