With Leeks & Onions

Quick & Easy Chicken Soup Recipe:

If you are a soup lover, this one is for you. This easy chicken soup recipe is for every household. This recipe does not require a lot of prepping. You can either cook the chicken right before you make this chicken soup, or you can use leftover, pre-cooked chicken. Total cooking and prep time is about 35 to 40 minutes.

The guests of The Healthy Diet Paradise love this recipe.  Read DeeDee's story of how she uses this recipe for the hair loss diet.  I get a lot of feedback for this recipe, because of the tremendous ease of preparation and the delicious flavor.

You do not have to add all of the ingredients. If you wish, you can add kale instead of leeks. You can leave both the kale and leeks in or leave them off. It's your decision to choose how you want this chicken soup recipe prepared. Always experiment to your own tastes for best results.

Be sure not to over boil your vegetables in this decadent soup.  Leeks and onions are a super food, and over cooking will kill valuable nutrients in this masterpiece.
