Quick and Easy Paleo Chicken Soup

  • Author: Jen
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 6 people 1x


Delicious and simple paleo chicken soup.


  • 4 cups chicken broth*
  • 3 medium carrots ( )
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 4 large cloves garlic
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt* ( )
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried turmeric (optional)


  1. Add the chicken broth to your Instant Pot and press the Saute function. Leave the lid off (this gets the pot hot and will take less time to heat up when you close the lid to cook).
  2. Chop the carrots, onion, celery and garlic as small or as big as you like. I use a garlic press for the garlic. Add vegetables, chicken, herbs and spices to the Instant Pot.
  3. Close the lid to the Instant Pot and make sure it is sealed. Press the Manual function and the “-” to get to 15 minutes and let it do its thing.
  4. After time is up, you can quick release or slow release the pressure. Top with salt and pepper as needed and enjoy!


*When using a broth that contains salt, one teaspoon is generally enough salt to add. With unsalted broth, you may need to double the amount.

Here is a cost effective way to have an abundance of shredded chicken for the week.

You can also add one pound of raw, ground chicken instead of pre-cooked chicken. No need to brown it first and the cook time stays the same. Ground turkey is also delicious.

Add a celery root for a paleo potato vibe. Or just add a potato if you tolerate them.
