Chicken soup

Billie has been a little under-the-weather this weekend.

So I decided to make this chicken soup from "Paleo on a Budget."

I love this recipe, because it packs in so many veggies that we probably wouldn't eat alone. Plus chicken broth has healing powers, right??

• About 1/2 shredded chicken meat ( I used an entire rotisserie chicken, shredded)
• 1/2 batch of homemade chicken stock ( I used about 60 oz. of chicken broth)
• 1/4 of a big butternut squash, cubed (I used 1/2 a sweet potato)
• 2 stalks of celery, chopped
• 1 medium onion, diced
• 3 carrots diced
• 1 lemon {juiced}
• 1/4 bunch parsley
• Salt + Pepper
• Butter {or some other kind of fat}

How to:
• In a soup pot get your butter heating, then add in your chopped onions, celery and carrots. Let those cook for a few minutes.
• While those are going, peel and chop up your butternut squash and add it into the pot.
• Add in your chicken meat, stock, lemon juice, parsley, salt + pepper.
• Cover and let simmer for at least an hour.

Now if the non-paleos in your family are wanting some extra carb action, have some rice on the side for them or even boil up some egg noodles to add in!
