Chicken Vegetable Salsa Soup

Ingredients
  • Several Chicken breasts
  • 2 quarts (32 oz) Chicken Broth (no sugar in ingredients)
  • 1 to 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 medium to large yellow onion chopped
  • 1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes (plain or fire roasted)
  • 1 jar salsa (no sugar in ingredients)
  • Add any of the following vegetables:
  • 2 cups fresh (snap to bite size pieces) or frozen green beans
  • 2 small zucchini (cut into bite size pieces)
  • 2 to 3 stems of broccoli (peeled and cut into “coins”)
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • Fresh chopped parsley or cilantro based on your preference. (about ¼ cup.)
  • Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Ground cayenne pepper (optional for more heat on your chicken breasts)
  • Lime wedges when serving.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Salt and pepper both sides of chicken breasts. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper for more spiciness. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove and cool. (Start baking your chicken before you begin your soup preparation.)
  2. Place 1 quart of chicken broth in a large sauce pan. Add chopped celery and onions. Add 1 can of diced tomatoes and 1 jar of salsa. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes (while you are chopping the other vegetables)
  3. I always save the stems of fresh broccoli to use later in a soup. For the broccoli use a potato peeler or knife to remove the tough outside skin of the broccoli. Then slice the stems into “coins” about ⅛ of an inch in thickness.
  4. Add green beans and broccoli stems. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  5. Add 2nd quart of chicken broth. Add zucchini. Bring to boil. Turn off heat. (I personally don’t like to cook the zucchini very long otherwise it becomes too mushy.)
  6. Stir in fresh spinach. Sprinkle with the fresh parsley or cilantro. Taste and season with salt and pepper
  7. Cut chicken breasts into bite size pieces. Store in a separate container to be add measured amount to soup servings.

  • "My Experience with Goshorn Wellness Center has been outstanding! I worked with Barb Goshorn and followed her advice for the Shape ReClaimed program. Not only did I lose weight, but I reduced my medications and my arthritis pain is minimal. I feel great!!"

  • "HI! I'm writing on behalf of my husband Bob who I "dragged" to see Barb on the referral of a friend at work. My husband has been overweight for years with no continued success on diets. He started the shape reclaim program and has lost almost 100 pounds in 8 months - AMAZING!!!! He looks and feels so much better! He is currently off ALL medications! And the best part - he doesn't snore anymore! With Barb's help we learned how to grocery shop and read labels, how to cook and eat healthy. Barb is so enthusiastic and supportive. The entire office is very friendly and professional. Meet Barb and change your life!"

  • "I can’t thank Barb enough for all her assistance in helping me achieve my goal weight!

    I never thought I would get back down to the 120”s! I had tried everything that was out there. I had a drawer full of useless weight loss products that probably sis me more harm that good, not to mention I spent a lot of money on them, all of which was a total waste!

    Not only is Barb a delight to talk to, I have learned so much from her as to how to eat, what to eat and when to eat. Even my husband lost 20 pounds just by following my new found healthy eating habits!

    Thank you Barb!!"
