  • .7 lbs of chicken breast about two small breasts - you can cut this into bite-sized pieces or wait until it’s cooked, then pull it out and chop.
  • .5 cup finely chopped carrot - thin slices is key!
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 4 cups chicken or veg stock
  • 1 cup kale chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice - or more if you like lemony soup
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt - I recommend flake salt because it’s the bomb
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup of water


  • In a medium or large pot, add the chopped onion, carrot, celery with chicken, vinegar, lemon, and bay leaf. Let simmer until chicken is cooked - about 10 minutes.
  • If the chicken isn’t cut up, now is the time to take it out and do that. Otherwise, move onto the next step.
  • Add broth, basil, oregano and let simmer a few more minutes.
  • Add salt and taste to your liking. You can add more salt, lemon juice or vinegar to suit your taste.
  • Once the broth is just right, add the chopped kale and stir in.
  • Turn off heat and let stand for a few minutes until kale is cooked (that won’t take long).
  • Serve and go!
