From my personal experiences, cleanses usually involve expensive herbal supplement kits from the health food store, or a whole lot of juicing.

However this cleanse is different. It’s a nourishing homemade soup with fresh chicken, loads of veggies, and ginger, to boost your metabolism and immune system, as well as remove toxins to help your body to work as it should.

It is gluten free, dairy free, and paleo to boot.

Chicken Detox Soup food

Although this soup is meant to be used as a 10 day cleanse, and you will probably be ready for a change after so many days and bowls of soup, it is a completely sustainable food. Meaning, you could live off of it. With protein, vegetables, vitamins, and minerals, it provides more nutrients than most of the world’s population receives on any given day.

So don’t be afraid to give it a try!

Chicken Detox Soup vegetables

In the book, the suggested cleanse structure is to eat the soup alone for several days. It’s so low in fat and calories, you can eat as much as you want. After 3-4 days you may introduce green salads with raw nuts in the evenings. By the end of the cleanse you still eat the Chicken Detox Soup all day, but can add salmon to your evening salad for a little extra healthy fat.

Lt. Dan and I have done the Chicken Detox Soup Cleanse several times and each time it helps us shed water-weight, a few extra “real” pounds, and sets a precedent for continued healthy eating.

Since we’ve started, several friends have also tried the Chicken Detox Soup and have had the same results.

The original recipe in the book calls for all organic ingredients including a whole chicken, and several veggies that aren’t my favorite to have floating in soup. We’ve made the soup as recommended several times, yet Dan always complains about the recipe. Over time I’ve developed my own rendition that we feel is easier to enjoy for the length of the cleanse… No picking chicken bones and skin out of the soup. No mushy veggies.

My Chicken Detox Soup follows the same principles, yet is tastier and can be made in less time. Even with the changes, it still works like a charm.

Yield: 8-12 bowls ¦ Prep Time: 20 minutes ¦ Cook Time: 35 minutes


  •     1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  •     2 quarts chicken broth
  •     1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  •     3 cups broccoli florets
  •     2 1/2 cups sliced carrots
  •     2 cups chopped celery
  •     1 1/2 cups frozen peas
  •     1/4 cup chopped parsley
  •     3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  •     3 tablespoons fresh shredded or grated ginger
  •     2 tablespoons olive oil
  •     1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  •     1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  •     1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  •     Salt and pepper


  1. Set a large sauce pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil, chopped onions, celery, ginger, and garlic. Saute for 5-6 minutes to soften. Then add the chicken breasts, broth, carrots, apple cider vinegar, crushed red pepper, turmeric and 1 teaspoon sea salt.
  2. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 20+ minutes, until the chicken breasts are cooked through. Then remove the chicken with tongs and set them on a cutting board to cool.
  3. Add the broccoli, peas, and parsley to the pot. Continue to simmer to soften the broccoli. Meanwhile, shred the chicken breasts with two forks, and stir it back into the soup. Once the broccoli is tender, taste, then salt and pepper as needed. Serve warm.
