Easy Leftover Chicken Soup
Homemade chicken soup (using leftover chicken!) is so much fresher, tastier, and better for you than canned. This leftover chicken soup recipe is naturally gluten free.

medium yellow onion
about 4 cloves
leftover cooked chicken
chopped or shredded
Chop the chicken, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic.
Heat olive oil in a soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat until shimmering, then add the carrots, celery, and onion.
Saute for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garlic and continue to cook over medium heat for another two minutes.
Add the chicken broth, water, chicken, and spices to the pot. Stir, increase heat, and bring pot to a boil.
Skim, if necessary (if using chicken breast, you may not have to). Stir, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove and discard the bay leaf, and serve.
Go light on the salt, because the broth is already salty. You can always taste and add a bit more at the end, if desired.
