Today, I’m sharing an Easy Chicken Soup Recipe made with chicken bone broth. I make so much bone broth, and I have learned that all of you do too!

But other than drinking it, what can we do with it? In a previous video, I shared Five Ways to Use Bone Broth, and this is one of those ways…make soup!

Why is Bone Broth Important?

If you’re new to my site, first of all…Welcome! But you may be wondering why so much emphasis on bone broth? The reason is that bone broth is so nutritious because it is rich in collagen.

Collagen is good for our bodies. It’s great for making our hair thick, our nails strong, and our skin smooth. But most importantly, collagen soothes our gut lining. If our gut is healthy, we’re better at fending off illness. So soup made with bone broth is a perfect way to work this wonderful elixir into our diets.

An Easy and Customizable Recipe

This easy recipe provides the basic building blocks for creating a delicious Chicken Soup using bone broth. But don’t stop there!

With this formula, you can create any type of chicken soup you like. Add a different mix of vegetables, spices and/or herbs, and you’ll make it your own. And you’ll never grow tired of it because you can make it different every time!

Perfect for Cooler Months

Chicken Soup can be wonderful at any time of the year, especially when you have a cold! With Fall here and temperatures cooling, this is the perfect time for a warming bowl of comfort. So be sure to try making soup with bone broth, and let me know in the comments below how you made it to your liking.

  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 2 Carrots, peeled and chopped, 1" pieces
  • 2 stalks Celery, chopped, 1" pieces
  • 1 tsp Sea salt homemade vegetable bouillon can be substituted
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • 1-2 cups Shredded chicken
  • 8 cups Chicken bone broth


  • Add the butter and olive oil to a large soup pot.
  • Once butter has melted, add onions and sauté until translucent but not browned.
  • Add salt, black pepper, and red pepper (if using). Stir well.
  • Add carrots and celery, stir well, and sauté for a minute.
  • Add shredded chicken. Stir well.
  • Add bone broth.
  • Bring to a boil, then turn down to medium, cover, and allow to simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Ladle into bowls and serve.



If you want to add grains or pasta to this soup, I recommend cooking them separately, unless the entire amount of soup will be eaten in one sitting.
Add the cooked grains or pasta to the individual serving bowls and then ladle the soup over the grains.

    I made this with leftover thanksgiving turkey. Made the bone broth from the carcass. It was perfect!
    I did add a handful of freshly chopped parsley at the end, and served each bowl with a lemon wedge. That gave it a bight kick:). Thank you, Mary!
