I’m Not Allowed To Be Sick Chicken Soup Recipe! (Gluten Free)

Print page



So everyone knows Mom’s not allowed to be sick and I imagine Dad feels the same way…..what’s worse I woke up sick today and I went to the store and guess what I could not find?  I could not find a healthy, whole foods gluten Free Chicken Soup!  Of course this always happens when you feel miserable and I knew I needed something quick.  I was tired, frustrated, and hangry, and of course sick on top of it all.

I was struck with an idea I need to come up with my own Emergency “I’m Not Allowed To Be Sick Chicken Soup Recipe!” and of course it has to be gluten-free!


Oh don’t get me wrong there was gluten-free lentil, and gluten-free cream based soups etc…but the one thing I wanted was just chicken broth and veggies and it was nowhere to be found.  This soup comes together super fast and it’s delicious so once I ate some I started feeling so much better!


So I thought well this is an emergency so I am going to make a huge pot of soup and I am going to freeze some for the next emergency.


The worst part is I was hungry so I didn’t have time to rehydrate my dried vegetables or to thaw out my frozen chicken broth I wanted this soup yesterday so here is my last-minute, tired,exhausted Emergency Gluten Free Chicken Soup Recipe!

If I”m sick it feels like an emergency to me and I wanted something that would come together quickly and taste amazing!

NOTE:  This is not a low-fat soup it is designed to replace meals while your sick and keep your strength up and make you feel better!




  • 2 Boxes Gluten Free Chicken Broth
  • 1 TBSP. Chives (Dried or Fresh) I used dried.
  • 1 TBSP. Dried Minced Onions
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2 large cans of chicken breast meat (if you have meat around the house use that first)
  • 2 bags of frozen veggies (soup mix)
  • Season Salt (gluten-free/msg free)


  • You need a large pot and a cast iron skillet
  • Take 1/4 of the stick of butter and place it in the bottom of the large soup pot. (put heat on med)
  • Take all but a quarter of the rest of the butter and melt it in the cast iron skillet (place on low to med heat)
  • as the butter melts pour out the frozen veggies in the cast iron skillet
  • as the butter melts in the soup pot pour 2 boxes of broth in the pot
  • salt and pepper veggies and broth
  • once veggies are cooked up place them in the soup pot including all the butter
  • add chives, minced onions too
  • last drain the two cans of chicken and place them in the cast iron skillet with the last quarter stick of butter
  • Once the chicken is cooked up and seasoned add to the pot and stir!
  • At the last-minute add some season salt (gluten-free and msg free) to taste!
  • This recipe could very easily be canned for the prepared pantry as well!


I am hoping to feel better soon if you are down in the dumps or feeling sick hope this recipe is just the thing to end your winter doldrums quickly!

  1. I can make up a soup pretty fast using frozen and leftovers here. I make my own chicken and turkey stock after picking the bones as clean as I can. The meat goes into a ziplock type freezer bag. I add goodies like celery, onions peppercorns and such to the broth and let it simmer all day while I do other things around the house. I do add water to it so I get lots of broth but it’s on the stove long enough it isn’t watered down. After 7-8 hours for turkey and 4-5 for the chicken I drain it into another pot and park it in the fridge overnight. Come morning I skim off the fat for other uses and scoop the thick broth into freezer containers. These join the meat already in the freezer.
    When I want to make soup I run hot water over the container and pop the stock into a pot to thaw/heat up there. I cut up the meat I to bite size and toss I the melting broth, add any leftover veggies I have and add some frozen right from the freezer. I add any leftover pasta or rice to it and let it come to a slow boil for a few minutes, add any spices I feel like(sage in turkey is good!!) and serve.
    There you have my version or quick and easy!!! A little prep ahead of time and a freezer…and I’m off!!! Hope you feel better fast!!!!
