Looking for a great Detox Soup Recipe?

A good friend of mine is the founder of Neo Snacks, a producer of organic, paleo, vegetarian, and gluten-free snack bars that happen to taste amazing.

A couple years ago she introduced me to a cleanse concept she and her husband follow on occasion when they need a reset in their health and diet. It’s a Chicken Detox Soup Cleanse from the book Perfect Weight America.

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!

Detox Soup Cleanse

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 may 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.

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. In theory, 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!

My Chicken Soup Recipe

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. Why not give it a go?

Chicken Detox Soup

So what’s in MY Chicken Detox Soup?

  • For protein we have chicken breast and some chicken broth. 
  • The vegetables in this soup are onions, broccoli, carrots, celery, and peas. 
  • And for all the flavoring we have olive oil, apple cider vinegar, parsely, ginger, garlic, crushed red pepper, ground tumeric, salt and pepper.

If you see any vegetable in there that you don’t like, switch it out for something you do like.

How to Make Chicken Detox Soup

  1. Set a large sauce pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil, chopped onions, celery, ginger, and garlic. Saute to soften. Then add the raw chicken breasts, broth, carrots, apple cider vinegar, crushed red pepper, turmeric and sea salt.
  2. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer, 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.
  4. Once the broccoli is tender, taste, then salt and pepper as needed. Serve warm.

  1. I’ve been trying to eat clean for about a month and a half and seemed to have plateaued so I started looking for something new to kick start it back into gear. I love chicken noodle soup, so I gave this try. It did not disappoint! I didn’t even miss the noodles! I did not follow it for all three meals. I had my regular breakfast of eggs and grapefruit. I have not stepped on the scale yet, but I did eat it up in three days so I’m making a bigger batch today and will try to eat it all three meals to see if I lose any weight. If I remember I’ll check back in after a week to share my results. But it was delicious. Even my husband liked it – which he is a complete food snob and never likes anything I make.  I’m not worried about the sodium since I am eating clean and I’ve heard you should add more salt to your diet cause natural foods don’t have as much sodium as your body needs to feel good.  I’m not sure how accurate that is. I have been waking up energized and keeping that energy all day.  Also I’d like to add it was delicious each time I heated it up in the microwave. Tasted fresh and not soggy at all. I didn’t have time to freeze any. It was gone that fast! Thanks for the recipe! 

  2. Love this recipe!  Not interested in detox, but it’s a super-healthy boost.  Warning: if you are a novice, it takes much longer to prepare everything when you are hand chopping everything. At least an hour to prep.  But well worth it because the soup is delicious.  Thank you for sharing!

  3. My husband wont eat any vegetables if he can see them…. can this soup be blended down and still have its nutritional content?


  4. I absolutely love this soup. I have a question…what is the true calorie count…one print out says 91 calories for 1.5 cups…the other print out says 199 calories for 12g???

    • Hi There,

      It’s hard to give exact nutritional values on recipes, because all the tools available to us give slightly different readings. The nutritional facts listed as at the moment are coming from a newer built-in plugin, and should be close to accuarate.

  5. Hello, can I eat this as a weight loss as well as detox, I am needing to shed a lot of weigh in the next month and a half.

  6. I dont normally leave comments but I’ve made this soup like 20 times. I make huge batches and freeze containers to pull out when I want some it tastes so good and you can put ANY vegetable you want in this broth. Thank you!

  7. I used for vegetables: onion, Can green beans, mushrooms, and cabbage. I had no ginger so I added power ginger. Rotisserie chicken. And completed the rest of the recipe ingredients and amounts. Less cook time. Yum! Thank you!

  8. We were just looking for a soup recipe and this was perfect! Tasted so good and very filling!

  9. I’m so lost why the sodium is so high! The broth maybe? any ideas?  looks so healthy I want to make it but I have to watch sodium :(

  10. This looks amazing! but almost 500mg of sodium per serving seems high for this recipe! I can’t figure out where all the sodium is coming from? such a healthy recipe! help? :( 

    • Use low-sodium or unsalted chicken broth and you can eliminate most or all of the sodium! Just add in your desired amount of salt to taste.

  11. Wow, this is really good! I’ll definitely be making it again – thanks for the recipe!!!

  12. Hey Loved this soup. Made a double batch and added some cabbage, parsnips and cauliflower. It is addictive. Thank you

  13. This recipe might be my all-time favorite soup recipe. So good!

  14. This was great…I had to swap out/omit veggies to make it low FODMAP so I used carrots, bok choy, edamame, parsley and a can of fire roasted tomatoes. Plus I added a homemade curry powder that gave it a spicy kick. Next time I want to add some extra greens like kale or collards. Good with a little avocado diced on top (probably not great for the cleanse). 

  15. Could you tell me a bit more about the directions to this cleanse ? 4 to 5 days of only eating the soup?

    • Hi Jenn,

      Yes, just soup the first few days, but as much as you want. Then you can add in lean salads with grilled salmon in the evenings, if you want to add on a few more days of soup throughout the day.

  16. This is a perfect soup to make after the holidays! Delicious and healthy! 

  17. Such a simple soup to make and great for your health!!!

  18. What an easy, delicious soup! I used rotisserie chicken and it was fantastic!

  19. First soup made from scratch. Very doable.  Great tasting and healthy! 

  20. This is one of my absolute favorite recipes ever. I love how you can add or omit anything! I add sweet potato and cabbage to mine, but really you can use any veg in your fridge! Thank you so much for this! It’s light but filling, and I can eat this for days and not get tired of it. :)

  21. I just made this soup. Love just the hint of ginger and pepper flakes added a little zip.
    Its a keeper will make again.
    Thank you for sharing

  22. It’s really good. I thought I was going to miss the noodles but nope! 

  23. I make this soup for my husband and I whenever we are sick. It is the best for just rejuvenating you after getting knocked out from a cold/flu. It pairs really well with beer bread or corn bread too!

  24. Best soup ever!!!!

  25. This was absolutely delicious!  It’s a new staple recipe for me!  Thank you for posting.🙂

  26. Can you covert this to a crock pot recipe?

  31. Made a large batch, kept in jars in frig. Taste great each day. Will make more to help continue my Food plan. Plain on rotating other soups of the same. This soup has inspire me to eat more nutritious soups!

  32. used homemade broth and used fresh hot pepper’s. Just fantastic. Great flavors with plenty of STUFF (normally I don’t like soup). Looks pretty in Jar’s.

  33. I just made this soup following this recipe almost exactly. I forgot to get apple cider vinegar but it was still delicious without it. Full of flavour from all of the vegetables, ginger, garlic and turmeric. I also added bean sprouts and lentils. Very Filling and I’m planning to have it for the next few days.

  34. PROS: Easy to make, may be one of the most delicous and healthy soups I have ever had.  CONS: One big con: Only good for one day. The next day the soup did not taste good and a lot of ingredients went in the garbage. I made the recipe as it was written as I planned to eat it for a few days. Actually, even several hours after making it, I decided to have another bowl as it was so magnificent for the first bowl; already it was loosing its flavor. SUGGEST make it for a fairly large group so it is finished in one meal. 

  35. Emm this Yummi taste i like it

  37. SO GOOD! I make this all year round especially in the summer for a light nourishing meal. I make my own chicken broth with leftover roasted chicken and then make this soup. UGHMAZZING!

  38. Apparently this is an amazingly delicious recipe …
    Thank you very much , for the recipe!

  39. Love this recipe. I make this weekly and eat it for lunch & dinner during the week. It has definitely help with my weight. I use my instant pot instead of stove top method. I add more seasonings than what is listed as well as lemongrass. I omit the peas, but also add kale, collard greens, mustard greens anything green. I layer them all in my instant pot. Pressure cook for 15 minutes & it comes out perfect.

  41. Wow this is fantastic! I used homemade broth, added mushrooms and swiss chard, omitted the celery. Yum yum yum. No strong vinager taste if anyone is worried about that. Looks beautiful, healthy

    • I just made my second batch……my husband absolutely loves it! It’s so eau and fast…..i cubed the chicken instead of leaving it whole and shredding it after….next time we go to it produce store, we are going to try different veggies.

  43. Thanks for sharing! Does it freeze well?

  44. This looks so good! I’ve never had broccoli or ginger in chicken noodle. I’m excited to try it!

  45. This is very delicious, i need this becouse next week we are family go to gathering in south east US, i will cooking this yummie,, thanks was sharing with us,,,

  46. My family has eaten this soup every week for the past couple months and we haven’t gotten sick of it! I usually make a batch on Monday and we eat it for lunch or dinner for a few days. This soup is very flavorful and filling and was a great winter staple (we are still making & eating it well into spring!) Can not say enough about this soup. Everything is so fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Thank you for this recipe!!!!

  47. This soup is sooo delicious! I love how it’s packed full of flavour and doesn’t feel like you’re eating a healthy soup. I will definitely be making this again.

    I followed the recipe exactly apart from replacing the brown onion with a leek instead.

  48. Absolutely LOVE the soup!!!! Just had a couple of questions regarding the cleanse. How badly will having smoothies for breakfast affect the cleanse?? My girlfriend and I both work everyday at 5:30am so  making a smoothie for breakfast is easier for us to take on the go. If it is bad to have smoothies on the cleanse, are there any alternative breakfast options for people on the go???

  49. This Chicken Detox Soup tastes great!

  61. This soup was amazing!! Even my meat and potatoes husband ate it!! I’m not a big onion eater.. is there something I can substitute it with, like onion powder or would you just omit it completely?? Thank you for sharing this recipe!! 

  62. Thanks for publishing this recipe. I was pleasantly surprised. I was searching for a healthy soup that didn’t contain cabbage. I have no idea why I made it because 1) I thought the ingredients were too simple to be flavorful, 2) I’m not a big fan of ginger and 3) I am honestly not sure what turmeric tastes like. I will definitely make this again and exactly as written. Next time, though, I will pay closer attention to the broccoli. It overcooked while I was waiting for the chicken to cool down.

  63. This is my first time making this soup. It is wonderful and while I absolutely LOVE the broth, there is far too little of it. I need to increase the broth but don’t want to water down the flavor. Any ideas on how to capture the flavor with chicken broth? Is it just ginger, ACV & red pepper flakes giving it that sour-ish, spicy flavor? If anyone has a recipe, pls share! TIA

    • Hi Karen!

      It sounds like it simmered a little too high. You can certainly add extra chicken broth or water and the beginning of the simmer time, so it is infused with flavor. Or you could also, turn the heat a little lower next time and see if you are satisfied with the amount of broth.

  64. Lovely !!!!! Your blog is amazing and recipes are must try .Best wishes

  68. Hello!! I just have a question for breakfast, you also have soup??

  69. I don’t understand the part about cooling the chicken, but it’s a great recipe that I’m going to keep in the rotation. I added some curry powder and some extra cayenne for some heat.

  70. Wonderful

  71. I did try the soup, but avoided eating the carrots and broccoli, it was quite delicious.

  74. Such a great soup! I’ve made it exactly as the recipe instructs, and with a few changes. Both delicious! Last time I used leftover turkey and squeezed half a lime in it. I also used homemade bone broth instead of store bought chicken broth. Really nice recipe. 

  75.  One of my very favorite recipes, make it over and over again.    Like to add in mushrooms.  Everyone I make this for loves it. Cannot recall how many times I have shared this recipe. Thanks for the reminder in today’s post… Time for another batch. 

  76. This looks amazing and I’m going to try it this week. Thanks for the recipe!

  77. Absolutely delicious

  78. This looks really good, and my hubby and I are about to start a Keto diet (agian). I would really like to do this cleanse first. My question is, can I use chicken thighs instead of breasts? Will that affect the cleansing ability?

  79. This is a great recipe. I’d use it as a chance to educate your readers as to why you suggest the ACV and homemade bone broth using grass fed bones and organic veggies, pure water over organic chicken broth (which still may have natural flavors in it and who the heck knows what that really means! The packaged broth may also not necessarily use grass fed bones, the org. chickens may still have been fed soy, and the water they use may still be fluoridated and chlorinated). The ACV pulls the nutrients and the marrow from the bones right into the soup. Kettle and Fire is a great company and scrupulous with the products they use but Swanson would not be as much. The recipe is delicious.

  80. Where is your green pot from? I love it!!

  81. There’s so many reasons to love this soup! It’s loaded with all the good stuff and great flavor. 

  82. So much flavor in this soup and it’s so healthy! Perfect for cleansing. 

  83. Could this be made in the pressure cooker?

    • Hi Dani!

      In theory, yes, but I have never personally tried that. I actually don’t think it would cook any faster, when you factor in the time the pressure cooker takes to build pressure before cooking. However, if you want to give it a go, I would probably sauté the veggies, then set to Pressure Cook High for 15 minutes. :)

  84. This is right up my alley! So healthy and delicious!

  85. oh my goodness, so good! thank you for the recipe!

  89. I felt a tickle in my throat and, since it’s flu season, started taking preventative measures. This means eating a lot of soup. I’ve recently become a big advocate of knowing exactly what I’m ingesting so buying the usual Campbell’s Chicken Noodle was not an option; however, I didn’t want a recipe that required a slow-cooker as my patience was limited when sick. I came across this recipe, and boy… did I find a winner!

    I’ve made this soup twice in two weeks! I was even more excited that a large number of vegetables in this replaced noodles, so I still had a great veggie intake. Staying full was not an issue, and I noticed a little bit of weight loss too! I’m so glad I have a homemade go-to recipe when myself or anyone else around me need a soup remedy! 5/5!!!

  90. Love how filling this is, but still good for you! So delicious on a cold day!

  91. I love everything about this recipe!

  95. This soup was great! I was nervous that the hubby wouldnt like it because of all the veggies and the fact that it’s healthy and detoxing. Lol but he loved it, and so did the brother in law who only eats meat and potatoes. they had 4 large helpings!! I added some lemon juice and lemon pepper and it made for great flavor :) It’s 3 days later and my husband is still complimenting the soup

    • Hi Mickey,

      In therory, yes. If you are trying to do a detox cleanse, using this soup, you eat it at every meal for several days. However, you can also just make a pot whenever you want for a light healthy meal. :)

I’m trying to eat healthier cause my son has IBS, Alepicia and gets hives.  I tried a recipes the other day and it sucked. This is what usually happens when I try healthy meals. I decided to give this one a try and I LOVED it. I love how the red peepers and the apple cider vinegar add a kick to it.  This is definitely a recipe I would recommend.  My husband and son work weird hours, so I can’t wait to see what they think.  I can’t wait to try some more of your recipes thanks so much.

  113. This soup was SO awesome! I added a little more crushed red pepper, but otherwise, it’s a winner!
    Thank you!

  114. I made the soup using the directions to a tee and it is very good. Next time I’ll add more crushed or green peppers as I love spicy food and a half teaspoon of turmeric. Thanks, Misty and Angel’s dad (My furry feline children).

  115. This soup is absolutely DELICIOUS.  The only tweek I made was using bone in chicken breasts with the skin on.  It wasn’t greasy and It definitely added more flavor. 

  116. Easy, healthy and delicious!  I will be making this wonderful soup again.

  117. This was so good! I never thought I would like Chicken soup without noodles or rice but then I obviously wasn’t adding the right spices. This had so much flavor. Thank you so much!!
    I used Bone broth and subbed cut up fresh green beans for the peas. I also used 1/8 tsp ground red pepper instead of the crushed (I hate getting one of those crushed pieces stuck in my teeth)

  118. Best Soup Ever! This soup is a testament to what a difference using fresh and healthy ingredients can make. It tastes amazing! I eat it for one meal every day now and I love the way it makes me feel. Try it!

  150. This was excellent! I just made a big ol’ pot and could have had several servings. I followed the recipe exactly and it’s super tasty. It’s going in the rotation. Thanks Sommer!

  151. A family member gave me this recipe. I thought it sounded weird with the ginger and vinegar, but I love to eat healthy so I tried it. I have made it three times now, and it is so delicious! My husband loves it and actually requested that I make it again. I love taking the leftover for lunch and know that I’m eating super healthy. This will be in the rotation quite frequently. I’m eating it right now!

  152. This soup is freakin’ amazing! Thank you for the recipe! 

  153. Absolutely love it! I’m not much of a celery person, left that out, and used a leek instead of onion. It has a wonderful aroma as well as taste. I made 2 pots the first week…..the first batch went home with my grown children once they sniffed the air upon their arrival at my home! That Says It All!

  154. This was an incredible chicken soup. The flavors were wonderful and you can add veggies or subtract, depending on your preferences. It lasted in the fridge for days and only got better. It was truly delicious and I will make again.

  155. Ok…10 days for cleanse, correct? How many times a day? Breakfast, lunch and dinner? What can I drink with this cleanse? Thank you

    • Hi Jessica,

      For all the details you’ll want to get the book mentioned in the post. However, you pretty much eat the soup as many times a day as you are hungry, for ten days, and drink only water and unsweetened herbal tea. The book mentions adding in salads and grilled salmon the last few days for dinner. This helps you get a little extra healthy fat. Good luck!!

  157. Just made it tonight but with homemade chicken broth and mushrooms added. And just a tip: if you don’t like tasting/eating ginger directly, you can just boil it as a few pieces so it’s easy to remove or avoid later. I had forgot and minced it and I cringe when I eat it….
    But still a delicious soup, I’ll get through it.

  158. This soup has worked wonders for me every time I’ve made it. Not to be gross or anything, but it had me headed to the ladies’ room about once an hour after I’ve eaten it. This is totally not a bad thing! Felt lighter overall and slimmer over the span of a couple days. My husband, on the other hand didn’t have the same cleansing experience as me. But, he loves it for the flavor of the delicious broth. 

    I make this soup every time I need a reset or to make up for a long weekend of some hardcore cheating. And it’s so good that I look forward to having it every time. 

    Thank you, Sommer, for sharing!

  159. Made this yesterday, and just got started…  DELICIOUS!  I think I can easily stick to this for ten days…  time will tell.  And BONUS:  my whole family loves it too…  I thought my 3 teens/young adults would shy away merely by the word “detox”.  But no!  All 3 are totally into it, and super mega bonus: hubby too!  It’s disappearing fast, so I will head back to the store today and try the southwest version.  I’d really like to keep this soup as a staple in the house for those future days when you just don’t know what to eat.  THANK YOU for sharing this recipe!  Can’t wait to see the results.

  160. Hi Kataya,

    Look for the red “Click Here For Recipe” button at the bottom of the post. :)

  161. Question: Can you make this in a crock pot? What would the variations be for the recepie if so? Also can I leave out the red pepper and still get the same results? Thanks. 

    • Hi Katie, Yes and yes! Just make sure to sauté the onions, garlic, and celery in a pan before adding the ingredients to the crock.

  162. This is like the best chicken soup I have ever made. Better than the local Vietnamese place near my house. I followed the recipe but took out peas, carrots, added spinach and cauliflower. So easy to make and so flavorful! And healthy too!

  163. Hi,

    I haven’t made this yet, but it looks great! I was wondering if there if nutritional information is available?
    Thank you.

  164. I just made this soup.  Delicious!  I added a little more garlic just because I love garlic.  I am not doing a cleanse, pre se, but I am trying to eat less carbs, and this looked like a great soup for that.  Really, really, delicious!

  165. Hi Dr. Alter,

    There is a “Click Here For Recipe” button at the bottom of the post. That way, you have the recipe at the top of the page when you are ready to made it. :)

  169. BEST SOUP I’VE EVER HAD! My boyfriend even ate it…and he dislikes soup. I, of course, did not tell him it was a “detox soup”. Just a good old fashioned chicken soup. haha. Wonderful. I can’t wait to try more recipes from you!

  170. Im thinking about doing this soup as one of my meal prep meals & change up the veggies very other week. Its super delicious

  171. This is the best soup I’ve ever made.    When I saw it I thought I would give it a try for a few days.  That was 6 weeks ago.   It is now my dinner every night during the work week.   Well worth trying.

  173. Love this soup, just wondering how the detox, weight loss portion works. Breakfast, lunch, supper, how much soup to be eaten and for how many days

    • Hi Bethany!

      You would have to read the book for the full breakdown and explanation. But because the soup is so lean, you can eat until you are full. I’ve done this multiple times now and never really measure my soup intake. Hope this helps!

  174. I just made a double batch and have had my second bowl today. It’s delicious! I replaced the frozen peas with chopped fresh zucchini and left out the red pepper flakes. I also added a little more turmeric. I also chopped my chicken pretty rather than shredding it- it was taking too long. Plus, I thought it would be more evenly spread throughout the soup. It is pretty thick- not much broth. Should I add more broth or water?

  175. Made this tonight and did not deviate from the recipe, which is unusual for me! It was fabulous! The whole family loved this! Even my picky puppy was drooling and begging for some! I think fresh ginger and garlic are a must.
    I recommend doubling the recipe to have leftovers. It is definitely on the rotation list. Next time, I will make enough to freeze! Thank you!

  176. I made this today. So yummy!

  177. Today is my first day enjoying my soup!  I looove it! I’m super busy so having my food already prepared is great.  I love soup so I hope ? I don’t get bored.  I plan to make another pot of it soon!

  188. I made this soup today. It’s fabulous! I only added 2 ingredients: spinach and leeks. I thought it was going to be bland with no seasoning on the chicken, but it’s flavorful. I will make this again. My family likes it. 

  189. I just made this and it was delicious! I was worried I was going to still feel hungry after eating it, but I feel full and guilt free! I will be making this again! 

  190. question! when you say “add chicken”, am I adding cooked chicken? raw chicken? shredded chicken?

  198. I have made something similar to this, but am interested in trying this recipe. I have a question though. When you add in the salad and nuts can you use a dressing on the salad like oil and vinegar?

  199. Loved this soup, but did anyone have a problem with having really bad diarrhea after eating it? I assume this is part of the detox  … But it’s been terrible. :-(
