Allergy-Friendly Recipe: Healthy Lazy Soup

Our dietitians pulled together holiday recipes that exclude six of the most common food allergens. This is a great one for when you don’t feel like cooking. Recipe courtesy of Bethany Doerfler.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 6-8 cups Gluten Free chicken broth
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 4-5 carrots
  • 4-5 celery stalks
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 small potatoes (scrubbed and peeled)
  • 1 crock pot


  1. Dice onions, potatoes, carrots and celery.
  2. Add together in crock pot with chicken and broth.
  3. Allow to simmer for 6 hours.
  4. Chicken will be easy to shred with two forks.
  5. Add back into the crock pot half of the shredded chicken (you will have extra shredded chicken).
  6. Add rice for extra calories.
  7. Use the extra shredded chicken for chicken tacos, creamy pasta, or snacking.
