  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup of chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 2 raw chicken breast, cubbed
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 4 oz of dry lentil pasta - we used 1/2 box Tolerant Foods
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 bags Bonafide Provisions chicken broth, defrosted (or 2x 24 oz boxes of bone broth)


  1. Rinse and chop onion, celery, and carrots.
  2. Add olive oil, garlic, onions, carrot and celery to a large soup pot and sauté on medium being careful not to burn your garlic. Stir until your onions and celery are tender and your garlic is fragrant (about 8 minutes).
  3. Season your cubed chicken with the salt, garlic, oregano and parsley. Move your veggies to one side of the pot, and add another tablespoon of olive oil so you can see the hot oil at the bottom of your pot.
  4. Add your chicken to the oil and let it cook for 2 minutes and then stir it all together.
  5. Cook the chicken and veggies for another 7-8 minutes on medium heat, stirring to prevent burning. You want your chicken to be mostly cooked, and then add your chicken bone broth and bring it to a simmer.
  6. Once simmering, add pasta and chopped broccoli to the pot. Continue cooking until your pasta is tender but your broccoli isn’t overcooked. I’ll let it simmer for five or six minutes and then turn it off because the pasta will continue cooking in the hot water without overcooking the broccoli.

Tip: For extra greens, add a handful of spinach to the pot and stir to wilt before serving.
