Chicken Pepper Soup for the Crock Pot - Low Carb, Paleo Friendly Gluten and Sugar Free Recipe

Awe yeah...

Some peppers, some spice and then it's all every one be nice to you because you are the cook and what not. Awe.... yeah... respect to the cook! :)

RESPECT! Amiright?

It's okay, it's your kitchen, you own it! Own that kitchen and get your cook on! Holla!

Now that we've established the owners rights of the kitchen and you, said cook have your game face on,
 lets work your apron and crock pot shall we?

Chicken Pepper Soup

What You'll Need:
1 - 3lb whole chicken (or 4 - 6 chicken breasts cut into cubes)
3 cups chopped bell peppers of all colors
1 medium zucchini chopped
1 cup onion chopped
1/2 cup water
3 jalapenos diced
1/2 c chili powder
1 - 6 oz can of organic tomato paste
2 cups beef stock
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon cumin
1/2 Teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 Teaspoon celtic sea salt

Place all items in your crock pot on High for 4 hours or on Keep Warm for 8 hours.
I do recommend stirring every so often.

About 30 minutes before you plan on eating, use tongs (and care!) to pull the chicken pieces from the soup. Let sit for 20 minutes (or set in the fridge for 10 minutes to save yourself from burning your fingers!)

Once the chicken has been cooled, pull the meat from the bones and put in the soup.

***You can hold onto the carcass and skin to make homemade chicken broth... just a thought. ;)***

It's time to eat! I add a bit of sour cream and chili pepper flakes to my own dish of soup, 
but you feel free to garnish however you like to how it suits you! :)

This soup would also be good to make when the family seems to be fighting a cold. The chili powder will help get their noses running and the broth you'll naturally make while cooking the chicken pieces will help them get better faster! I've heard a cup of broth a day keeps the doctor away! ;)
