If there's one recipe you need in your repertoire it's my gluten free roast chicken soup recipe.
This is proper soul-food, and just like your mumma always told you, is the best thing to have when you are feeling unwell!
The base of my gluten free roast chicken soup recipe is a home-made chicken stock - though you could use a shop-bought gluten free stock if you're short on time!
Once you've made you chicken stock, this gluten free roast chicken soup can be whipped up super quick!
It's perfect for batch cooking, can be frozen and is also a fab way to make sure nothing goes to waste from a roast dinner.
The best chicken soup recipe
I've been making this gluten free roast chicken soup recipe for years and so it's about time I put it on the blog!
Of course you could use this as a base recipe too if you wanted to mix things up a bit.
You could try adding some chilli or ginger to the mix for a kick, or why not include some sweet potato too?
For something a bit luxurious, why not add a dash of double cream before serving too?
It's really down to your personal taste, which is what I love about this recipe so much.
Making my gluten free chicken stock
The first thing you need to do when making my gluten free roast chicken soup is to make your own gluten free chicken stock.
This is a great way to use up the leftovers from a Sunday roast.
The easiest way to make a gluten free chicken stock is as follows:
- Pick all the meat from the chicken carcass and set aside.
- Add a selection of veg trimmings to a large pan - I typically use carrots, celery and onion - and some garlic cloves and fresh parsley also add a lovely flavour.
- Add the chicken carcass, then enough water to cover it all. In this recipe I used about 2-3 litres.
- Season heavily with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and then simmer, with a lid on, for around one hour.
- Strain the stock using a colander. Discard the leftover veg and carcass. You can then refrigerate this stock for around 5 days or freeze for up to six months.

- Approx 2 large handfuls roast chicken (removed from the bones and shredded)
- 2 large carrots (finely chopped)
- 3 celery sticks (finely chopped)
- 4 cloves of garlic (crushed)
- 4-5 small potatoes (chopped into small pieces)
- 2 litres chicken stock
- 1 Knorr vegetable stock pot
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Salt and pepper
- Make the chicken stock as per the above instructions in the blog post.
- Melt the coconut oil in a large, lidded pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add all of the vegetables and fry for 4-5 mins until they start to soften. Keep stirring while you do this.
- Next add the shredded chicken and stir.
- Add the (hot) stock to the pan, stir well and then place the lid on. Bring to the boil then turn down to a low heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, until the vegetables are soft.
- Remove the lid, stir in a stock pot until dissolved, and then season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve up straight away or portion up and freeze.
This soup will keep in the fridge for around 3 days or in the freezer for up to six months. If you don't want to make your own stock you can substitute with shop-bought chicken or vegetable stock, as long as it's gluten free.
