Quick Soup Idea for Leftovers

Is it just me, or is there something really unappetizing about leftover shredded chicken sitting in the fridge. After a couple days all I want to do is throw it away and go out for Indian food. But here's a better idea, and you can use any spare veggies you have laying around:

Mexican Chicken Soup

  • leftover shredded chicken (1 lb)
  • an onion (sliced)
  • a couple celery stalks(chopped)
  • a couple carrots(chopped)
  • mushrooms (if you have them)
  • chicken stock (a couple cups)
  • white wine (a splash)
  • tomatoes (fresh or canned)
  • spices (i use ground cumin and some chile powder)
  • fresh cilantro and cheddar for garnish
  1. Caramelize onions in a tablespoon of butter
  2. Add celery, carrots, mushrooms- cook until tender
  3. Deglaze with chicken stock
  4. Add wine, tomatoes, chicken
  5. Simmer 30-60 mins.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste, Garnish with cheddar and cilantro

  1. This sounds delish! I am pondering what to do with the many pounds of shredded green enchilada chicken in my fridge and this is perfect. I so wish that a) you delivered to oakland and b) i could afford the tasty paleo meals on your menu. :) Keep it up!

  2. Hi Alyssa,

    Thank you for checking out the blog! I will let you know if and when we start delivering to Oakland :)

    Have a great day,
