Homemade Thai Chicken Soup

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest homemade paleo thai chicken soup

I love making chicken broth in the slow cooker (see my easy slow cooker chicken broth recipe here), and after having some amazing Thai Chicken and Rice with Chicken Soup in Portland, I had to go make a Paleo version to enjoy at home! It’s a simple process – place everything into the slow cooker and leave overnight.

    Sounds like a wonderful broth. What do you do with the rest of the chicken? Any recommendations?
