Ingredients * 1 tablespoon coconut oil * 1 onion , chopped * 2 garlic cloves , minced * 2 chicken breasts , cut into 1-inch chunks * 2 large carrots , chopped (about 1 cup) * 3 celery stalks , chopped (about 1 cup) * 1 cup fresh or frozen green beans , chopped into 1-inch pieces * 1 teaspoon dried thyme or fresh * 2-3 teaspoons fine sea salt * freshly ground black pepper * 4 cups of water Instructions 1. In a large stockpot, melt the coconut oil over medium heat and gently saute the onion, garlic, and chicken for about 5 minutes, until the onion is tender and the chicken is starting to lose its pink color. 2. Add in the carrots, celery and green beans, thyme, 2 teaspoons of salt, a few grinds of black pepper, and 4 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and cover the pot with a lid. Let the soup simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. 3. Season with additional salt (I usually add another teaspoon) and pepper to taste, and serve warm. Leftover soup can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
