    Omg. This recipe is so simple but such a keeper. Added into my rotation for sure. I used thighs because it’s what I had and it was still good.

    Delicious! We made it for company who were also doing the whole30 and we devoured it!

    I have cooked chicken breasts already, can this be made on the stove top? How long would it have to cook for?

      Sure! I would sauté the onions in some cooking fat until translucent, add everything except the coconut milk and simmer 20 minutes. Then stir in the coconut milk and cook another 5-10 minutes until heated through.

    This is one of my new favorite soups! I don’t follow a paleo diet, but I do try to cook healthy meals and avoid processed foods. That being said, this soup is delicious with a little parmesan or parmesan crisps on top. Also, my kids aren’t fond of the tomato and onion pieces, so I will sometimes take out the chicken, puree the soup with an immersion blender until smooth, and then add the shredded chicken back in. My kids love it this way. Thanks for sharing an easy, healthy, and delicious recipe!

      That’s a great idea! My kids don’t like tomato chunks either. I’m with you on the Parmesan. I follow a mostly Paleo diet, but I still ❤️ cheese. Thank you for sharing! I’m so glad you liked it!

    Could this be made in an instant pot?

    • Kristi Barnes

      Definitely! I tried it and made a couple adjustments. I used 16 oz. chicken broth and a 14.5 oz. can of tomato sauce. I doubled the salt and left everything else the same except that I added the coconut milk at the very end right before serving. It turned out great!

          I just used the poultry option. I think it’s 15 minutes. Just make sure to stick a thermometer in the thickest part of the chicken pieces before you shred them to ensure they reached at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

    I am wondering if I was to add cooked shredded chicken to the slow cooker, would you still cook the soup for the 4-6 hours? I see your recipe says to cook until the chicken is a certain temperature, I didn’t want to have to take the chicken out to shred, I would rather have cooked chicken already mixed in. If so, how long would I cook the soup for if I added cooked chicken instead?

      You could still cook it on low with cooked, shredded chicken. I’ve done it with rotisserie chicken. I’d say no more than 4 hours on low would be optimal so the chicken doesn’t get overcooked and tough. If you have to leave it alone all day, you might even just wait and put it on the stovetop when you get home and simmer for 45 minutes or so.

    What chicken broth did you use since most aren’t whole 30 approved. Did you make your own?

    I first wanted to say that I love a lot of your recipes and have really enjoyed utilizing them on my Whole30 rounds! This soup recipe is off the charts!! I have already made it twice this round, and made it tonight with Costco whole30 compliant pulled pork instead of chicken. I do add an extra can of diced tomatoes and use my immersion blender to make it into a creamier tomato soup base before adding the meat back. I plan on making this AGAIN next week for quick lunches since the weather is quite cool. This and your Zuppa are A++ recipes!!!! Thanks for your great content and healthy recipes for my family.

      Thank you so much! ☺️ The pulled pork and extras tomatoes sound amazing! This is one of my favorites!

    Could almond milk be used instead? My husband is not crazy about coconut milk when I use it, he’s not crazy on the flavor.

    • Kristi Barnes

      Sure ☺️. You might need a little more of it since the coconut milk is pretty thick. Just mix in a little at a time to make sure it doesn’t overpower the tomato flavor.

    Love This! My daughter proclaimed it was definitely comfort food. I used fire roasted tomatoes. Will be making this again for sure!

    Hello! 🙂 I am not too fond of chunked tomatoes, would you recommend me putting my diced tomatoes in the food processor and then add them to the soup mix? Or just leave out the diced tomatoes all together? Thank you 🙂

    • Kristi Barnes

      I completely understand. ☺️☺️ either blend everything before you add the shredded chicken back or use a can of tomato sauce instead.

    Do you know approx. how many cups of diced tomatoes I would use to reach the 14.5 ounces? I am just afraid of adding too much and making it too watery since they are undrained. Thank you so much! 🙂

      Hello! You should be fine substituting about two cups of freshly diced tomatoes along with their juices.

        Thank you! Is it okay if I use canned diced tomatoes vs real tomatoes?

        • Kristi Barnes
          Posted at 12:04h, 26 February Reply

          Oh yeah. That’s fine. 14.5 oz is just a little shy of 2 cups.

    Hello! I am making this tomorrow morning, I only have a organic “tomato basil” pasta sauce.. Will this taste okay or should I get just a plain canned tomato sauce?

    • Kristi Barnes

      That should work just fine. You’ll just need less salt in the end and maybe a couple less ounces of broth.

    Can you add potatoes to this recipe? And if I did how long would they need to cook for?
