Creamy Ground Chicken Tomato Gluten Free Soup

My Creamy Ground Chicken Tomato Soup is one of the most loved recipes on Talking Meals.  So, I have revamped it to be Gluten Free!  You get all of the creamy goodness, the hearty chicken, the deep tomato flavor, and the spinach in a delicious gluten free soup!

COOK YOUR GLUTEN FREE CHICKEN TOMATO SOUP!

This gluten free soup recipe starts with white meat ground chicken.  Super lean.  But, cooked the right way, also Super Flavorful.  You want to sear the meat in a soup pot – and I mean SEAR.  Sear it so that you create  a lot of brown stuff in the pan…brown meat, with caked-on brown drippings all over the bottom and sides of the pan.  Brown = Goodness.  Brown = Flavor.  These pictures do not do ‘brown’ justice.  When you start to worry it has gotten too brown…brown it some more!  Ok, you get the picture 🙂

Next, add in the onion and garlic and cook them down with the beautifully browned meat.  Then, add in the tomato paste and oregano and mix in.  Let it cook down and get more browned!  This recipe uses tomato paste vs. tomato sauce or tomatoes because I LOVE the depth of flavor you get and the sauce is primarily creamy with this deep deep tomato flavor backdrop.  We are layering deep flavors on top of deep flavors.

Stir in the cornstarch and mix to fully combine.  Let cook another few minutes to once again…get browned.  Then add in the broth and stir until fully combine and the soup starts to thicken.

Cover and simmer on low heat for for 30 minutes, stirring every 5-7 minutes.  At the very end, stir in the spinach and turn off the heat.

I love to add a little something cool and tangy to a hot soup and a simple dollop of sour cream slightly stirred on top does the trick beautifully.

This is THE Gluten Free SOUP of Soups.  Creamy Ground Chicken Tomato Soup.  Try it this week! 😋

Creamy Ground Chicken Tomato Gluten Free Soup

    Note, you can also freeze this for cooking later!  Just place the chicken in a separate bag, then place the chicken bag and the other ingredient bag in the freezer for a later date.  If you freeze, you will want to make sure that you have the cornstarch, broth, and spinach available at that later date.
