Servings 2 people


  • 6 oz. Chicken Breast
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 medium Yellow Potato peeled and cut into small cubes, about 1/2" in size
  • 1 Carrot peeled and chopped (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 Celery Stalk chopped (about 1/3 up)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped Yellow Onion
  • 1 clove Garlic minced
  • 2 cups Chicken Bone Broth*
  • 2 tbsp. dry White Wine
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1/2 tsp. White Miso Paste
  • 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped Fresh Parsley or 1/2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup Whole Milk


  • Season the chicken breast with a pinch of kosher salt, freshly cracked black pepper, and Italian seasoning.  Set aside for about 10 minutes to come to room temperature.
  • Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat.  Cook the chicken breast until browned and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and tent it with foil to rest.  Once it is cool enough to handle, shred it or cut it into small, bite-size pieces.
  • While the chicken breast is resting, add potatoes, carrots, celery, and onions to the potAdd a splash of chicken bone broth and a pinch of salt, and scrape the bottom of the pan to stir any browned bits into the vegetables.  Cook until very tender, about 7-8 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic, and cook for 30 seconds.  Pour in the rest of the broth and the white wine, and bring the pot to a boil, stirring frequently.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer (low), and stir in the bay leaf, Italian seasoning, white miso paste, paprika, parsley, milk, and shredded chicken.  Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Taste the soup and season with more salt, pepper, or herbs if desired.  Stir it together, and simmer for another 35-40 minutes until thickened.
  • Remove the bay leaf and divide between two bowls. Serve hot!


*I love Chicken Bone Broth for the flavor and protein, but you can substitute low-sodium chicken broth if you prefer!
