It's hard to find low-carb soup, so I decided to invent one and it's really good. I use Portuguese linguica or Mexican chorizo for the spicy sausage.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken & Spicy Sausage Soup (Low-Carb)

10 cups water
3 breasts of chicken
2 oz spicy sausage
1 cup diced celery
1 cup sliced carrots
3/4 cup diced onion
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for Chicken & Spicy Sausage Soup (Low-Carb)

  1. Boil chicken in the water with onion, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper until cooked through (about 1 hour over medium heat.)

  2. Remove chicken breasts from water and shred or dice the chicken into bite-size chunks, then put the chunks back into the pot along with the tomato paste, celery, carrots, and sausage. Let simmer over low-med heat for about 30-45 minutes; stirring occasionally.
