Put avocado oil into the pot you are going to make your soup on. Turn heat on and let oil get warm.
Open up your package of chicken spray with avocado oil, sprinkle with salt & pepper. Place that side of chicken down into hot pan to brown. Now spray the top side of chicken with avocado oil and season with salt and pepper.
Slice up celery while chicken is browning. Turn the chicken over to brown the other side and add in celery. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Chop up your carrots while the other side of chicken is browning with celery.
Once both sides of chicken are browned pour in your broth and hot water. Add carrots. Add juice from 4 limes. Bring to a boil. While waiting cut up any toppings you want.
Once water is boiling your chicken should be perfectly cooked. This is a good time to taste your soup and add in the remaining salt, if needed.
Take out your cooked chicken and place on cutting board. Turn heat down on soup so veggies don't get too soft. Debone the chicken and cut up.
Add your chicken back to your soup, turn heat off, add in spinach. Your soup is hot enough that your spinach will cook fast and not get wilty.
Your soup is ready to eat
Pour into bowls or large mugs and add your toppings!

I used pasture raised chicken. Pasture raised chickens are allowed to roam land, eat insects, and live off the land as they should. They are not feed a vegetarian diet and pumped full of antibiotics.
