Chicken soup is a meal I turn to when I need a reset. Sometimes I can go a little overboard with my sugar and carb intake, especially around the holidays. When that happens, I will make a big pot of this soup and eat it for 3-4 days.

This chicken soup recipe is full of vegetables, turmeric and fresh ginger. To give it a protein punch, I added shredded chicken and white beans. If you are not a bean fan like my mom, just add extra chicken.

The addition of turmeric will give this soup a yellowish color but don’t be scared, it is delicious! Studies have shown that turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Tips for making Chicken Soup:

  • I recommend using chicken stock for this soup. The stock has a meatier and rich flavor that goes nicely with the vegetables. If you only have broth on hand that is fine to use.
  • You can make this a meatless meal by omitting chicken, add an extra can of beans and using vegetable broth.
  • Precut vegetables and a rotisserie chicken make this “SOUPER” (see what I did there?) easy to put together.
