Quick and Healthy: Chicken Soup

Homemade soup perfect for winter months and super easy to make! You can add whatever vegetables you like, making it another great way to up your daily veggie intake in one fell swoop.  Below is one of our favorite healthy combinations.

What You Need:

  • Chicken Broth (1 can)
  • Chicken Breast (1 lbs +)
  • Carrots (2 full)
  • Onions (1 large)
  • Celery (1 stalk)
  • Sweet Potato (1 large)
  • Spinach (we just dump in a bag of the frozen, chopped variety and it works wonderfully)
  • Basil
  • Garlic
  • Dash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

What to Do:

It really couldn’t be any easier. Just chop all ingredients into bite-sized pieces, and throw them in a pot with a can of chicken broth and about another can’s worth of water.  Add seasonings such as basil and garlic, and maybe a dash of olive oil for some healthy fat.  Then put a lid on it and let it cook on low heat for about 45min – 2 hours.  Serve, and enjoy!

(Note:  serves 2 VERY big bowls.)

    A simpler version of the above recipe that we did when we had almost no food left in the house. Soups are a great way of finishing off whatever you have left in the fridge!
