Healing Chicken Noodle Soup



When you are feeling under the weather there is nothing like a hearty, comforting bowl of chicken noodle soup to make everything right in the world. This soothing soup recipe contains cold busting ingredients like turmeric, garlic, lemon, fresh herbs and bone broth to heal the body and soul and get you back on your feet in no time. And even if you’re not sick, it’s a delicious recipe that you’re whole family will love!

To make this soup a 30 minute meal I opted to use my favorite timesaving ingredient… a grocery store bought rotisserie chicken. But, if you have the time you can always roast up a chicken on your own or or simply boil chicken breasts or thighs and then shred and add to the soup. Whatever floats your boat. I like to use my homemade chicken bone broth for extra health benefits but store-bought chicken broth also works great. Bonus- if you use a rotisserie chicken or whole chicken you can always make your own bone broth at home by combining the chicken carcass with veggie scraps and herbs and cooking covered with water in a slow cooker for around 12-18 hours on low. When it’s done simply strain out the solids, season with salt and pepper and you have yourself some delicious, healthy chicken both broth ready to go for all of you winter soups and strews! Enjoy!

Directions

  • Heat olive oil in a large dutch oven (or heavy pot with a lid) over medium to medium-high heat until hot and shimmering.
