Easy homemade chicken soup is a must make during cold winter months. Chopped carrots, celery, onions, and herbs with chunks of white meat chicken is the definition of comfort!
You can count on classic soup recipes like beef barley, split pea, and baked potato soup to keep you warm when there’s a blizzard outside.
We always turn to chicken noodle soup to keep us warm, but sometimes, we just want to go back to basics and leave out the noodles!
There’s comfort found in offering a sick relative a bowl of soup when they’re battling a cold or the flu. But why? Is chicken soup healthy?
Onions, carrots, and celery all have healing properties, such as vitamin c and k. Chicken offers protein, and chicken broth helps reduce inflammation.
True to the flavors of fall and winter, this soup is enhanced with a sage, thyme, and poultry seasoning roux to make it into an easy creamy chicken soup recipe.
Seasoning chicken soup is simple! Salt and pepper goes a long way, but for a tasty chicken soup recipe, we’re adding poultry seasoning, thyme, and sage to give it a classic chicken soup flavor profile.
If you think of it, this recipe has almost the same flavor profile as stuffing does! Poultry seasoning, thyme, and sage just go so well together!
Making soup is done in no time with a few simple steps.
Soup usually consists of white meat. Chicken breast is always a great option.
I always say, use what you have! If you’re running short on time, grab a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and use the meat from it to make this easy soup recipe.
To thicken soup, you have to add a thickener agent. We’re adding a flour roux as well as heavy cream to help make this soup recipe thicker and creamier.
If you’re making a keto chicken soup recipe, you can make the roux with Xantham Gum (a little goes a long way).
Typically, if stored with a tight fitting lid in the refrigerator, this soup will last 3-4 days.
If you know it won’t be eaten during that time, portion the soup into airtight containers and freeze for up to one month.
If you’re reheating fresh soup, you can either microwave a single bowl for a minute or until hot, or pour the creamy soup into a pot to reheat until warmed through.
To reheat frozen soup, place container covered, with soup into a bowl with water to thaw out, before pouring into a pot or slow cooker and reheating until warm.
The first thing that comes to mind is a side of fresh baked bread with soup. Rhubarb bread, country white bread, or honey wheat bread are great to dip into this creamy chicken soup recipe!
And for dessert, why not a classic sheet cake recipe? It’s a comforting end to a delicious meal.
