The Best Chicken Soup You’ll Ever Eat

The Best Chicken Soup You’ll Ever Eat
The BEST chicken soup you’ll ever eat is the best homemade nourishing healthy soup when you’re feeling under the weather. Packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients like ginger, turmeric, garlic. BEST SOUP EVER!
Whenever I’m sick I love a good, soul soothing soup. In fact, did you know that soup can actually help to reduce the length of your cold? Amazing news, because I bet this will be one of your favorite soups of all time.
And yes, caps were necessary there — I really needed to get my point across about how damn good this soup is.
The best part isn’t just how delicious it is, but also how wonderful the anti-inflammatory, cold-fighting ingredients are! Let’s talk about them:
Ginger: Great for digestion and a powerful anti-inflammatory agent to use in recipes.
Garlic: Truly the best when you’re sick. Garlic is full of anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. That’s why we use 6 cloves of garlic in this soup. That’s right, you’re going to sick this cold’s ass.
Turmeric: Super trendy and very good for you. Best when consumed with a black pepper to help for optimal absorption.
Chicken: We’re packin’ this recipe with protein too — and guess what? The chicken actually cooks in the soup broth, leaving it tender and making it easy for you!
Fresh herbs: Rosemary & thyme add additional flavor in this recipe.
Couscous: Besides the veggies, the couscous is really the star because it helps to thicken the broth and keep the soup hearty. You’ll want to use an Israeli or pearl couscous in the recipe. It just provides the perfect texture for the soup. This is what pearl couscous looks like. I also know that they sell it at most Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods!

The BEST chicken soup you'll ever eat is the best homemade nourishing healthy soup when you're feeling under the weather. Packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients like ginger, turmeric, garlic. BEST SOUP EVER!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 large carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated turmeric (or 1 teaspoon ground turmeric)
  • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped thyme, stems removed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup pearl or Israeli couscous
  • 2/3 cup frozen peas
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Place a large dutch oven or pot over medium high heat and add in oil. Once oil is hot, add in garlic, onion, carrots and celery; cook for a few minutes until onion becomes translucent.
  2. Next add in grated ginger and grated turmeric. Saute for 30 seconds to let the spices cook a bit, then add in chicken broth, chicken breast, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper.
  3. Bring soup to a boil, then stir in couscous. You’ll want the chicken to be covered by the broth so make sure you stir them down to the bottom. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer uncovered for 20-30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.
  4. Once chicken is cooked, remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a cutting board to shred with two forks. Add chicken back to pot then stir in frozen peas. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
NOTES
To make vegetarian or vegan: Use vegetarian broth and sub 1 can of chickpeas for chicken.
To make the soup gluten free: You could use a gluten free couscous if you can find it, or try quinoa! The cook time will remain the same.
