Cook Time 40minutes
Servings 7(2 cup) servings
1white or yellow onionfinely diced
2cupsthinly sliced carrots
2cupsthinly sliced celery
3garliccloves, minced or pressedI use garlic paste
In a large soup pot (I use a 6 QT), over medium-high heat, add the olive oil, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and ginger. Cook for 5-8 minutes, while stirring occasionally, just until barely softened and very fragrant.
Stir the chicken broth, raw chicken breasts, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, and salt into the soup. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover with lid, and reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 30 minutes.
(while soup is cooking go ahead and chop up the broccoli and parsley, and get the peas out)
Take the chicken out of the soup and place it on a plate. Use two forks and shred the chicken or you can use a knife and chop it. Add it back into the soup pot, along with the chopped broccoli, parsley, and frozen peas.
Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover with lid (optional) and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until broccoli is softened.
Leftovers store great for 4-5 days in covered containers in the fridge. I heat leftovers up in the microwave for 2 minutes, or you can heat it up on the stove.
I use baby carrots for this recipe. No need to peel them and they are already small so all you have to do is slice them thin!Turmeric is a ground spice that you will find by the other spices and seasonings in the store.If the chicken breast are large go ahead and cut them in half before adding to the soup pot. I do this anyways, just to ensure the chicken cooks through in the cook time. I have used the flat leaf Italian parsley as well as the other curly leaf parsley (just called parsley in the stores). Either one works fine but I prefer the curly leaf parsley. For ease and convenience, get the tubes of garlic paste and ginger. You will find them in the produce section in the refrigerated area. You can also used jarred minced garlic as well.
