While trying to incorporate new and healthier habits into your lifestyle, it’s always important to have food on hand that is satisfying and comforting. Soup is a great way to feel full — and for you to be full of nutrients, too.

I love making this chicken soup because it simplifies my meals. Once I make a pot, I have something tasty at the ready and it’s freezeable, too. So if you live on your own, you can package up the extra for a future busy week. Or if you have a household full of hearty eaters, you’ll always have an easy-to-thaw lunch or dinner on hand.

Try this simple but delicious chicken soup and make sure to freeze what you don’t eat in individual containers.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 chickens, already cooked only white meat
  • 3 quarts chicken broth
  • 1 Tbs garlic minced
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4 oz carrots chopped or sliced
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Start with two already roasted chickens. You can roast them yourself or purchase ones that have already been cooked.

  2. Take all the white meat chicken off the bone, chop to desired size chunks and set aside in a large bowl and discard bones (or save for a stock).
  3. Peel and chop the onion. Peel and slice carrots. (Again, to save time, you can purchase already sliced vegetables.)

  4. In a large pot, heat up the broth and add the garlic, onion, carrots, salt, and pepper. If you have other vegetables on hand (parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, celery, etc.), feel free to throw some in.
  5. When it begins to boil, turn flame to a simmer and add in the chicken.
  6. Let simmer for about 30 minutes.

  7. Divide into freezer containers for future meals or serve hot to your family!
