Full of flavorful ingredients that help fight sickness and keep you warm, this chicken noodle soup recipe is one for the books. Here’s how to get started on yours!
- 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
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly chopped thyme, stems removed
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 cup pearl or Israeli couscous
- 2/3 cup frozen peas
- Place a large dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat and add in oil. Once the oil is hot, add in garlic, onion, carrots, and celery; cook for a few minutes until onion becomes translucent.
- 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.
- 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.
- Once the 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.
