Ingredients & Variations

Chicken & vegetable soup is not only the best soup recipe to have in your recipe box, but it is also super versatile!

  • In place of chicken, try substitute ground beef, sausage, or even mini meatballs?
  • Bacon bits go great for a little extra flavor without so much meat.

How to Make Chicken Vegetable Soup

  3. Add veggies and chicken. Simmer until heated.

Tips for Success

  • Add your favorite seasonings. If you have fresh herbs (parsley or basil), stir them in just before serving.
  • As this recipe uses cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works well in this recipe) add the chicken near the end so it doesn’t overcook.
  • If using fresh vegetables in place of frozen, add them along with the broth so they have time to cook through.

Notes

Add your favorite seasonings. If you have fresh herbs (parsley or basil), stir them in just before serving.

As this recipe uses cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works well in this recipe) add the chicken near the end so it doesn’t overcook.

If using fresh vegetables in place of frozen, add them along with the broth so they have time to cook through.

If adding pasta (or rice) add to each serving bowl if you will be keeping leftovers as the pasta can become soggy if stored in the fridge.
