Whether it's a blustery fall day, a case of the sniffles, or just your average Monday, chicken soup is exactly what you need. There's just something magical about that combination of steaming savory broth with tender bites of chicken, isn't there? No matter what happened during the day, by the time I'm scraping the bottom of the bowl, my shoulders have relaxed and I'm feeling like myself again.
Classic chicken noodle, spicy chicken gumbo, white chicken chili, or any other way you want to spin it, chicken soup spells comfort in bowl. Here are our ten favorites.
There are so many ways to spin a chicken soup, you could make nothing but chicken soup all winter long and probably be perfectly happy! I grew up on chicken noodle soup, and this is where I naturally gravitate when the leaves start to change color. But once I get my fix out of the way, I'm on to other things.
Let's talk about this white chicken chili — I have vowed not to let another fall go by without making a batch. Licking the screen just isn't going to cut it anymore. I'm also thinking that the white bean and chicken sausage stew would be great to make ahead and freeze for busy weeknights. I love the 30-minute chicken posole, too. It comes together so quickly, and with its fresh and crunchy toppings, it's a perfect summer-into-fall soup.
Chicken soup: it's what's for dinner. I, for one, couldn't be happier.
