Chicken and Vegetable Soup Recipe

Chicken and vegetable soup recipe

Popularly soups can be divided into two groups: CLEAR and THICK soup. Clear soups are generally more healthy as they have the least amount of calories while thick soups usually contain a lot of starch, sometimes cream, and other high carbohydrate ingredients. Personally I am a big fan of Clear Soups.

This chicken and vegetable soup is not only mouth watering & colourful, it’s super healthy and easy to make too. This is made with clear strained broth.

A meal in itself that you can serve with crusty bread. This ultra-flavorful Chicken Vegetable Soup is all you need to stay warm and healthy in this cold weather.
