Tag Archives: chicken soup. healthy chicken soup


This is one of my favorite soups to make. It is healthy and so easy. Seriously it is the most seamless way to make soup, it takes just an hour to make and if you buy everything pre-cut from Trader Joe’s so there is no prep time. It is my convenience go to dinner. Served with toasted Ezekial bread with lite butter and crushed garlic, it is the ultimate healthy impostor for comfort food, minus the high calories and fat. I make mine on the spicy side.

Here is the recipe supported by photos to show how easy it is, and if you cannot find a Trader Joe’s to buy all of the ingredients you could substitute the same ingredients from another grocery store.


Chopped onion, shallots and garlic, saute’ this in three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 

add 1 packet of Mirepoix mix( chopped onion, celery, and carrots), saute’ until carmelized about three minutes.

add 1 packet of frozen pepper strips, mix all ingredients together

add 3 cans of fire roasted tomatoes

add 1 packet of roasted frozen corn

add one can of organic black beans ( lower in sodium I find)

add pre-cooked low sodium just chicken and 1-2 cartons low sodium vegetable broth

Mix all ingredients together, spice with a little sea salt, ground pepper, and cayenne to taste

Cook for one hour on low and garnish with fat free sour cream or Greek yogurt.
It is one of our favorite dinners to make, and you can change it up if you please. So easy and quick and perfect for my weekdays when I am working and working out. I hope you enjoy adding a little spice to your weekdays with my Easy Chicken Chili Soup.
Happy Eating 


Soups, they are so simple and satisfying. I love to make soups, one pot wonders that make it easy to eat healthy and there is always an abundance for the next day. Warm your heart and soul with my healthy yet delicious chicken soup with grains and vegetables and remember to share with someone you love. Soups are the perfect autumn dinner and make the chill a little more tolerable. Paired with some crusty whole grain bread and a simple  spinach salad mixed with oil and vinegar and you have such a well rounded and healthy meal. Manga’

It was so delicious, especially with oyster crackers. James ate three bowls. I am making soup this evening, and I just purchased a crock pot so I will be experimenting with my new cooking toy soon.
