Healthy Chicken Soup Recipe


Your grandmother was right, chicken soup and bedrest really can cure almost anything. The next time someone you love is feeling under the weather, try our healthy recipe for this long time favorite.

It has all the things you'd expect to find in traditional chicken noodle soup, but we've lightened it up so you can have that second bowl without feeling guilty. We packed this healthy recipe with lots of fresh vegetables, so it's not heavy or greasy. If you want to make the soup even more figure friendly, use all white meat chicken.


1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, minced
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup celery, sliced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano flakes
3 cups chicken broth, reduced sodium
2 cups potatoes, peeled, diced
1 1/4 cup chicken, cooked, chopped
1/2 cup whole milk
1 cup noodles, yolk-free, enriched, uncooked
