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. For a bit of extra flavor, you can always add fresh garlic over powdered garlic. Fresh garlic does have some anti-viral effects but it mainly just tastes incredible.

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.
