Chicken and Vegetable Soup

Chicken Veggie Soup

Who here loves Italian food? We LOVE it at our home and mostly because it’s enjoyed by the entire family. The flavors are delicious and there are just so many different recipes that fall under this category that we can never get sick of it. Although we love all the pizzas, lasagnas and pastas we are also fans of the Italian soups. And since soup season is just around the corner, we wanted to share a recipe for Italian Chicken Vegetable Soup.

Today’s recipe is very simple and very flavorful. It includes chicken, carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, chicken broth and cheese. It takes a little bit of time to cook, but it’s very easy to make. I tend to have all these ingredients on hand which means we can make it in a jiffy. I also love that it’s not a super thick or creamy soup. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love a bowl of creamy chowder, but sometimes those soups can be a little too heavy. This Italian chicken soup is much lighter and lower in calories, so I feel like I could always be in the mood to eat it!

How to make Chicken Vegetable Soup:

Like I said, this Italian chicken soup does take a few extra minutes, but it’s still done in less than an hour. And the steps themselves are extremely easy. Believe me, the extra time is well worth it with how amazingly flavorful the soup turns out!

  1. Start by heating the olive oil in a large pot. Add the cubed chicken and cook until cooked through.
  2. Add carrots and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients (besides cheese) and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 25-30 more minutes.
  4. Top with parmesan cheese and serve warm.

Chicken Italian Soup

Like many other soups, you can change up the ingredients according to your liking. Onions, mushrooms, or spinach may be great additions. We even think substituting the chicken for sausage would be great or even adding some pasta shells would make it even better. We liked the soup as is, and we think you will too because it really is so easy and tasty.

  1. Thank you for sharing this very healthy recipe! Zucchini in tomato sauce always tastes a little weird to me. Do you think replacing it with spring onion is a good idea?
