You’ll love these Classic and Cozy Chicken Soups Recipes

There’s nothing like a steamy bowl of chicken soup to warm you up on a cold day. Homey and comforting, the aromas arouse your senses before you even dig in with your spoon! I love all forms of chicken soup, and thought I would share my favorites. From the traditional, ever popular Chicken Noodle Soup, to variations including curry and rice or pasta, plus chowders and chili, you’ll have several wonderful, easy recipes to choose from!

Classic Soup Recipes with Chicken


Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Who doesn’t like Chicken Noodle Soup? I know it always makes me feel better, any time of year. Rich chicken broth is combined with carrots, celery, onion, fresh herbs – and of course chicken and noodles. (Tips for making perfect Chicken Noodle Soup are included above the recipe.)

Indian Mulligatawny Soup

Indian Mulligatawny Soup is a super-flavorful chicken and rice soup with the intriguing additions of curry powder, carrots, apple and thyme.

Corn and Chicken Chowder

Warm, creamy, thick and chunky, Corn and Chicken Chowder is the ultimate comfort food. My healthier version of this classic dish is still full of flavor, but has less calories, fat – and Weight Watchers’ points. Plus, it’s super easy to prepare with pantry ingredients.

White Bean and Chicken Chili is a fast alternative to traditional chilis – and is lower in calories and fat, too!


Italian Sausage Soup with Spinach and Orzo

Hearty Italian Sausage, Spinach and Orzo Soup is a cozy combination of flavors that that result in a phenomenal one-pot meal to please even your pickiest of eaters. My husband is half Italian, and this dish ranks at the tippy top of his soup list! Plus, it’s easy to prepare from items usually on hand (with limited chopping), freezable and delicious the next day, too.

Fun Chicken Soup Variations

Southwestern Chicken Soup has a slightly spicy, uber-flavorful broth combined with tender chicken, onion, peppers, garlic, lots of spices (cumin, chili powder, coriander), corn and a surprise ingredient – hominy! It’s finished with an Avocado-Cheese garnish that both adds color and ensures this scrumptious soup will satisfy any appetite.

Creamy Chicken Artichoke Soup

A Cheesecake Factory copycat, Creamy Chicken Artichoke Soup with Mushrooms is the perfect fall soup recipe: rich, ultra comforting and filling. Mild, nutty artichokes, meaty chicken, earthy mushrooms, sweet peppers, onions, garlic and potatoes are simmered in a white wine-broth-thyme mixture, then finished off with creamy milk and sharp Cheddar Cheese.
