Curried Chicken Soup

I couldn’t be happier than in the fall as the weather starts to turn. That chill in the air means I’m in the kitchen cooking up a pot of soup.

All the soup.

Homemade soups, canned soups, doesn’t matter. I just love soup.

I started in August, that may be a little soon but the moment the PSL’s hit at Starbucks means it’s soup season.

This coconut curry chicken soup is a keeper, it’s a mild heat but you can kick it to medium heat by adding a little more curry powder (and maybe a squeeze or two of sriracha). I keep it fairly mild with my two children, but play around with the recipe and make it work for you.

I shared on Instagram a few weeks ago that I made a curry chicken noodle soup to freeze for when we get sick.

I can’t recommend this enough.

Make a pot of soup and double the recipe, freeze the extra batch for those nights where you’re too busy to cook or for when you get sick. Delicious chicken soup for the flu and colds ready to be heated in the microwave.

This soup is easy to customize with your favorite vegetables. White potatoes, sweet potato, and red bell peppers are all great additions!

This soup is a perfect way to use leftover chicken, and shredded rotisserie chicken works well too. Add about 3 cups of shredded chicken, in place of the breasts.

    1. Hi Jenna,

      I have it so the recipe makes 6 servings but a serving is subjective to your appetite and your needs. Are you asking how many cups? If so, I need to make it again and measure it out.

  1. This soup was absolutely amazing! It smelt so good while it was simmering on the stove. I used a cook chicken instead and shredded it and threw it in at the end. I’m postpartum and this is so yummy, can’t wait to make it and freeze it to have on hand after our next baby! Thank you !

  2. In step 3 you say to add mushrooms and ginger, but those aren’t part of the ingredients list. How much of each should be added?
