Chicken and Parsnip Soup







After coming down with a horrible cold last week, I wanted some homemade soup without all the "homemade" effort. I found this recipe for Chicken and Parsnip Soup in my November issue of Cooking Light Magazine and it was just what the doctor ordered. It was easy to prepare, cooked quickly, and produced a delicious, healthy meal with lots of leftovers. I added green beans, boiled and shredded chicken breasts (instead of a rotisserie), additional chicken broth, and grated Parmesan cheese. It was the perfect meal to help me recover. What's your favorite meal when you're feeling under the weather?

Sorry to hear that you've been 'under the weather'... I hope you're now feeling better.

The soup looks very warm, filling, and soothing. Soup is always my go-to meal when I'm not feeling well.

I hope you have a good week!

Wow only 204 calories a serving! With all the ingredients I thought it would be more.

Looks amazing. YUM>

Oooh, this looks delicious. I'm a big fan of anything involving cheese and chicken. I love lasagne when the weather turns cold -- warm and so satisfying!

This looks great! Pasnips can be so difficult to use because of their flavor, but this sounds fantastic! Hope you are feeling better!
I like lots of tea, soup, and a cozy blanket
