This easy healthy chicken broccoli soup is the perfect simple recipe for cozy winter dinners. Easy comfort food in a bowl served with crusty bread.
On chilly nights there’s just nothing better than having a steaming bowl of flavorful soup to warm you up and this easy, healthy chicken broccoli soup is like a hug in a bowl. It’s creamy and full of texture while not being too heavy or weighed down with cream or a flour base.
I use a cornstarch slurry to thicken the soup slightly but that’s optional. Other ways to thicken the soup is to add some mashed potatoes or by pureeing a third of the soup and stirring it back into the pot. The milk adds creaminess but can also be substituted with a dairy-free version or simply use chicken stock instead. It’s the kind of recipe that comes together quickly (thanks to the rotisserie chicken) with no fuss but be sure to make a big pot because this is seriously good for lunch the next day.
