Colorful Chicken Thai Soup

Chicken Thai Soup- Healthy Recipes

Whether you are sick or just looking for a new twist to the traditional chicken soup on a cold day, give this recipe a try. It’s full of vegetables, protein, whole food carbs, and healthy fats (plus garlic and onion to help fight a cold or flu). It will help kickstart your immune system to fight off any current illness and ward off any possible bugs you might encounter plus it tastes delicious! This is another one I like to make in a large batch and freeze individual servings because who really wants to cook when they’re sick? Enjoy!
