‘Turmeric Chicken-&-Chickpea Soup’

Recipe Courtesy of Cooking Light Magazine

During our rare snow days this past week, a fragrant pot of chicken soup was a must!  This Thai-inspired chicken soup comes together in no time, and is incredibly satisfying on a cold winter’s day.  Shredded chicken thighs are combined with a chicken broth-based soup that is flavored with coconut milk, lime juice and fragrant ground turmeric. The turmeric gives a healthy boost of antioxidants to the soup, and also a rich yellow hue which I love.  Fresh basil, garlic and onions are also in the mix along with buttery chickpeas for an added protein-boost.  Feel free to add in some fresh spinach or watercress like I did; I also recommend some matchstick carrots, as well as a garnish of Sriracha sauce for a kick.
