Roasted Chicken and Butternut Squash Soup - 21 Day Fix Approved Recipe
Butternut squash and corn give naturally sweet flavor to this savory chicken soup. Using rotisserie chicken makes it an easy meal to prepare on a busy weeknight!
One serving counts as one green and one red container.
8 servings, about 1 cup each
1 tsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
4 cups low-sodium organic chicken broth
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme (or 2 Tbsp. dried thyme)
Sea salt (or Himalayan salt) and ground white pepper (to taste; optional)
8 oz rotisserie chicken breast, boneless, skinless, shredded
1 cup frozen corn (or roasted corn)
2 cups cubed butternut squash
1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
2. Add onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
3. Add chicken broth and thyme. Season with salt and pepper if desired; cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
4. Add chicken, corn, and squash; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until squash is soft.
5. Divide evenly between eight serving bowls.
Meal Prep Tip:
Freeze leftover soup in individual portions using large muffin tins. Spray muffin tin with nonstick spray, then ladle soup into cups and freeze. When frozen, remove portions to a plastic bag or storage container. One serving equals about 2 frozen pieces. Additionally, I like to make a big batch of this on Sundays for meal prep and take it to work with me for lunch all week long.... Grab and go!!
