Chicken Dijon Soup

1x1.trans Chicken Dijon Soup

 

This soup is a cold weather favorite in our house.  Packed with nutrient rich kale, it not only tastes great, but is great for you as well.  I was so excited the last time I made it that my 3.5 year old and 1 year old both licked their bowls clean!

    Wow. I have been looking for a good chicken-and-greens soup the last couple of days when I just happened to be sitting here this morning, happily clicking through websites, and found this soup! When I read that your kids gobbled it up I knew I had to make this for dinner tonight. I’ll make it GF for my family with a bit of rice flour instead of regular flour and I think I might add a splash of cream (my husband seems to appreciate cream soups more than not, lol) Thanks for the very appealing recipe!

    • I am glad you found my recipe. I have also made it GF for my parents and it turned out great. I have never tried adding cream. Let me know how it turns out.

    • April, I hope you enjoy it. My parents are also GF and have made this with rice flour. They are also dairy free so I have never tried cream. Let me know how it turns out :)

    Hello again! So I made this awesome soup, and my husband and I ate it up (I couldn’t convince my daughter…she’s afraid of green). It is really super delicious! I’m so glad I just happened upon your site because I probably would have made some other, not-as-tasty soup and been sad, but instead I got bowls full of yummy! I added the cream (about 1/2 a cup for the whole recipe) and it made this healthy soup just a little decadent – I highly recommend it! Thanks for the great recipe, this one is going in the permanent recipe file for sure! I wanted to comment on the flouring and cooking the chicken they way you indicated. What a creative thing to do for a soup! It helped the pieces of chicken stay together better, helped thicken the soup a bit, and added nice flavor from the browned chicken, and although the chicken wasn’t crispy anymore, it seemed….crispy…chewy? I don’t know, it was just the right thing to do, I’ll leave it at that. I surely never would have thought of it!
