This chicken vegetable soup is made without noodles. But you are not going to notice it because it’s very filling and comforting.
Instead of noodles, this chicken vegetable soup is made with tons of veggies such as leeks, red bell pepper, carrots, celery, green peas, and corn, and seasoned with fresh herbs and lime juice which adds rich flavor to the soup.
Cook this soup at the beginning of the week to enjoy for lunch or dinner. Or make it for a friend who came down with a cold (he or she will be so grateful!)
Everyone needs a chicken soup recipe in their recipe box because it’s something we all eat every once in a while. So, why not make it without noodles this time?
