It’s that time of year again when the cold and flu seems to be getting everyone, which means it is the perfect time to make a big batch of cozy, nutritious soup! There’s nothing like Mom’s homemade chicken soup to cure a cold, and today we’re taking classic chicken soup and upping the ante with loads of immune-boosting ingredients. With its rich turmeric-ginger broth, shredded chicken, sweet potatoes, kale, and bright lemon juice, this soup is also completely crave-worthy. We recommend making a double batch – one to eat now, and one to freeze for later, just in case!

Ingredients for Healing Chicken Soup

The nutritionist in me is SO pumped to talk about the magical healing properties of the ingredients in this soup! The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers of food are truly incredible.

  • Bone Broth – The base of this soup starts with bone broth. Why bone broth over traditional broth? Bone broth is filled with vitamins, minerals, and collagen that can help support a healthy immune system. Whether you make it or buy it, bone broth is great to have in your cold-fighting arsenal!
  • Turmeric – Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant spice that gives this soup its beautiful yellow color. Turmeric has also been shown to have antiviral properties(1), which is great for fighting off the cold and flu.
  • Ginger – Ginger is another spice that has antiviral and antibacterial properties in addition to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds that can be helpful in healing the cold and flu, and has been shown to be especially good for digestive issues(2). Ginger has also been shown to be helpful for sore throats, and sipping on ginger tea can often provide immediate relief.
  • Onion & Garlic – While they may not exactly be trendy veggies, did you know that they actually have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties? In addition, onion has a wealth of vitamins and minerals that are great for your overall health and for flu-fighting. Garlic contains a compound called allicin that is thought to give it its powerful antiviral and anti-fungal properties(3), in addition to other benefits.
  • Celery – Lately celery has become popular thanks to the touted benefits of celery juice, but here we’re using it in its whole form! Celery is rich in vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants like Vitamin C.
  • Sweet Potatoes – Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious, rich in antioxidants, and a great source of vitamins, including Vitamins A, C, and B6, and healthy carbohydrates, which can help keep your energy up when you’re feeling under the weather!
  • Lacinato Kale – Kale is widely known for being a nutritional powerhouse. It is rich in vitamins A, K, and C, as well as antioxidants. We use lacinato kale here because we love the flavor over curly kale.
  • Fresh Thyme – Did you know that many herbs actually have incredibly powerful properties? In this recipe, we chose thyme because we love the flavor. Thyme is antimicrobial, so it is a great option for fighting the cold and flu, and it also has expectorant properties, which can help clear mucus and fight cold and congestion.
  • Chicken – You can use either chicken breast or thighs for this recipe, and feel free to save yourself some extra work by buying rotisserie chicken at the store! The chicken will cook in the soup, and then you will simply shred it with two forks.
  • Coconut Milk – Coconut milk pairs perfectly with the flavors in this soup, adds a slightly creamy consistency and provides a source of healthy fats.
  • Lemon Juice – The juice of one lemon stirred in at the end of cooking helps lend a bright, light flavor to the soup, plus lemon is known to be great for supporting detoxification, as well as being high in Vitamin C.

How To Make Healing Ginger Chicken Soup

This chicken soup is super simple to make! For the stovetop version, just follow the steps below:

  1. Brown the chicken. First, you’ll brown your chicken breasts or thighs in the same pot that you’ll be making the soup in. You don’t want to cook them all the way through, but searing will help you build flavor.
  2. Saute the onions, garlic, and celery. Once you remove the chicken, you’ll saute the onions, garlic, and celery until they are just tender.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer. Next, you’ll quickly saute the ginger, then add the chicken back to the pot along with the sweet potatoes, broth, and seasonings. Simmer for 30-40 minutes, until the chicken shreds easily with a fork and the sweet potatoes are fully cooked.
  4. Stir in the coconut milk and kale. Stir in the coconut milk and the kale and let it cook for 2-3 minutes, until the kale turns bright green, then turn off the heat.
  5. Squeeze in the lemon juice and taste for seasoning. Finally, squeeze in the juice of a lemon and then taste for seasoning, and enjoy!

Q Can I freeze this soup?
A

Yes! This soup freezes great. Just pack it into airtight containers, or, if you need to save room in your freezer, ladle it into Ziplock bags then lay the bags flat in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, you can pack them together and stand them up. To reheat, simply microwave a serving for 3-4 minutes, stirring halfway through, or simmer on the stove over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Q Can I make this in the Instant Pot or Crockpot?
A

This soup will work in either the Instant Pot or Crockpot. We recommend cooking it on high pressure for 15 minutes in the Instant Pot and either 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low in the Crockpot. Whichever way you make it, we hope this healing chicken soup helps boost you through this cold and flu season! For more nourishing Instant Pot soup recipes check these out: creamy pumpkin, chicken noodle, chicken tortilla, or cauliflower with leek.

Q What to Serve with Ginger Chicken Soup?
A

While this soup is totally a meal all on its own (it’s got all of the goods – healthy fats, energizing carbohydrates, and filling protein), feel free to add your favorite crunchy bread as a yummy starchy side or even enjoy this soup overtop white or brown rice! If you’re a soup + salad person, this really simple arugula salad would be a great veggie side.

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 50 mins
Servings: 6 Servings
This chicken soup is packed with nutrient-dense, immune-boosting veggies and herbs to help you feel better faster!

Ingredients  

  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 3 stalks of celery diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound) cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 5 cups chicken broth or bone broth
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme chopped
  • ½ teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 head lacinato kale de-stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Once the butter is melted, add the chicken. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side until browned, then remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the onion and celery to the pot and cook for 5-7 minutes, until both are browned and the onion is translucent, then add the garlic and ginger and saute for about 1 minute, until fragrant.
  • Return the chicken to the pot along with the sweet potatoes, then stir in the chicken broth, thyme, salt, pepper, bay leaf, and turmeric.
  • Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 30-40 minutes, until the chicken can be easily pulled apart with a fork.
  • Pull the chicken from the pot and shred with two forks or with the paddle attachment of a stand mixer. Add the chicken back to the pot then stir in the coconut milk and kale. Cook for 2-3 minutes until kale is fully wilted.
  • Add the lemon juice and then taste the soup for seasoning, adding additional salt and pepper if needed. Spoon into individual bowls and serve!

    I absolutely loved this recipe. We grabbed some blueberries off our toddler’s plate and threw them in and it was great (although a bit odd). I want to try adding some cayenne powder next time. I usually add it to my wellness teas and think it would be great in this already wonderful soup.

    • Brandi Schilhab says

    We love it! I wasn’t sure my husband would but he did. My daughter in-law is allergic to coconut. What can I substitute for the coconut milk; plain Greek yogurt, cream, etc.?

    • Lisa says

      Lisa —  09/23/2020 At 15:39

      Does the soup taste a lot like coconut milk? I’ve made one before and the coconut milk seemed to over power it.

    • Brandi Schilhab says

      Brandi Schilhab —  09/24/2020 At 08:25

      It doesn’t! The lemon and ginger mask the coconut milk pretty well. If you want to omit the coconut milk, though, go for it! You’ll just need to add extra broth!

    So yummy and nourishing! It was a perfect chilly night meal. I even tried my hand at homemade bone broth from the link in the recipe! Added a little extra salt since my broth was a little bland, but otherwise, perfect!!

    • Dana says

      Dana —  10/06/2020 At 17:15

      And when I mean broth, I mean the homemade broth. I didn’t have the right bones and I had less than called for. It still turned out great! The broth of the soup wasn’t bland at all. The ginger and turmeric were such a good pair. The coconut milk added such a nice richness to it as well!

    THE BEST SOUP! Without a doubt our house favorite- our most recommended and shared recipes … people get hesitant to try it because it’s so healthy and then are AMAZED when they try it! I’ve even subbed in random vegetables we have on hand, swapped potatoes and it always is delicious- the kale, coconut milk, ginger, and turmeric are the non negotiables.

    Decided to try this soup recipe at the last minute to use up some coconut milk and kale I had in my fridge and since I had all the other ingredients on hand (only needing to sub chicken thighs for breasts), it saved me a trip to the grocery store. And oh boy this did not disappoint, tween, teen and adult approved! I followed the instructions for making it in the Instant Pot so it was easy and quick to get dinner on the table after a busy day, and had leftovers for lunch the next day.

    Absolutely delicious. Made with only minor adjustments. Subbed frozen spinach for the kale. Omitted the Coconut Milk for a bit more broth. Crushed the garlic instead of mincing. Thank you and looking forward to making other recipes of yours.

    I made this soup tonight because my husband is feeling under the weather, and I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious this was! The only change I made was using spinach instead of kale because that is what I had. I am going to make this soup all fall and winter long! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    This soup was so delicious! Made it nearly exact to the recipe except used chicken thighs instead of breasts and added a pinch of cayenne. Ahhmazing!!

    If I omitted the sweet potatoes do you know what the carbohydrate content would be? We are currently on a ketogenic diet and avoiding carbohydrates. Thank you!

    • Melissa Guevara says

      Melissa Guevara —  03/25/2022 At 19:14

      Hi Hannah! I do not know what the exact carb count would be, but omitting the sweet potatoes would reduce it drastically. I believe the remaining ingredients (chicken, vegetables, and herbs/spices) are keto-friendly. ~Melissa

    Ok, I am loving this soup! I felt like it took me awhile to chop up all the veggies, and I didn’t think it’d all fit in my Instant Pot at first. But it all worked out. The Instant Pot instructions need some editing, but I was able to figure it out. I blended some in the Vitamix for my 9-month old, poured it in a pouch, and he loved it. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

    Absolutely love this soup. It is like a warm hug and I feel very nourished eating it. My 3yr old son loves it also. I tend to add frozen spinich instead of kale, as it’s what it have on hand and the last batch I made we added noodles which were a great addition. Love it!!

    Truly a healing soup! Any time someone in my family is sick, I make this (or pull portions from the freezer!) and I swear it helps knock out any ailment. It’s also so comforting and healing for postpartum meal prep. This will be a family heirloom type of recipe!

    This should be renamed “the best effing soup”. My husband said it was “too good!” Even the young kiddos liked it.
    Will definitely be making it again (and again and again and again)!

    We absolutely loved this recipe! My boyfriend and his mother loved every thing about it, and also enjoyed how hearty it is along with the health benefits.

    Is this soup safe to store in the fridge for a few days? If so, for how long?

    Thank you for sharing!
