Healthy Recipe: Chicken Verde Soup

With Thanksgiving coming up this week, I’m excited that I had leftover soup in the freezer. There’s nothing better during a crazy week than not having to cook; making a big batch of soup is just the way to do it!

I’ve also recently become obsessed with my immersion blender.  There’s nothing that thing can’t improve (okay, there’s probably a lot, but with soup, you can’t go wrong). If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a normal blender, or just leave it chunky, whatever works for you.

The chicken could also be substituted for turkey for a post-Thanksgiving meal that’s better than leftovers.
