Simple and nutritious soup! I love to keep this on hand to heat up for my lunches. It's so wholesome and healthy and has great flavors.

This will become your go-to soup this fall. It's delicious! The seasoning blend adds a great savory flavor. But it's a bit sweet from the butternut squash. We added kale to our soup and liked the fresh taste and crunchy texture. Spinach would be fantastic too. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 2 qt
    chicken broth
  • 1/2-1 lb
    chicken, cut in bite-sized pieces
  • 2 c
    cubed butternut squash
  • 1 c
    sliced celery
  • 1/2 c
    chopped sweet peppers (red, green, yellow, or combo)
  • 1/2 tsp
    roasted chicken seasoning blend (or 1/4 tsp each garlic powder and onion powder and a pinch of sage)
  • ·
    salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 c
    chopped spinach, kale or other green (optional - I tend to add greens to a lot of my soups, but it's just as good if you leave it out!)
  • 2 tsp
    butter
  • 2 Tbsp
    cream or half and half

How to Make Creamy Chicken and Butternut Squash Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine broth, chicken, squash, celery, pepper, seasoning blend, and salt and pepper in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 30-45 minutes until chicken and veggies are desired tenderness.
  2. Stir in greens, if using, and cook until just wilted down, a minute or two more. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary. Stir in butter and cream.
  3. *This is not a thick cream soup. If you prefer it thicker, you would have to add some flour or cornstarch dissolved in a little cold water at the end when you add the cream.
    *This recipe also works well in the Crock Pot if you want a fix-it-and-forget-it meal, and in the pressure cooker if you need it in a hurry!
