This Healthy Chicken Vegetable Soup is so easy to make, especially when you have pre-cooked Canadian chicken on hand. I’ve mentioned a few times now that once a week I cook up a batch of chicken breasts to make dinners during the week easier. Doing this keeps my health goals on track, I have a clean protein ready to go and keeps my heart healthy.

Chicken Farmers of CanadaSpeaking of a healthy heart, my heart goes to Canadian chicken. It’s incredibly important to me that my chicken comes from Canadian Farmers. These farmers are supporting their families and carrying for their chickens like how I would. It’s easy to seek out for Canadian Chicken at the grocery store, just look for the Raised By a Canadian Farmer logo.

Keeping chicken Canadian not only helps our economy but helps the families who raise the chickens. Want to meet your Canadian Farmers? See who they are here.

BEST SOUP EVER TIP: add lemon juice. It adds that extra zing that sometimes goes missing. I was making this recipe while chatting with a friend and she brought it up. I did something similar with this recipe for creamy cauliflower dill soup by adding apple cider vinegar.

This recipe makes a lot, so make sure you have a larger pot. I like this set from Amazon.
