Perfect for cool night - Double rainbow chicken soup



With many cool nights still ahead, the fresh soup provides a rainbow of key nutrients vital for healthy skin, immune function, circulation and vision in fewer than 180 calories per serving.

Ingredients



  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bunch rainbow carrots, chopped
  • 1 bunch rainbow chard, chopped
  • 1 bunch dino kale, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 quart chicken broth
  • 1 green onion, sliced for garnish


  • Preparation

    In a large soup pot, heat olive oil over high heat. When oil begins to smoke, add chicken and sear 5-6 minutes on each side to brown. Add onion, garlic, carrots and chard and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Garnish with sliced green onion.

    One big bowl of soup supplies 100% of vitamin C and 20% of potassium needs. And thanks to the rainbow vegetables, this soup also supplies colorful pigments such as beta-carotene, lutein and cryptoxanthin, which along with vitamin C and potassium, support heart health and ward off chronic ailments such as cancer and high blood pressure.  - Dr. Liz Applegate
