Curried Chicken Soup

 

Curried Chicken Soup

Care to Curry? With the country dropping into a deep freeze, it is the perfect time to share my favorite curried chicken soup recipe. It is a meal in a bowl - veggies, carbs, and protein all in one pot. If you need more kick, add more cayenne. Serves 4 as an entree and six as a side.
