Homemade Chicken Vegetable Soup is one of the best soups on the planet. I swear that this soup has medicinal properties. Not feeling good? Have some soup. Need to lose weight? Make Homemade Chicken Vegetable Soup. Super hungry, and not a lot of ingredients in the house, but you want something healthy? Yup, you guessed it — Homemade Chicken Vegetable Soup. This soup is so good that my twin boys went through a phase during their toddler years where they would only eat this soup! (We called it Yiayia Soup — because, of course, I learned how to make it from my Mom!) 

A few posts back, I told you about how I learned early on in my 23 year old marriage that (mostly) all my dear husband needed to make him happy was pasta. This is still true! What I didn’t mention in that post is the man’s love of soup. Good Golly, does my man LOVE soup. His favorite is definitely classic chicken noodle soup, but he loves them all – french onion, minestrone, crab — I think you get the picture.

So when my Mom introduced us to her “Yiayia Soup (AKA Homemade Chicken Vegetable Soup), he was immediately in soup heaven. And now, we have four kids who also love, love, love this soup. We love this soup so much that one entire pot of soup will disappear in a sitting.

As you know by now, most of my dishes are simple. I don’t like complicated or fussy cooking, and frankly, just don’t have the time for it. With just a few vegetables, a little olive oil, and a rotisserie chicken, you can make this soup in under 30 minutes.
