Lemon Turmeric Chicken Soup Recipe Is Flavorful Comfort in a Bowl

In my quest to make the perfect chicken soup recipe, I’ve been trying out different variations. From Greek chicken soup to classic chicken soup, it’s all about flavor and nutrition. After all, there’s nothing more soothing than a steaming bowl of chicken soup, so it may as well taste as amazing as it feels.

This lemon turmeric chicken soup recipe is loaded with the healing benefits of turmeric and the tanginess of lemon (not to mention loads of chicken and vegetables). Savory and soothing, this golden soup recipe is flavorful comfort in a bowl.

Chicken soup is an all-time fave, so count on more variations of soup recipes to come. But, this one is particularly good!
I've never met a chicken soup that I didn't like and I'm sure this one will be equally delicious!
