Simple, delicious and healthy soup! This is a wonderful use for leftover Thanksgiving turkey, or can be made with chicken breasts. Serve piping hot with freshly baked bread, rolls, or pumpkin muffins. Enjoy!

Easy and delicious! I added 1 tsp garlic powder and also subbed white pepper for the black pepper. It was great! This was a great recipe for the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Will definitely use again!
