  • 6 cups water
  • 32 ounces low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 large chicken breasts raw
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt I added more later so you may want to taste and add salt as needed
  • 1 cup peas (frozen or fresh, not canned)
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 4 parsnips chopped
  • 2 large potatoes diced
  • 1-2 zucchini diced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • cilantro for garnish


  • In a large soup pot, heat olive oil on medium heat.
  • Add onion and cook 3 minutes.
  • Add other vegetables and cook 5 minutes until they soften.
  • Add raw chicken breasts, water, broth, and spices.
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and cook until the chicken breasts are done.
  • Remove the chicken and with two forks, shred the chicken.
  • Return the chicken shreds to the pot and simmer for 10 minutes so the flavors soak into the chicken.
  • Garnish with cilantro.
