Chicken Soup Recipe

Especially if I use chicken stock in my soup recipes, I prefer to make it myself. I always shred the chicken I use while making the broth and add it to the soup at the end of the recipe. BUT when it comes to Diverticulitis, it is very important not to add them or strain the chicken broth so that no chicken pieces come into the soup.

Surprisingly, the soup still turned out to be delicious despite the absence of chicken. So, no need to worry. You can still enjoy a great soup. Here is the recipe...

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • Potato (1 medium)
  • Carrot (1, medium)
  • Zucchini (1, small)
  • Egg Yolk (From 1 medium egg)
  • Chicken Leg (4 legs)
  • Water (40 fl oz)
  • Lemon (1 1/2 lemons)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


    Step 1

    Put water in a large pot, add chicken legs, and boil for 10 minutes. Chop the carrots, zucchini, and potatoes into cubes and add them to the chicken broth. Add salt, mix, and boil for 20 more minutes.

    Step 2

    Put 5 tbsp of plain Greek yogurt in a medium bowl. Add the yolk of 1 egg and the juice of half a lemon and mix well. Add 2 ladles of chicken stock to this bowl, and mix.

    Step 3

    Take the chicken out of the pot.

    Step 4

    Mix the dressing by adding it little by little to the pot. Turn the stove to medium heat and cook for another 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, add pepper and juice of 1 lemon and mix once more, boil for a very short time, and it's ready.


Tip: When the temperature of the dressing approaches the heat of the soup, be sure to put a little bit of the dressing into the soup. Otherwise, the yogurt will look flaky in the soup.

Recommendation: If you don't like the chicken stock soup sour, use 1/2 lemon juice instead of the 1 lemon you added in the last step.

Warning: Never add the chicken pieces to the soup. This is not good for your diet.
