Recipe: Curry Chicken Soup


On P2, there is no other better meal.

It’s filling.  It’s easy.  It’s delish.

And curry?  Let’s not forget about the delish factor of this spice.  However, I do have to concede that people either hate it or love it.  My ex-husband totally hated it and couldn’t stand the smell so I never used it in the house.  If I wanted curry anything, I had to go elsewhere.  ::giggle::

This makes an unruly amount of soup.  It can actually be split into two servings, so you can eat one half for lunch, and then the other half for a mid-afternoon snack.  HA!


Curry Chicken Cabbage Soup
1 serving

10 minutes prep
20 minutes start to finish

1 cup chicken stock (homemade or Swanson’s Chicken Stock)
1 cup water
1/2 tsp curry powder
dash of garlic powder, to taste
dash of onion powder, to taste
1 tbsp dehydrated minced onion
salt and pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste (if you like it spicy!)
3.5 oz cubed chicken breast, weighed raw
2 cups cabbage, coarsely chopped
cilantro for garnish

Heat chicken broth and water to simmer, throw in all spices and then add chicken. Let simmer until chicken is fully cooked, and liquid is reduced to half.
Add cabbage and let cook until desired tenderness. Serve hot.

    I just made this. It was easy, tastes great, all is good. Took me longer than 20 mins to soften my cabbage! Anyway I could not see where you got the calorie count. I used 3.5 oz chicken (chicken tender) and I have a scale which gives me calories, says that was 115, the 2 cups cabbage came in at 50 and my chicken stock is practically fat free and 2 cups = 30 calories, for a grand total of 195. Since this is basically one meal, I would be hesitant to make a meal for P2 which was over 200 anyway! I have used one of my fruit allocations in here, it seems to me. As it happens I had lap band surgery a few years ago and I don’t eat much, and it is likely I won’t eat it all for one meal – but your clarification on the calorie count would be appreciated!

      Hello Tejasa, and thanks for stopping by, and another thanks for providing feedback. I will get my trusty recipe figure outer to look at this and see if we need to readjust the counts. I am looking at it also and thinking that might be too high. ::giggle::

      Glad you enjoyed it, and I am all about the ease!

      Will be returning…

        Chicken broth was the culprit because it is much higher in calories and sodium. Ingredient has been changed to chicken stock with water and counts have been adjusted. Count is still higher than Tejasa’s because she didn’t add onion flakes and spices to the count.

          Thanks for figuring that out EweWho. There you go Tejasa! Hope that works out a little better for you. And again, thanks for stopping by!
