Curried Chicken Soup Recipe

Curried Chicken Soup Recipe

My German mother would occasionally cook dishes that were not traditional German recipes. One of my favorites was her Curry Chicken Soup. I've added my own touches to it, such as the chickpeas, coconut milk and fresh cilantro.—Deanna Hindenach, Paw Paw, Michigan

"Outstanding! My husband demanded it again two days later. It's also great with leftover turkey in place of the chicken."
