During the SproutChefs holiday cooking series, so far, we have made a sweet potato pie and learned how to host a Magic Cookie Thanksgiving Festival. This week, we will focus on a savory soup using apples. Next week we will make a a sweet breakfast apple crisp using the same kind of apples.
Hot soups are warm and cozy and easy to serve during the holidays. This soup can be served while decorating the Christmas tree or it keeps well in the refrigerator. It can be heated up served when there is no time to cook.
For this recipe leftover Thanksgiving turkey can be substituted for the stir-fried chicken breast.
