Cozy Chicken Curry Soup

October 13, 2015

Cozy Chicken Curry soup is like snuggling under the covers on a cold day  as it is filled with tender chicken, vegetables, ginger, garlic, turmeric and curry powder. Soup that warms you from the inside out in just 30 little minutes!

Oh my goodness! In just one 24 hour period, Hong Kong went from I feel like I may melt whilst waiting for the bus (30 degrees Celsius) to cracking out the sweaters (18 degrees Celsius). I love fall! I love the crisp air! This is just the kind of weather that needs more than just a soup. You need a Cozy Chicken Curry Soup with a therapeutic kick of warming ginger, anti-inflammatory turmeric and spicy curry powder to keep the chill and colds at bay.

You could make this soup in the slow cooker but I made this delicious soup in just about 30 minutes on the top of my stove. 10 minutes for chopping and 20 minutes to cook and you are in business. I did not even bother peeling my potatoes as this is a rustic and simple soup with no fussing required.

Don't you just love when you have been working or playing out side and your fingers are chilled and you pick up the warm soup bowl and you can feel the warm steam on your cheeks. This soup is hearty and filling.  I actually could feel the spices warm me from the inside out.

You are just  going to love this Cozy Chicken Curry Soup as it is happily gluten-free, dairy free, low fat and warming. If you would like to make this meal paleo just swap out the regular potato for a sweet potato. You can make this vegan by using vegetable broth and exchange the chicken with more delicious vegetables like strong beans, cauliflower, root vegetables or whatever you like.

This is also the cold and flu season and the weather is unstable up and down so this cozy chicken curry soup is perfect to bring balance back to your yin and yang.

A huge cheat to this dish is just using  your LEFT OVER curry into this soup. If you do not have a gluten allergy, you can even add Japanese udon noodles to the broth. Seriously simple just put your leftover curry in a pan, add chicken broth and season with salt and pepper and adjust curry, turmeric, ginger and cumin to taste, heat  add cooked udon noodles and eat. The 10 minute little left over wonder. I promise I wont tell a soul, it will be our little secret.

If you have not eaten curry then my make from scratch 30 minute little cozy chicken curry soup wonder is perfect fall and winter lunch or dinner idea. If you had a slow cooker you would just add all the ingredients into the pot and the spices and like magic, while you are work, dinner is cooked!

  • I am pinning this to try one day very soon. I love soup, love curry so this is perfect for me. I’m sure my husband and I will devour it. Thanks!

    • Hi Bam – just wanted to let you know I made this soup and my husband and I loved it! I knew it would it would a busy day today so I made a pot yesterday and heated it for dinner tonight. We just polished most of it off. I had big bowls myself (with some chinese broccoli on the side) and it was really tasty, totally hit the spot! : ) I love that it’s spicy yet sweet from the carrots and onions. I’ll definitely be making it again. Adding udon sounds like a great idea; I usually have some in the freezer. Thanks for sharing!

      • Bams Kitchen

        Hello Monica, so happy to hear that your family enjoyed the soup, its even better the next day.

  • This looks so yummy! Missing the fall weather you mentioned, its super hot and humid here in Singapore!

  • What a wonderful recipe Bam.
    Have a happy day.
    🙂 Mandy xo

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Mandy, wishing you a very happy day too!

  • I can not tell you how good this looks to me right now! I have a cold and I don’t feel good! This would be perfect. Maybe I can get Manservant to make it for me~

    • Bams Kitchen

      Wishing you a quick recovery Abbe! LOL Manservant… you are too funny!

  • Winter is coming to our neck of the woods and this is the perfect soup to chase away the winter blues.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Old man winter is surely on its way. I heard there is supposed to be a frost tonight so protect your harvest dearest Norma!

      • No frost yet, but tomorrow night for sure, must remember to cover my crops tomorrow.

  • Looks perfectly satisfying right now!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Sending a virtual bowl your way!

  • I love soup (having some for dinner tonight) and I love curry. So this sounds terrific. Speaking of terrific, really nice pictures — like the lighting. Forgot to congratulate you on the move to shooting RAW. It’s more work, but I do think the results are better. Anyway, terrific recipe — thanks.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you John, your words of encouragement and gentle push for me to shoot raw was all I needed. Loving it. Loads more work but I think worth it. Still loads to learn but really enjoy the cooking and photography. My family just want me to keep cooking and skip the photography… as keeping my families little paws out of the photo for just a few minutes is my biggest struggle… LOL

  • This soup looks wonderful–perfect for fall! 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Nancy! The leftovers, if there are any, are even better the next day.

  • The very same thing happened here in Canberra, we had sweltering 32c right down to 12c in a space of 24hrs. We even turned our heaters back on. Most unusual! Loving your warming chicken soup tho, it looks delicious. The temps are back up, but knowing the Berra, we can expect a few more drastic temp drops before we settle into Summer, so I am sure Ill get to enjoy this recipe. 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Anna! Mother nature just can’t seem to make up her mind. Those huge swings of hot and cold are the perfect venue for people to get sick so I encourage you to get some extra vitamin C and enjoy a little soup as it will cure whatever ails you.

  • Oh Bobbi! How I wish to have this chicken curry soup right now. And now I am dreaming about snuggling under the covers and having this warm soup. Love this is so quick and ready in 30 minutes!

  • hotlyspiced

    We have had the same swings in temperature. Monday was about 33C and the next day was 18C; it’s sundresses one day and winter clothes the next. I do love how healthy this soup is and the curry in it would give wonderful heat xx

    • Bams Kitchen

      Sometimes I crave something with a little spice. I never used to but now that I live in damp Hong Kong I crave it more and more…

  • Sounds perfect for the fall weather! I love your bowl set and always enjoy your photos, Bobbi!

  • This is really very good soup, I feel I can smell it from here with all these goodies in it. This is a must try for me, went to my to do list.

  • This sounds really delicious, never thought of mixing curry and soup together. Another great idea

  • Just a great soup with wonderful flavors, definitely a perfect finger warmer. Way colder here, more like 10C and I saw like 4C this wkd … but was 20C this past Monday. Go figure. Adore that leaf shaped plate!

  • This is such a simple and delicious soup! I also love the little bowls you serve them in. I’m still looking for adorable soup bowls like yours! And I can imagine adding just a tad of coconut milk to make a creamy version… yum!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Adding a bit of coconut milk would be brilliant! Actually those bowls are miso soup bowls from Japan.

  • It’s certainly fall here! Soups are definitely on my radar. Love the rusticness of this dish Bam. I also LOVE your leaf plates. So festive and adorable!

    • Bams Kitchen

      It is not even really cold here in HK yet but I am craving soups. I think even more I have been just craving curry and something warming. I am so glad you like my pottery leaf plates… I actually made them while I lived in Japan. I used real leaves as a template for my dishes and each of my dishes are unique sizes… miss those days.

  • Oh my goodness, Bobbi, you just know that this will be a staple in my house this winter. Love that it’s so quick and easy and jam packed with flavour. Your photos are out of this world, my friend. Simply stunning!
    The weather has changed here suddenly as well. There are even some tiny snow flurries coming down this morning! lol
    Sharing your beautiful soup all over 🙂 Love it!

  • I love curry soups and there is so much to love about this one. First of all that brown leaf plate that the bowl is sitting on. LOVE it. And every curry soup I’ve ever made has had coconut milk. Really like this brothy version. Pnned.

  • We had the same kind of crazy temperature swing over here. A few days of the most incredible summer weather where we were wearing shorts followed by cranking the heat up in the morning. Last week we even had a snow flurry of you can believe that!

    I just love a nice chunky ‘real’ soup…hey, I was brought up on Campbell’s and now when I’m desperate and open a can of it I wonder why I ever thought it was so good. Have to say I haven’t done anything with curry so this is going to be a leap of faith for me – but I’m going to give curry a try. I was never exposed to it until we were renting an apartment while building our house. The woman down below us used to cook curry everything except she would also burn everything to a crisp then open her door to let the smoke and burnt curry fumes out. Sort of turned me off curry.

    • Bams Kitchen

      These last couple of weeks we have had big swings in the temperature with increased humidity and this is just the kind of weather that is perfect for the cold and flu viruses so you need loads of help to stay healthy. Just a touch of turmeric, ginger, ginger and curry powder really helps build your immunity. I think the lady who used to make curry might not have been doing it just right. Normally, when using whole spices for a curry I toast them gently just until they start to pop in the pan, remove them straight away and then use a mortal and pestle to grind them up. It sounds like your neighbour was cooking the spices until they smoked or showed flames … lol and that is not exactly the effect we are going for here… Wishing you a super week!
