Alberta Man Chicken Soup

Simple, delicious, and easy! Feed the family with a one pot meal that will be their new go-to comfort food. The key to this recipe is the rotisserie chicken – cutting down on time and prep.


  • Full rotisserie chicken (buy this from most grocery stores)
  • 1-2 peppers, (red/yellow/orange), diced
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1-2 tsp minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
  • 2-3 carrots, diced
  • 3-4 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 8 cups/2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1-2 tsp poultry seasoning (to taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Butter or Neutral Oil


  • Add cooked rice when serving, do not store with rice in the soup – it will break down and affect the texture of the broth.
  • Not a fan of corn? Use frozen peas instead!
  • Turn this into chicken-noodle by adding cooked noodles when serving – just with rice do not store with noodles in the soup because they will break down. 


  • Dutch oven or large soup pot (only if cooking on the stove)
  • Knife and cutting board
  • Heat safe spoon to stir


  1. In your pot add about 1 tbsp butter or oil and then diced onion. Saute until the onion starts to soften before adding your diced carrots, peppers, and celery. Continue cooking until all veggies are soft.
  2. Add minced garlic and saute another minute until fragrant, then add your broth and poultry seasoning and bring to a simmer. 
  3. While waiting for broth to simmer, break down your chicken (if you haven’t already), tearing the meat into bite sized pieces. Add the chicken to the pot. 
  4. Add your corn to the pot and let soup simmer for about ten minutes until corn is cooked through, season with salt and pepper and serve!

Notes: Pull apart your chicken at home and store in freezer bags. You can freeze this chicken and add it to the soup still frozen. This will increase day-of cooking time, but can save you prep time and fridge storage space!
