Lemon Oregano Chicken Soup with Zucchini + Spinach

Lemon Oregano Chicken Soup with Zucchini + Spinach

A Series of Unfortunate Events came out on Netflix, so you can catch me binge watching that. Growing up, I would fly through those books. They were one of my favorite series in grammar school. Plus, all Netflix shows are phenomenal. I am 4 episodes in, and couldn’t be more hooked. Not to mention, I couldn’t be more hooked on this lemon oregano chicken soup.

I am slowly but surely getting over a cold, and this soup was majority of what I ate. There is an entire bag of frozen spinach in this soup, plus two lemons. I’m no doctor, but this soup is perfect for someone who has the flu, and their throat hurts too bad to eat anything. If you didn’t get the hint, that was me the past few days. I have never experienced being hungry and having no desire to eat, or not being able to eat.

Other than your basic veggie base of carrot, celery and onion, ย I added in zucchini and spinach. I opted to not add noodles to this soup, butttttt you can add noodles if you like. This soup is yours for the making.
