Roasted Chicken Butternut Squash Soup

Ingredients

2 skinless chicken breasts (or 4 chicken thighs if you like dark meat)
1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeds and diced 
OR
3 cups of frozen diced butternut squash 
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 tbsp extra-virign olive oil
salt and pepper 
4 cups low-sodium organic chicken broth 
1 tsp turmeric 
1 tsp garlic powder 
Fresh parsley 
 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet, toss together chicken, squash, onion, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and roast until squash and chicken are cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.
  2. Transfer chicken to a plate and let it cool. Put squash and onions to a medium pot and add broth, garlic powder and turmeric. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Let simmer for about 10-15 minutes. If you like a smoother soup, transfer to a blender and blend to desired consistency. OR With a potato masher mash the squash until soup is thick and chunky. 
  3. Shred or cut meat into small pieces and add to soup. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To serve, top with parsley!
