It’s been a pretty bad season for colds in my house. This soup works miracles for us and keeps us feeling healthy with a tasty blend of chicken, sweet potato, rosemary, and thyme. It comes together in about an hour.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add carrots and sweet potato; cook and stir for about 5 minutes, adding a splash of chicken broth if veggies begin to burn before they are soft. Add onion. Cover and cook, stirring every few minutes, until sweet potato is soft, about 5 more minutes.
While sweet potatoes are cooking, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute until browned, 3 to 5 minutes, adding a dash of olive oil if needed. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add remaining chicken broth, thyme sprigs, and rosemary sprig. Add water if there is not enough broth.
Bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until all veggies are thoroughly cooked and flavors have melded together, 30 to 45 minutes.
Season with pepper and remove herb sprigs before serving.
