My one-year-old boy and I got a strong cold (you probably already know about that if you read the Warm Bacon Lentil Salad and the Shrimp Vegetable Skillet recipe posts) and just yesterday my husband got the cold too. Now three of us are sick. Not funny AT ALL. I was so tired yesterday that I felt like staying on the sofa all day long. So, that’s exactly what Thomas, my son, and I did. We watched tv more specifically cartoons all afternoon 😉

My husband got home a little earlier and asked “what for dinner”? Oh boy… he didn’t even wait for me to answer his question and said: I’m going to buys some food! I happily said “great idea”! And he bought a flavourful roasted chicken for dinner and some bread. I ate the chicken with salad and he made a sandwich for himself. Thomas preferred to have his banana apple puree baby food.

Since we had leftovers and Thomas was feeling much better I could cook and make for us this flavourful sweet potato chicken soup. I just feel when we are sick the best thing to eat is a warm, hearty and healthy bowl of soup, don’t you agree with me? This soup is ultra-easy that even someone who has a strong cold like me can make it. So, I made this sweet potato chicken soup for us and we all love it. Even Thomas ate and he asked for more!! I couldn’t believe!! I was so happy!

Also I decided to make it with lots of sweet potato because this veggie is packed with vitamin A, which is great as an immune booster. This is a quick weeknight Sweet Potato Chicken soup that will be good for all your family. It’s gluten free, kid-friendly, low-carb and paleo too. Because this soup is loaded with sweet potatoes, it is very filling and perfect for heating up for lunch the next day. It also stays good in the fridge for up 4 days. Enjoy!
