Butternut squash soup with chicken is a one-pot recipe packed with lean protein, savory Italian sausage, tender butternut squash, kale, and white beans for a healthy meal.
Butternut squash soup is a comforting fall recipe. The balance of protein from lean chicken and sausage, with tender squash, fiber rich beans and plenty of leafy green kale makes this a complete meal.
I started making this hearty soup a few years ago after my son James was born. I was in need of an easy to prepare and nourishing meal after long nights with our newborn and the grueling days back at the office. To maximize my time, a big pot of chicken butternut squash soup was the answer. This recipe makes plenty of leftovers for the next day too.
