Alright. I know. It’s November 22nd, Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and you’re probably sick of turkey before you’ve even eaten it. BUT, let me just say this. This turkey is drizzled with soy sauce and tossed in sesame oil for an Asian twist that will make you forget that you’re even eating Turkey. (And by the way, if you’re not eating turkey, a rotisserie chicken is absolutely perfect for this meal.) And either option is perfect for making your own stock, which makes this soup that much more comforting.

Using Homemade Chicken Stock

Whenever you make homemade soup, I highly suggest using homemade chicken stock. I promise, your cooking will taste ten times better.

Remember that you can always freeze leftover chicken carcass/meat and make chicken stock on a day when you have time! No defrosting necessary!

I was excited to share this meal idea with my husband as I was making it, but I could tell he had his doubts. He doesn’t admit that he’s a picky eater but man, he’s a picky eater. Anyway he devoured this soup. Like, tip-the-bowl-and-pour-every-last-drop-in-your-mouth kind of devour. Like, we have no leftovers kind of devour.

(I think I prefer the picky eater in him.)

  1. I really love this soup. It’s a light clean soup especially after a Thanksgiving feast. I added a little more sesame oil and tamari  sauce. Next time I will add shiitake mushrooms. It’s a keeper.

  2. This sounds amazing!!! I don’t have bok choy on me right now. Do you think it would work with equal amounts spinach or is it better to wait and buy some? Can’t wait to try this. Thank you. 

  3. This is a great recipe for turkey leftovers…..I increased the seasonings a bit to add more flavor and it made a really great soup !   I would definitely make again as my family loved it! 

    • Hi Mary! So glad you liked it as much as we did, it’s definitely going to be a post-Thanksgiving recipe every year from now on, with a rotisserie chicken or turkey thrown in the mix throughout the year too!!
