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.)

Spinach makes a great substitute for Bok Choy in this soup!
