Why You’ll Love Easy Marsala Rotisserie Chicken Soup
There are plenty of reasons to love this rotisserie chicken soup, but here are a few:
You can enjoy this soup year-round. Let’s face it: some hearty, filling soups that are exactly what you need on a cold winter day just won’t work in the summer when you’re craving lighter meals. The last thing you want in the heat of the summer is to eat a bowl of soup that weighs you down and makes you feel lethargic. Easy Marsala Rotisserie Chicken Soup has plenty of liquids (each serving contains a cup of chicken stock), making it a soup that is light enough for summertime.
Each serving contains 20 grams of protein. Some soups that are loaded with vegetables and stock can be a bit light on protein. Not this healthy chicken vegetable soup! Each serving contains 20 grams of protein, so it will easily carry you to your next meal.
It’s also a good “diet soup.” Each serving contains only 288 calories, and with a full cup of chicken stock in each serving, each serving is quite filling.
It’s a great last-minute dinner. Swing by the grocery store after work and grab a rotisserie chicken, a bottle of Marsala wine, and a few other items, and dinner is almost ready!

- 3 T. extra virgin olive oil
- 8 oz. white mushrooms, sliced
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 4 green onions, ends removed and chopped thin, white and green parts separated
- 2/3 c. dry Marsala wine
- 6 c. chicken stock, preferably organic
- 3 c. rotisserie chicken, shredded
Over medium-high heat, heat a Dutch oven or heavy soup pot. Add olive oil and mushrooms. Stirring occasionally, cook mushrooms until they begin to release their juices (about 6-7 mins). Season with salt and pepper to taste. To the pan, add white parts of the onion. Cook 1-2 minutes, making sure to stir once or twice. Increase the heat to high and add Marsala wine. Cook until wine is reduced to about 1/3 of its original volume (about 4-5 minutes). To the pan, add chicken stock and shredded chicken. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to just slightly below medium. Simmer until thoroughly heated (about 4-5 minutes). Remove from heat and serve. Garnish with green parts of onion.
