Chicken Parm Soup is a delightful combination of all your favorite chicken Parmesan goodness, in a warm and comforting bowl of soup.
I have been making this recipe for years. I like to call it an Italian version of French Onion Soup. It has a nice rich broth with tomatoes, onions, basil and chicken. All of the delicious flavors of Chicken parm, but in a soup. And to make it even better, the chicken parmesan soup is poured over a crusty piece of bread that has been toasted with olive oil, garlic and Parmesan cheese! Yum! And then another piece is placed on top.
How to Make Garlic Parmesan Bread
First, make your toasted garlic bread. The bread is quite easy to make. Just slice your bread about 3/4 inch thick and drizzle with olive oil. Toast under the broiler for a few minutes. And then rub each warm, toasted piece of bread with a clove of garlic. Next, sprinkle the bread with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese and pop it back under the broiler until the cheese melts. Then you are ready to go!
I made a few extra pieces because I knew I would want to eat them right then and there and not wait for the soup! I was right. Don’t wait to try this soup! It is so good, your family will be glad you made it, no matter what the weather.
