Roasted Chicken and Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Chicken and Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash and corn give naturally sweet flavor to this savory chicken soup. Using rotisserie chicken makes it an easy meal to prepare on a busy weeknight. Tip: Freeze leftover soup in individual portions using large muffin tins. Spray muffin tin with nonstick spray, then ladle soup into cups and freeze. When frozen, remove portions to a plastic bag or storage container. One serving equals about 2 frozen pieces.
