Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil and then onions. Saute until onions are soft, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. Saute for 1 minute.
  3. Add chicken and saute with aromatics just to get it started cooking.
  4. Add tomatoes (including liquid) and stock.
  5. Add zucchini and mushrooms to soup. Reduce heat to a low simmer (be careful not to let it boil or the chicken will turn tough) and cover soup with a lid. Simmer until zucchini is tender and chicken is cooked through, ~10 minutes.
  6. Remove soup from heat and stir in lemon juice. Season with some salt and pepper.
  7. Divide soup between serving bowls. Top with basil. Enjoy!
