Use good quality turkey or chicken stock. Home made is best - either from an instant pot or boiled for a good few hours so the stock is nice and concentrated and packed with flavour.
If you don’t have leftover roast turkey or chicken, you can simply roast some turkey or chicken breasts or thighs in the oven and then shred the meat for the soup.
Store in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
