Greek Chicken and Feta Soup

Our Greek Chicken and Feta Soup is an incredibly healthy soup and a wonderful mix of protein, fiber, and vitamins. It makes a great lunch or dinner and the recipe can be multiplied for batch cooking. Top your soup with fresh feta to add a layer of depth to this soup’s flavor profile.

At Mountain Trek, we bow down to soups as the ultimate trail lunch. Warming your soup up and putting it in a thermos (double-walled & vacuum-sealed is ideal) before heading out to the trail will keep it nice and hot, and since it’s a cooked item (vs. something like a raw salad or sandwich), digestion is expedited, allowing you to take in ample calories without the risk of cramping. Also, if you are hiking in the spring or fall, a warm soup half-way through your hike is just the ticket.
