Today was another beautiful day here. Since I was finishing up my new recipe project (that will be posted tomorrow..."hint hint"), I kept dinner quick and simple. Since I am full swing into the "fall mode" I decided to make soup. I didn't have time to make anything complicated and I was in the mood for chicken soup. I had hubby pick up a rotisserie chicken on his way home. While he was foraging for the chicken (caveman that he isn't)...I got started on my easy peasy soup.
I heated a bit of olive oil in a medium stock pot and filled the pot to the top with about half a pound of fresh baby kale (it cooks down drastically the same way spinach does). During the 5 minutes it took the kale to cook down, I diced one medium carrot and tossed that into the pan and then added 4 cups of chicken stock. By the time hubby got home with the chicken, I was ready to add chicken to the soup. I removed and diced about 2 cups of chicken and added it to the pot along with the leg and thigh bones that I removed the meat from (to add a bit more flavor). I covered my pot and let it simmer on the stove for about 30 minutes while I got some other things done. It was quick, colorful and delicious. How is that for a soup that contained only 4 ingredients!
I snapped a couple photos for you to see below. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see my NEW recipe. This one is a good one...you are going to want to make it...trust me! :-) Enjoy!
