This recipe came from the Soup Kettle section of the cookbook "365 Easy One-Dish Meals". It is different and yummy! I usually use canneloni beans instead of the limas.


  1. Chop the onion, celery, and red pepper. Mince the garlic. Peel and yams and cut into 3/4-inch pieces. Cut the chicken into small cubes.
  2. Heat the oil in a large soup pot. Add the chicken and cook, stirring, over high heat 4-5 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Add onion, celery, red pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Stir in chicken broth, water, yams and thyme. Heat to boiling, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  5. Add beans and cook 5 minutes longer. Stir in salt and pepper.

This hit the spot on the first cooler, windy eveing at the end of summer. We don't care for yams so I substituted regular potatoes as well as parsnips and added a bit extra of all veggies. I reduced the amount of chicken by half and used only chicken broth (no water). I used lima beans. All in all the soup is great with lots of flavour and lots of goodies for your health. I will be making this again for sure. It is great for using left over chicken, turkey or veggies.Thanks for sharing!
