Chicken Pepper Pot Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Tina and Angie

I got this fabulous recipe when I vacationed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The soup was on the Boma - Flavors of Africa Buffet. When I inquired about a cookbook with the recipe, the waitress went & got the recipe from the kitchen. This is posted in the same manner I got it, but I'll tell you that finding 1 gallon containers of broth is difficult. So I use 10 14oz cans, it's a little more, but just as good. I also usually use 2 poblanos. Using ready to go chicken tenders is a big time saver. I just sautee them in a little sesame oil & garlic before I dice them. This soup is very tasty and borderline addicitive. I've made several times since I got back. It is absolutley delicious the next day and freezes well. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Rich, spicy flavors. Easy to make. Warms you from the inside-out. I agree that this soup can easily become addictive. I served it once and already have people asking me to make it for them again.
