Home-Style Chicken and Ham Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by True Texas

This is a simple little Campbell Soup recipe I cut out of a magazine about 25 or 30 years ago. Sometimes I leave the green beans out since it only calls for a cup and sometimes I will put a whole can in. You can also double this recipe very easily. I've always loved the simplicity of this recipe, but I cut the amount of thyme down, seems to overpower the flavor too much.

Simple and delicious. I will use low sodium soups next time. I felt it was just a tad too salty, but that could have been the fault of the ham/bacon. Made for Belly Warmer: Soups and Stews January Photo Forum Event s:)
