Tonight I threw together a soup for dinner. This is simple, quick and hearty. BF is not keen on anything healthy, and he has a long list of things he doesn't eat. I sneak vegetables into everything I cook to try and keep him nutritionally balanced, and adding things like kielbasa to keep him interested. We were really impressed with how good it was, so I am posting it here so I can remember and make it again. I am sure you could add almost any other sturdy vegetable to this and it would work fine.
- 1 lb kielbasa
- 1⁄2 rotisserie-cooked chicken
- 1 tablespoon garlic flakes, roasted
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 1⁄4 cup bacon bits
- 32 ounces chicken broth
- 1 cup frozen blackened corn
- 1 cup frozen Italian cut green beans
- 1 cup frozen carrots
- 1 potato, diced
- 1⁄2 cup wide egg noodles (optional)
- Cut kielbasa into 1/4" thick slices, and then slice then slice each slice in half. Put in large pot.
- Debone and shred chicken (store bought pre-cooked rotisserie) Add to pot.
- Add roasted garlic and herbs, then turn heat on stove to high (add a little of the broth) and Sautee to meld flavors, then add the rest of the broth.
- Add all vegetables.
- Optional: add noodles once soup is boiling.
- Let it simmer for 30 minutes.
