This was in a small cookbook I bought at a Christmas Holiday Sale, probably 10 years back. It was submitted by Ellen Yatze, from Ft. Myers Florida. Ellen, it is a great soup! It is funny how going through my old recipe boxes, I have all these old hand written recipes, I have yet to type up - ones I simply forgot about. The title says it all. But what I like about this is how quick it cooks up. Other than chopping your chicken (I used a store bought rotisserie) and basil, and cooking the bacon, the rest is open the can or jar and add to the pot. Simmer for 15 minutes and you have a hearty soup. By all means, when I have time, I would be using chicken breasts, fresh onions and would roast my own red peppers, but the whole idea behind this soup is "quick!" She suggested serving it with some parmesan polenta and of course with the olive garnish.
