Chicken Soup My Way
Chicken Soup seemed to be the call of the day so I cooked a cut up chicken for about an hour and then let it cool on the stove.
Now what to put in my soup, well Kale seems to be the veggie of the 2012. Everywhere I look the merits of Kale are being touted, juicing seems to be the biggest buzz word, however, I like to eat my food not simply drink it mashed up. So to keep my soup in the low carb category I opted to add Kale instead of rice or noodles.
(back to cooking)
So while I de-boned and shredded the chicken, I let the broth simmer (I added some Knorr's chicken stock, rosemary, celery salt, salt and pepper to the broth).
I added back the shredded chicken and finally tossed in about half a bag of kale. I let this simmer for about 7 minutes and then it was time for soup.
My husband after an initial skeptical look devoured his bowl and declared it was really good as he headed for a second serving.
