Chicken and Kale Soup

We love Kale in our house and I am always looking for recipes that have Kale in them. When I saw this soup recipe, I knew I had to try it. Not only was it good, but it is low in calories (279), sugar (2 g) and high in protein (37 g). 

Chicken and Kale soup

The recipe goes together quickly which is great when you have bronchitis. My daughter came home from Vermont with it and of course, I just had to get it. Yuck!

All you need to do is brown the onions and chicken, I know it does not look like I browned the chicken in the picture, but I did. It seemed to change color when I cooked it.

Add the broth and heat through. Add the kale and simmer about 5 minutes. Serve with basil and Parmesan cheese. Dinner is ready!
Kale and Chicken Soup
Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables around and this is a great way to enjoy it. I don't know if it will cure my bronchitis but it sure made me feel better.

You could add other vegetables like potatoes, carrot, or leeks to this and it would be great too. Maybe next time I will.
