Chicken Kale Soup

This past week we received kale and sweet potatoes in our CSA vegetable bag... and my friend Andrea posted this amazing soup... so what is one to do?  Make Chicken Kale soup.

I search for a recipe and low and behold found a recipe with kale and sweet potatoes at and here it is!

2 chicken breasts (I used the left over chicken from a whole chicken I roasted yesterday)
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 tsp. olive oil
1 large onion chopped
2 celery stalks
3 cloves of garlic (from my CSA)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
6 cups chicken broth
1 large sweet potatoe (from my CSA)
3 cups of kale (from my CSA)
1 fresh jalapeno (from my CSA)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro

Heat a large nonstick pot or Dutch oven over medium-low heat, add the oil and the onions and celery and cook until soft and golden, about 8 to 10 minutes, then add the garlic and dry spices and cook 2 to 3 minutes.  Add the chicken broth, chicken, jalapeno and cilantro.  Cover and cook 20 minutes, then add the sweet potato and kale and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked, about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the chicken, shred or cut up and discard the bones. Return to the pot, discard the jalapeno and serve the soup into 6 bowls.

So yummy and so tasty... love when my CSA veggies get eatin'
