How to Make Sweet Potato and Kale Chicken Soup
This hearty fall soup recipe takes chicken soup to another level of deliciousness. To incorporate as much flavor as possible into this recipe, I start with a simple soup base of mirepoix. Mirepoix is the French name for a flavor base, in this case diced onions, celery and carrots. You can also add minced garlic for this recipe. This hearty mixture is sauteed over medium heat with one of my favorite olive oils – Pompeian Robust Extra-Virgin Olive Oil. I love this oil because it adds so much incredible flavor to this recipe. Once the mirepoix is ready, it’s added to a mixture of chicken broth and water. If desired, you can use only chicken broth; both homemade and store-bought chicken broth work well for this recipe.
Cooking the Soup
Next, it’s time for the chicken! Chicken breast meat works very well for this hearty soup but chicken thigh or even bone-in chicken drumsticks will also work well. I saute the cubed chicken in Pompeian Robust EVOO just until it’s nicely browned all over. The chicken doesn’t need to be cooked all the way through; it will finish cooking in the soup. Add the browned chicken into the soup, along with the cubed sweet potatoes. To add the maximum amount of flavor, I season this soup with salt and black pepper, smoked paprika and herbs de Provence – a mixture of basil, thyme, rosemary and lavender. This herb blend is perfect for this kale chicken soup! Simmer the soup away for about 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender.
Add the chopped kale last – it needs to cook for about 1 minute and then the soup can be enjoyed! Serve the soup with additional cracked black pepper and a drizzle of the Robust EVOO on top. I like to enjoy this soup with a side of warm rustic baguette.
