Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Kale Soup

I saw this soup on Gina’s Skinny Recipes and immediately thought that we would like it.  Al and I love both kale and sweet potatoes, and with 2 chicken breasts, it would have plenty of meat for Al.  I changed it up a little, I doubled the spices and kale, and added a lot more jalapeno.  It tasted wonderful and I am definitely going to make it again.

Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Kale Soup

2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 large onion, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
3 crushed garlic cloves
6 fresh jalapenos, seeded and chopped
1 (49 1/2 oz) can chicken broth
1 t adobo seasoning salt
1 t oregano
1 t thyme
1 t cumin
2 large bunches kale, roughly chopped
1 bunch cilantro, chopped

Place chicken breasts, sweet potato, onion, celery, garlic, jalapeno, chicken broth, and  spices in a large soup pot.  Bring to a boil, stir to mix, and lower heat to simmer.  Cover and cook, stirring occasionally for about an hour.  Remove chicken, cool, and shred or cut up, return to pot.  Add kale, cover, and cook for another 30 minutes.  Turn off heat, add cilantro, stir to mix, and serve.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
