Super Speedy Soup

Packed with vegetables and herbs, this chicken-based soup doesn’t need hours of simmering to deliver cold-weather comfort. You’ll use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and chick peas to add protein, and fresh kale to bulk up on fiber and vitamins. Check your produce section for pre-chopped onion to make it even easier on yourself.
