I love the convenience of a one-dish meal simmering on my stovetop. And yes, even though we’re in the heat of summer, that doesn’t stop me from making a pot of soup. Over the weekend I smoked a chicken knowing I’d have leftovers to create a savory soup during the week. Now don’t let the smoked chicken scare you, this recipe can be easily created with a store bought, fully cooked rotisserie chicken. In my kitchen the key word you need to learn is “improvise” and there’s plenty of room for that in this recipe. The flavor and textures of this soup were out of this world, I guarantee you’ll love the mild smoky flavor.
