Louisiana Spiced Chicken Soup

This recipe could easily be done with leftover turkey or even ham cubes if you'd like. It's a simple weeknight meal but makes for a great prep ahead dinner as well. Hope you enjoy!

Louisiana Spiced Chicken Soup

-4 chicken breasts (boiled until cooked through, then shredded)
-2 cups chicken stock
-3 bell peppers (red, yellow, orange)
-1 medium yellow onion, diced
-2 c. diced tomatoes (fresh but you can use canned)
-1/2 T EVOO
-salt/pepper to taste
-1.5 T Louisiana spices (that's the name)

-I boiled the chicken breasts first, then shredded them.
-Add evoo to pot and let heat on medium high
-Add onions first, lightly saute until translucent
-Add all other vegetables and spices
-Add chicken back to pot and chicken stock
-Bring to a boil, then reduce to slow simmer.

You can put this in a crockpot and let it cook all day. You can also used rotisserie chicken for a quick weeknight meal!
