So you want something warm, easy and healthy for dinner that doesn’t take too long? This is a quick and savory dish from the cookbook The Dinner Doctor by Anne Byrn, who brought us the popular Cake Doctor cookbooks.
The original name of this recipe is Half-Hour Chicken and Leek Stew. I lopped off the beginning because it took a bit longer. But it was worth it.
I expected to love this dish from eatingwell.com and wanted leftovers, so I doubled it for three of us. I didn’t double the gnocchi because of the carbs, and I added protein in the form of four Spinach & Asiago Chicken Sausages from Sam’s Club.
This homey soup is hearty and simple. The original recipe is from damndelicious.net; I adapted the version offered by The Candid Appetite. Dicing the vegetables means the soup cooks faster, making it a good weeknight meal for busy people.
