Savory chicken sausage, a bit of smokey bacon, and rich chicken broth clings to every nook and cranny of kale in this amazing soup that is a family favorite! We are serving this soup at our annual Xmas Eve party, where every year, we have a huge soup bar for our huge family of about 40 people.

You can’t go wrong with this soup, which happens to be easy to make too!

Happy holidays to you!

Chicken Sausage and Kale Soup
This soup is AMAZING! It's so delicious and big flavor clings to every nook and cranny of the kale. Bonus - kale adds vitamins and fiber too, helping to fight disease! We use chicken sausage and a little bit of nitrate-free bacon to give it lots of flavor. You'll love it, my sister and I always get seconds!
  1. 1 lb. chicken sausage, mild Italian
  2. 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  3. 1 large onion, diced
  4. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  5. 4 cups chicken broth
  6. 3 cups (or so) fresh kale, tough stems removed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  1. In a non-stick or lightly oiled pan, cook the sausage in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until crumbly and cooked through. Drain and set aside.
  2. Cook the bacon in the same pot until crisp, then drain, leaving a few tablespoons of drippings with the bacon in the bottom of the pot.
  3. Stir in the onions and garlic; cook until onions are soft.
  4. Add chicken broth and sausage and bring to a simmer. Add kale just before serving and mix until it wilts.

  1. hey amber looks delicious!!!! cant wait to try it!! and I was wondering my mom has this diet thing that her doctor is making her do its low sodium so not a lot of salt:-( and I was wondering if you could maybe find a recipe that has low sodium. That would be a life saver I have been eating at this place called Rubio’s for about 6 months straight and i’m kinda get tired of all the fish tacos
