Homemade Bacon Chicken Kale Soup is loaded with vegetables, lean ground chicken meatballs that are soft and soak all the great flavors from the broth, crispy smoked bacon bites and a healthy dose of kale, that adds just the right amount of chewiness and a load of vitamins and nutrients.
I used only 3 slices of smoked bacon and that was enough to add depth and flavor to the broth. I prefer this soup with chicken meatballs, but if you don’t have time to make them you can cube 2 chicken breast and you are good to go. In that case you would have to sauté the meat with the veggies.
This bacon chicken and kale soup is delicious while still being healthy. In particular, I like all the different textures here, the moist chicken meatballs, the chewy kale, the crispy bacon, the variety of veggies, you have here potatoes, peppers and corn, all nice and soft, but not over cooked.
