Healthy Chicken Vegetable Soup

I make a pot of soup practically every week in the winter. My daughters are always requesting vegetable soup and sometimes I like to add protein so it can be a meal in a bowl. What I like about this recipe is that the ground chicken makes it a bit different than soup with shredded chicken. Delicious!

Healthy Chicken Vegetable Soup
1 pound ground chicken
1 yellow onion, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 carrots, chopped
2 zucchini, chopped
1 sprig fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
6 cups of chicken broth
handful of torn kale
salt and pepper to taste

Saute chicken and onion in soup pot over medium high heat until chicken is cooked and onions translucent, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 2 more minutes. Add chicken broth, carrots and thyme and bring to a boil. Add zucchini and simmer for 15 minutes. Add torn kale and simmer for 5 more minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy with crusty bread and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
