Stoup-Part Soup, Part Stew

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes to both make and eat.  It is a comforting, healthy, and fulfilling stoup…part soup, part stew.  I first made it when I was tired of eating chicken and vegetables, and was inspired by one of Rachael Ray’s stoup recipes.  It provides a hearty meal and plenty of leftovers or stoup to share!  Follow the recipe below!

1 Pack of Chicken

1 Pack of Turkey Kielbasa

2 TBSP Olive Oil

2 Large handfuls of baby carrots

2 Stalks of celery

32 Ounces Chicken Stock

1 Can Black Beans

1 Can White Beans

1 Cup Edamame Beans

1 Cup Corn

Black Pepper, Onion Powder, and Garlic Salt to taste

Shredded Cheese and Black Olives to garnish

Clean and cut chicken into bite size pieces

Add chicken to large medium-hot pot on stove

Add spices

Cut turkey kielbasa in half and then into bite size pieces; add to cooking chicken

While chicken and turkey cook on stove, cut baby carrots in bite size pieces; add to pot

Clean celery and cut into bite size pieces, and stir into pot

Season with spices and stir to combine

Chicken, Turkey Kielbasa, Carrots, and Celery

Put lid on pot and cook for 15 minutes

Add chicken stock, turn heat to high, and bring to boil

Once chicken stock is boiling, turn heat to low-medium, add beans, edamame, and corn

Add spices again, stir, cover with lid, and cook for 20 minutes to let tastes combine

(If you can make the stoup in the morning or afternoon, this is best so all of the flavors can combine…if you have a bay leaf, you can one or two as well.)

Stoup cooking!

Serve and garnish with shredded cheese and olives!


You can add or subtract some of the ingredients I used…you can use green beans, peas, onions, peppers, or even tortellini in the recipe.  Do you have a favorites soup, stew, or stoup recipe?  If so, leave it in the comments below or email me at newsforchews@gmail.com!
