Chicken, Sun-dried Tomato and Chickpea Soup

Updated: Jan 9, 2018

Seriously. I cannot say enough about how delicious this soup was. AND, the kids loved it too! I decided Sunday afternoon that I wanted to make soup for dinner, but couldn't quite find a recipe I was thrilled about. We did only minimal grocery shopping this weekend (busy week this week so just bought the essentials), which means I didn't have many options for ingredients, and there was no way I was going to bundle both kids up to head back out to the store after running around all morning. After scrolling through recipes for a while I decided to just wing it and loosely follow a few recipes using what had in my cupboard and fridge. I've been doing this more recently, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. This WORKED. It was also super easy to make and is RD approved! Tasty-CHECK, kid-approved-CHECK, easy recipe-CHECK, healthy-CHECK. So, I definitely had to share this deliciousness with you. See the recipe below!

I'm not going to write a bunch of paragraphs going into detail on everything, because's so easy. (And, I know when I want a recipe, I just want the recipe, not a story about how it was made!) But if you have any questions, please let me know!
