Chicken Veggie and Kale Soup~Paleo friendly

Ive been thinking about making this for a couple of days now, but I just got around to it today!! I love when you have a thought of something in your mind and it comes to life in a bowl!! There are different varieties you can make of this soup but it is certainly tasty and is a Paleo friendly recipe!!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and its also great because you can make it and snack on it for a couple  days!!! And a side note for this recipe, I made it with basil chicken meatballs that I had, but you can just used chicken breasts and it will be just as delicious!!

1 1/2 lbs of chicken (I used basil chicken meatballs but boneless breasts are fine or ground chicken or turkey. Whatever you have available
3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1 inch cubes
1 med onion, diced
3 small carrots, diced
1 small bell pepper, diced
6 cloves of garlic, minced (or less if your scerd)
3 cups of fresh kale, chopped
8 cups of chicken stock, or you could use water and salt it but stock adds more flavor

In a large stock pot saute sweet potatoes, onion, carrots, garlic, and bell pepper  with coconut oil or olive oil for about 10 min. Add stock and chicken and cook until chicken is cooked all the way through. Add kale and simmer for 5 minutes. Drizzle with fresh squeezed lemon juice and 700 dashes of hot sauce....cuz that's what I did!!

Now if you were not following a paleo lifestyle you could add rice to this soup if you wanted, you would just add it at the same time as the chicken!!
