Monday night has become slow cooker night at our house. My daughter has volleyball practice right during the time I would normally make dinner. Instead of giving in to the temptation to hit a drive through on our way home, I’ve been planning ahead so we can stay on track with our healthy habits.
This is a simple recipe, like Chicken Noodle Soup, but with potatoes instead of noodles. It is also a spin off from my Chicken Kale Soup. To get your green vegetable for this meal, have a simple salad of mixed greens with olive oil and your favorite vinegar.
