I’m popping in late to my usual blog game on the blustery morning to bring you recipe part deux for the Progresso soup-er challenge!
Since I went vegniverous with my Vegan Pad Thai Soup the first time around, I wanted beef…..errr poultry up my game for this round.
Due to the process Progresso’s chefs use to simmer the real bones, Progresso Cooking Stocks have rich, meaty flavor and are full of body, making them ideal for adding deep, complex flavor to many dishes including soups, stews, sauces and gravies…and turning your favorite salad into it’s winter alter-ego.
Because some days it’s even too cold for me to eat a salad. And soups are pretty much liquid salads.
You know what, let’s just stick with soup. That sounds a lot more appealing. You know what else does?
Dinner ready in 10 minutes. YASSS.
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 4 cups chopped kale
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
- 3 cups Progresso chicken stock
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup light Caesar dressing
- additional Parmesan cheese
- croutons (optional)
- Heat a medium stockpot over medium heat. Add oil.
- Add chopped kale, and sauté for 3 minutes.

- Add chicken and stock, and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low, and add in dressing and cheese.
- Remove from heat, and serve.

Now if you’re a crouton fan, I highly suggest adding those seasoned bits of joy to your bowl. I on the other hand, prefer to add ALL THE CHEESE.
