Do you have a “Picky Palate?”

One of my favorite food bloggers in the online foodie blogosphere is “The Picky Palate”.  Jenny is a stay at home mom with two little boys living in San Diego.  Her food blog, “Dresses Up Original Family Style Recipes For Even Your Pickiest Eaters.” She has wonderful photography, delicious recipes and just great ideas when it comes to dinner.  Her blog is super popular even among those who aren’t moms but simply love cooking quick and delicious dishes.

We had the huge honor of working with Jenny this past summer for the Swanson Mommy Blogger Dinner Challenge and she was just wonderful.  She is a creative cook with a talented eye for food photography; you should definetly check out her blog.  Since Jenny was the winner of our Dinner Challenge, today I wanted to share with you her winning recipe: BBQ Chicken Soup.  Jenny created this recipe with just $10.00 and a 12.5 oz. can of Swanson Premium Chunk Chicken! 

BBQ Chicken Soup 
From: Picky Palate

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh minced garlic
11 oz can corn with peppers, drained
2 12 oz cans Swanson’s Chicken, drained
1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt
1/2 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1.     Heat oil into a medium pot over medium heat.  When hot, sauté onions for 5 minutes or until softened.  Stir in garlic, corn and chicken breast; mix to combine.  Pour in chicken broth, BBQ sauce, salt, pepper, garlic salt and cilantro leaves.   Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes or until ready to serve.  Garnish each bowl with a fresh sprig of cilantro.

Best, and until next time, Kaitlin!
