As a mom of two preschool age boys, I am constantly searching for easy, yummy recipes that don't take a ton of time to make. This recipe was inspired by a recipe I found on the Gluten-Free Goddess web site, one of my favorite cooking web sites. Now, this recipe was a little too spicy for my boys, so I set aside some chicken for them and used the rest in the soup. This soup would be perfect for leftover Thanksgiving turkey, as well. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
