Easy A-B-C Soup
2 c. cubed, cooked chicken or turkey
2 c. frozen mixed vegetables (I always use the California blend.)
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/4 tsp. thyme leaves
1 bay leaf
6 c. chicken broth
1 c. alphabet macaroni (or you can use the little rings if you can't find the A-B-C pasta.)
salt & pepper
In 4 qt. Dutch oven combine chicken or turkey, frozen veg., celery, onion, thyme, bay leaf & broth. Bring to boil. Reduce heat & stir in macaroni. Simmer 12 - 15 minutes or 'til veg & macaroni are tender. Remove bay leaf. Season to taste.
