Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but this hearty supper soup takes just an hour to make. The secret? Deli-roasted chicken and precooked sausage. Pair with breadsticks or a crusty baguette for a perfect winter meal that will fill your house with good smells.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrot (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery (1 stalk)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
  • 2 14 1/2 - ounce cans chicken broth or 3 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups cubed potatoes, parsnips, butternut squash and/or sweet potatoes

  • 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper or 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup bite-size pieces cooked chicken (deli-roasted, refrigerated cooked strips, or leftovers; about 8 ounces)
  • 8 ounces cooked turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
