lentil chicken bacon soup

I had cooked lentils left over from a failed Indian dish, rotisserie chicken from making Anne’s White Bean Chicken Chili Soup, and turkey bacon left over from breakfast sandwiches. Voila- a simple “cleaning out the fridge” soup was born!

In a pot, combine about a cup of cooked lentils {make your own or try Trader Joe’s Steamed Lentils}, a handful of shredded rotisserie chicken pieces, and two pieces of prepared turkey bacon, ripped into pieces. Add half a bay leaf and enough chicken broth to cover the ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Remove the bay leaf before enjoying!
