Gyros soup

It’s still cold outside so I decided to make a soup! Soup is always good, not just when the weather is cold. My husband loves this soup, the kids pick the peppers out. It’s hard to find a recipe that the whole family likes.

You will need chicken breast, red peppers, onions, chicken broth, garlic, heavy cream and cheese whiz. Cheese whiz makes the soup thicker and creamy. If you don’t want to use cheese whiz, you can use cream cheese instead. Mix cream cheese with the chicken broth until it’s smooth, then add it to the soup.

Cut the meat into thin short stripes. Marinate the chicken breast with olive oil, Greek seasoning, salt and pepper and grated garlic. Let it stand vor 30 min. You can also marinate the meat a day before und place it in the fridge. Cut peppers and onion in dices.

Preheat a skillet with 2 Tbsp. olive oil over high heat. Fry the chicken until it is a nice brown. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil and add onions and red peppers. Fry another 5 minutes or so.

If your skillet is not deep enough for the soup, stuff the meat, onions and peppers into a larger pot.

Peel some potatoes and cut them into cubes, add to the meat.

Add some chicken broth and heavy cream, then cook for 30 minutes on low heat. Add cheese whiz and cook for another 20 minutes. Stir in between from time to time.
