Over the years I have slowly turned my husband into a soup lover, in fact, he used to never consider soup to be a meal which made this soup lover eye-roll all the time, haha! However, through patience and persistence, he’s been turned into a non-complaining soup eater, ha!! This soup along with Instant Pot Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup, are some of his favorites. 

Everything about this soup is so simple to throw together, I made it even easier by using rotisserie chicken. Also if you don’t want to chop your veggies you can purchase mirepoix from your Trader Joe’s, save you some time!

This meal was inspired by my craving for L&L Hawaiian bbq, a local hole in the wall Hawaiin food joint! Oh man… it is truly delicious, and probably full of ingredients you don’t want to find yourself eating every day! My favorite plate is the Hawaiin chicken plate served with Healthier Hawaiian Macaroni Salad salad and rice.
