Harvestland Chicken makes quick work of a delicious hot soup for dinner @momsmeet @harvestland #sponsored

Disclosure:  I am a member of MomsMeet. I received vouchers to purchase HARVESTLAND® products of my choice to review along with a vintage timer and copper measuring cups.

Winter is time for soup. I have to say we make soup a few times a week once the weather gets cold. One of my faves is any kind of chicken soup. Harvestland makes it easy for me. They are a company that truly believes that all families can eat healthy meals no matter how busy they are. They understand my drive to put fresh food on my table every day. No fast food here in my house. Harvestland  created a line of chicken, turkey, and pork products that are pure and simple, just like our ancestors would have eaten. That is one of the reasons their products are staples in my home.

Harvestland adheres to very strict USDA Process Verified guidelines. Each one of their chickens, turkey and hogs are raised on family farms. They are fed an all-vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. No antibiotics, ever either. I feel confident that when I choose Harvestland I can make a natural, healthy, and budget-friendly choice that is not going to break the bank OR make me feel guilty. 

They have lots of variety and I can pick and choose what works for me depending on the day or recipe. They shared a few yummy recipes with me and it was hard to decide. I love a colorful orzo soup and kielbasa makes it filling and fast.

There is nothing like warm Spanikopita Pie either. Harvestland Turkey makes it a snap even on a weeknight with their easy recipe. This one is staying top of mind for February....brr, I love a warm savory pie for dinner when the weather is chilly.

So many yummy recipes to try it was hard to decide. I finally settled on on Gran Gran's Chicken 'n Dumplings. I always keep Harvestland in the house anyway since chicken is a staple here.

I was not in the mind to get out my big electronic pressure cooker so I settled on a stovetop version. I went for the Harvestland Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts instead of the whole chicken in the interest of time. Of course I can never follow a recipe exactly. I added a few more veggies to ramp it all up.  

Harvestland Chicken makes it easy with all the different options available. 

I added some chopped onion and sautéed it in oil. Then tossed in fresh sliced carrots, celery and parsnips. In went the cut chicken. There is nothing like a warm soup on a cold winter day to put a smile on everyone's face. The house smelled so good while my Harvestland soup was cooking!

I added a blend of organic chicken broth and filtered water.  Salt, pepper and I let it boil for a few minutes until the chicken was fully cooked along with my fresh and colorful veggies. 

I mixed up yummy little dumplings (okay they were not so time I will make them smaller) quickly with self-rising flour, water, salt, pepper and a bit of sage. I shaped them into elongated balls and tossed them in the soup. It came out yummy. They have lots of options from chicken to turkey and pork. It definitely helps me put together delicious meals quickly even on a weeknight. Harvestland has lots of ideas and recipes for busy mamas like you and me on their website so take a peek. They aren't just chicken either they have lots of other options. I was able to get my Harvestland chicken at my local Walmart so try it and let me know what you think.
