  • 1 cup Pork (steak or roast) cut into 1” cubes
  • 1 lb Smoked Sausage, cut into slices
  • 2 Skinless, boneless, and skinless Chicken Thighs and cut into one” cubes
  • 1 Chicken Breast Cut into 1” cubes
  • 1. (10oz) 1 (10oz) Can Rotel

  • 11/2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1. Tablespoon Kitchen Bouquet
  • 1. (10oz) 1 Can of Creamy Chicken Soup

  • 1 lb Pasta, Farfalle or Penne
  • 3. Green Onions, chopped


  1. Add the bacon, bell pepper, onion, and celery to the big Dutch Oven (or cast iron pot) at medium-high temperature. The bacon will cook until it is completely soft and the bacon cooked.
  2. Add garlic, and cook for another 3 minutes.
  3. Smoked and brown pork and cook for about 20-25 minutes, until the sausage begins to caramelize slightly.
  4. Add chicken pieces together with cooked Rotel, Creole Seasoning, and Thyme, and cook for about 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  5. To the pot, add chicken broth, water, soups, and kitchen flowers, and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
  6. Incorporate the Pasta and stir, and bring to boiling.
  7. Then you can turn off the heat and then press the noodles into the liquid until the noodles are all in the liquid. The liquid will completely cover the noodles.
  8. Place the lid on top and bake for one hour. After an hour, take it out of the oven. Don’t open the oven until 10 mins.
  9. After 10 minutes, take off the lid, and give a thorough stirring in the middle of the saucepan. Then add some chopped onions, and then serve.


  • If you’d prefer to leave out the bacon, you’ll have to substitute the cooking oil with another, such as vegetable or olive oil.
  • If you prefer a bit of spice, you can sprinkle a bit of cayenne (to the taste).
  • There’s plenty of salt in the canned soup. However, you are free to add black pepper if you’d like.
