Simmer all , covered, for 45 minutes, or until the chicken is tender. Remove the chicken from the pot. Debone the chicken, chop the meat and reserve. Add to the pot the potatoes, green cabbage, kale, and turnips. Simmer, covered, for 25 minutes. Return the boned chicken to the pot and add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Simmer a few more minutes until all is hot, and serve. The soup keeps well for a few days in the refrigerator.

Comments: There are many versions of this wonderful soup, but its roots seem to be in Spain itself. It is a classic combination of beans, meats and vegetables.
