Tuscan Chicken Soup. Easy peasy 30-minute meal with leftover rotisserie or spatchcocked chicken. And, oh, so tasty.
Tuscan Chicken Soup is simply delicious.
Every once in awhile I pick up one of those roasted chickens at the grocery store. I love them because they are juicy and packed with flavor. And the whole chicken provides several meals for Don and me. One way I use it is in Tuscan Chicken Soup. The broth is light and flavorful and the veggies are crisp and scrumptious. If you don’t have leftover rotisserie chicken, you can use canned chicken and it works wonderfully, too.
What is Tuscan Chicken Soup?
Tuscan Chicken Soup is basically a chicken soup that includes beans, chicken and greens, in this case, spinach. This soup recipe is a quick, light one-pot meal. Perfect for lunch or supper. If you would like a little more flavor, throw in one-quarter cup of chopped fresh basil when you add the spinach. Yum! Add some French Bread and a Green Salad and call it a meal.
I know you’re gonna love this easy meal.
