Quick, easy, healthy and delicious....I used leftover chicken and store bought pesto.
Chicken & Spinach Soup with Fresh Pesto
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
This fragrant, Italian-flavored soup takes advantage of quick-cooking ingredients—boneless, skinless chicken breast, bagged baby spinach and canned beans. It features a simple homemade basil pesto swirled in at the end to add a fresh herb flavor. If you are very pressed for time, you can substitute 3 to 4 tablespoons of a store-bought basil pesto.

I am so glad that I found this recipe!! I needed a quick, easy soup that I could throw everything into, and this was it. I used frozen chicken breasts, which I baked separately so as not to water down the soup, and I used store bought pesto which added a lot of flavor. I loved all of the flavors in this soup! I served it over homemade polenta to give it a little more texture because mine came out a little too liquidy for me. I recommend saving a little chicken broth for reheating as a lot of liquid absorbed in the fridge. Overall, I would say that this recipe was simple, delish and very flavorful. I will definitely make it again!!!
Easy to make and tasted delicious!
