Chicken & Spinach Soup with Fresh Pesto

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (435 votes)

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 used 2 carrots chopped in a vita-mixer, used black eyed peas(it's what I had) did not chop spinach and did not take out chicken (I had cooked chicken and cut into pieces). I added 1 TBLE pesto sauce as well. It was the most delicious flavorful soup! Not to mention how easy and quick to put together. A KEEPER!!!

This soup was incredible- I added a 9 oz package of whole wheat cheese tortellini during the last 10 minutes or so, as well as a tsp or so of red chili flakes and a dash of tabasco which was just perfect.

I also diced the chicken while still uncooked and then left it in for the duration of cooking (didn't take it out as directed to make it easier) and it turned out great.

Very highly recommended.

This soup was delicious. I tripled the garlic and used a rotisserie chicken and red pepper.
