Spring is right around the corner and it looks like we have one more cold spell coming this weekend.
Give this creamy chicken soup recipe a try. It’s super simple. Only takes about 30 min and 1 pot.
Obviously you can use whatever chicken you prefer, but my suggestion would be to go to your local grocery store and pick up a rotisserie chicken. They are delicious and all you have do is shred it. You don’t have to take the time to prep and cook the chicken.
1 1/2 lbs shredded rotisserie chicken
1/2 lbs bacon
1 qt chicken stock
1 cup carrots, sliced
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped
2 cups spinach
1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
1/2 Tbsp Thyme
Over medium heat, cook bacon until desired crispy-ness. Once cooked, remove from heat. Add carrots, onion, and
celery. Saute until tender. Next add mushrooms, garlic, and thyme. Add one quart of chicken stock and let simmer.
Then add 2 cups of raw spinach to the mixture. Once wilted, add shredded chick and cooked rice and stir.
Finally, add milk and heavy cream to thicken. Salt and pepper to taste.
