SOUP WEEK: Lemon Chicken & Spinach Soup

Are you ready to learn more about the soup that has tempted your taste-buds all week long? It's the soup that is featured on our SOUP WEEK banner!

Day 4:

Lemon Chicken 
& Spinach 

Holy cow...This soup is so different. But a very very GOOD different! If you like the flavors of chicken, garlic, onion, Parmesan and lemon, well you will probably enjoy this soup! It's a trip to Tuscany in your mouth, people. My whole family devoured it...and mind you, I have a six, four & a two year old. My husband enjoyed it as well and mentioned that it would be a great soup to make when you're battling a cold or sore throat. Smart guy! I have to agree with him! I have only made it once but it will most definitely be repeated!

2 small skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cooked & shredded 
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
3/4 Cup Parmesan cheese
6 Cups chicken broth (48 oz)
1/4 Cup or less of lemon juice
2 Cups of fresh spinach, cut up
Salt and Pepper

In a large pot, warm the oil over medium-high heat.
Add the onion and garlic, cooking till translucent.
Add the broth & lemon juice.
Bring to a boil.
Add in the Parmesan cheese & reduce heat to medium.
Allow to simmer uncovered, stirring frequently for 15 minutes.
Add the spinach & chicken.
Continue to simmer until the spinach is wilted.
Season with salt & pepper.
Serves 4-6.
Optional: Top with more shredded Parmesan cheese.

Such a DELICIOUS blend of flavors!
I can't tell you enough how much I enjoyed it!
Hopefully you will as well!

Stay tuned... 
for one more day of soup!
Tomorrow we have a SURPRISE for you :)
