I love the Zuppa Tuscana from Olive Garden, but my family isn't very big on Italian sausage-so I tweeked the recipe a bit to fit our family's tastes. Came out wonderful!! You can add as much spinach or kale as you want! Freezes well!
2Add garlic, onion and chicken to bacon grease and sauté until chicken is done.
3In a large stock pot, add water and bullion and bring to a boil.
4Add potatoes to boiling water and boil until potatoes are soft.
5Shred chicken and add chicken, sautéed garlic and onions with the bacon drippings into the stock pot.
6Add heavy cream to the broth, boiling to thicken. Make broth as thick or thin as you want using as much or as little cream as you want. If it is not thick enough, you can whisk 4 TBS flour with 4 TBS water in a bowl and add to mixture to thicken.
7After the desired consistency is reached, add spinach or kale and allow to wilt.
8Remove from heat and enjoy! I served this with garlic bread!
