This is a quick, delicious meal. Basically done in one pot. Clean up is a breeze. I used a rotisserie chicken to make it even easier. I double the batch, as my kids love the leftovers. It's creamy good! The spinach is cooked to perfection, in just a few minutes. I hope you like it as much as we do..I just serve it with some crusty Vienna bread as it is quite filling. Enjoy! My photo's Enjoy!

    Note: I have tried this with other cream soups as well, also have added roasted red peppers. You could add just about anything to this, and it would still be delicious. Enjoy!
