I had something very similar at a neighbors house and it was so delicious. After getting the recipe I played with it just a little, made some additions and have an even better version of the original. I hope you like it, too!
For a quick, throw-it-together soup that is ready in practically no time, this is it.
prep time15 Min
cook time30 Min
14oz chicken broth, low sodium or homemade stock
14oz diced tomatoes with liquid
12oz v-8 juice
1 - 2 can(s)
15oz cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
crushed red pepper or to taste
boneless, skinless chicken breasts, in 1-inch cubes
granulated garlic or powder
granulated onion or powder
1 - 2 can(s)
14.5oz creamed corn
bag prewashed baby spinach, stems removed, whole or chopped
fresh basil, coarsely chopped (1/4 c if dried)
salt & pepper to taste
grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese
How To Make
Cut raw chicken into cubes and season with salt and pepper. Either brown in a little olive oil, in a Dutch oven, or set aside raw.
To Dutch oven add broth, granulated onion & garlic, corn and crushed red pepper; bring to a boil.
*If you browned the chicken stir well to get the browned bits and drippings incorporated into the broth.
Add chicken then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add diced tomatoes, V-8, beans to broth, stir and bring back to a simmer for 15 minutes.
Stir in baby spinach and basil. Continue cooking soup until spinach is wilted and chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes longer. Taste and add salt & pepper as needed.
Ladle into bowls and top with Parm. Enjoy!
*TIP: For a richer flavor pan sear the chicken breasts before or after cutting into cubes. Brown on both sides in a 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil. When browned remove from pot and set aside.
*Options: Use Turkey or Sweet Italian sausage instead of Chicken
