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.

How to Make Chicken, White Bean, Spinach & Parmesan Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Add diced tomatoes, V-8, beans to broth, stir and bring back to a simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. Ladle into bowls and top with Parm. Enjoy!
  6. *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
