Chicken and Parmesan Soup with Spinach Recipe
what you'll need
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion diced
- 3/4 cup carrots diced, about 2 medium
- 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs cut into 2" pieces
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tsp marjoram
- 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 5 oz baby spinach
- 1 - 15 oz can great northern beans drained
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated
- salt and pepper to taste
let's do it
- In a large soup pot or Dutch oven heat 1 Tbsp olive oil. When hot, add onion, carrot and chicken pieces and sauté for 8 minutes stirring occasionally. Add garlic and marjoram and sauté 1 minute more.
- Add chicken broth to pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove thighs from pot and shred then add back to the pot along with fresh spinach and beans. Cook for 5 minutes until spinach is bright green and wilted.
- Just before serving stir in 1 cup Parmesan cheese and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper (taste for salt because the cheese is salty) and serve with shredded Parmesan for garnish.
