From most recent book. Haven't tried. Reduced fat cream cheese adds richness to this quick chicken soup. To save time, purchse chopped frozen spinach rather than whole leaves.
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
- 2 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed
- 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
- In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occassionally until the onion is softened, about 7 minutes.
- Add chicken, and spinach; stir for 1 minute. Add cream cheese and stir until melted. Add broth, bring to a simmer, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve warm.
