Wonderful flavourful hearty soup!! Because I used 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts I chose to remove all visible fat and cut them into bite sized pieces in the begining and did not puree the soup veggies. I had no zucchini but had some fresh spinach to use up, also discovered the can of cream style corn I thought I had was not there, so had to use a can of corn kernels. Turned out delicious and I will be making it again, it will be great to have in the freezer over the winter and made a very tasty supper tonight. Thanks for posting.
