DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season chicken breasts with salt and black pepper to taste and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
  • When cool enough to handle, dice the meat and set aside until needed.
  • While the chicken breasts are baking, heat the oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the butter and melt. Saute the onions and celery until the onions are translucent, about 6 to 7 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, tarragon, oregano, paprika and remaining 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Cook, stirring, for 3 or 4 minutes.
  • Add the flour and stir until well-combined. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  • Add the tomatoes and cream. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add the reserved chicken breast and simmer 10 minutes more. Just before serving, stir in the spinach.
