Chicken, Sweet Potato and Spinach Soup

Rated as 4.92 out of 5 Stars

"My mom made this for me every time I was sick; it was the only thing I could keep down. It was mild but I love it even when I'm not under the weather. She would use her own roasted chickens, but when I'm not feeling well I don't feel like roasting my own chicken, and the store-bought ones work in a pinch. Serve with crusty bread."

Very simple recipe that resulted in such an incredible product. This is going to be a staple in my house all winter long.

I've made this a few times now, and I like how simple and fast it is. Healthy, too. I generally double it, and use shredded cooked chicken or leftover chicken picked from a rotisserie chicken....

I added onions while boiling the sweet potatoes and subbed Montreal Seasoning for salt and pepper. Incredible

I did add finally chopped ginger. Really enjoyed this soup.

I used frozen spinach but the rest of the recipe as detailed. It was a hit with a fussy eater (my hubby) and my mother-in-law.
