Chicken, Sweet Potato and Spinach Soup

Rated as 4.89 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."

  1. Heat chicken stock and sweet potato in a stockpot over high heat. Cook until sweet potato is soft enough to pierce with a fork, about 10 minutes. Stir in spinach, chicken, and garlic; simmer until spinach is wilted and broth is reduced slightly, 10 to 15 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.

A simple and yummy soup.! I kept the ingredients the same. I used my savory homemade chicken broth and it turned out wonderful. This recipe is a keeper!
