Each spoonful is loaded full of succulent chicken, tangy artichokes, fresh veggies and a creamy broth to wrap it all up in. I think that this soup is best served with some warm, flaky biscuits or a crunchy baguette. This is a bowl of soup that you want to snuggle up on the couch with while a feel-good movie is playing in the background. It is good, old-fashioned comfort food!

This soup is perfect for any weeknight meal, snow day treat or Sunday dinner.

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders or breasts
  • 64 oz chicken stock
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced carrots,  peeled and cut into 1/4 inch rounds (I typically use baby carrots so I don’t have to peel them)
  • 14 oz can artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 5 cups fresh spinach

Instructions

  1. In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, bring the chicken stock to a low boil over medium heat. Add in the chicken, onion and carrots and bring to a low boil. Boil the chicken for about 20 minutes, or until it is cooked all the way through. Remove the chicken from the stock and set aside to cool slightly. 
  2. While the chicken is cooling, add the artichoke hearts, rosemary, thyme, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper in with the stock. Reduce the heat to low. Using two forks, gently shred the chicken and then add it back into the soup. 
  3. With the soup at a simmer on low heat, stir the heavy cream and sour cream into the soup. Allow the soup to come back up to a simmer, but do not let it boil once the heavy cream has been added. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the soup has thickened slightly and reduced. Stir in the spinach and allow to simmer for a few minutes more. At this point you can serve immediately, or allow the soup to be on a low simmer for up to 1-2 hours. If it thickens too much, you can slowly add in more chicken stock until desired consistency is reached.

Notes

  • Like any soup, the longer this soup gets to simmer together, the better!
