This is a really savory and light chicken soup.  The spinach and basil give it a  little different flavor Chicken & Vegetable Soupfrom your standard chicken soup.   It was always well received by our guests.

This is a great soup to use up leftover poultry like turkey.   If you don't want to start from scratch and boil a chicken and pick the meat, grab a roased chicken from the grocery store.   You can add things to this soup like a shaped pasta or orzo if you want to make it a bit heartier.
