Slow Cooker Chicken White Bean Spinach Soup
Oh, is it time for soup and bread yet? Today is just going to be dipping below 90 degrees but I can’t wait any longer. I love soup season so much. I love the everything-goes-into-one pot-and we slurp it out of bowls and serve it with freshly baked bread type of meal. It’s back to school season and to me that means soups! Now whether or not the weather cooperates, that’s a different story.
I have a great back to school, fall recipe for you today. If you’re like me I think you’re really going to like this Slow Cooker Chicken White Bean Spinach Soup. It’s healthy and totally flavorful. I started the soup by sautéeing some diced onion and a bit of garlic. My kitchen smelled amazing. I love starting a meal with the combination of onions and garlic. Then I added in some S&W® White Beans, tomatoes, spices and chicken breasts into the slow cooker and let it do its thing for several hours. Once the chicken was cooked I shredded it up and added a pop of color into the soup with some fresh spinach. We topped ours with some croutons and a little Parmesan cheese. I am so glad we have some leftovers because this is going to make a perfect lunch for tomorrow!

One thing that I really enjoyed about this soup was the quality of the beans. S&W Beans has the highest standards in the industry. Their beans not only taste great, they look great too. They look like the pictures on the cans! Amazing, I know. I love keeping several cans of the different varieties of S&W Beans in my pantry for those nights when I need the convenience of canned beans. Some of my favorite varieties are their 50% less sodium and organic varieties. If you’d like to try out S&W Beans you can get a coupon offer now through 12/31/2017.
