Chicken Florentine Soup

The following recipe, video and photography were provided by our partner, Chef Billy Parisi.

When the weather turns crisp and chilly, warm your body and soul with a bowl of Chicken Florentine Soup!

To allow for less time in the kitchen and more time around the table, use a hot and savory Heinen’s rotisserie chicken instead of roasting chicken yourself. Paired with fresh carrots, celery, baby spinach and potatoes in a creamy, cheesy broth, no one will ever know this recipe called for a shortcut!
