Chicken & Rice Soup Recipe

1 lb raw, boneless, chicken breast cut into 1/2 inch dice
2 t creole seasoning
2 T olive oil
1 c diced onion (small dice)
1 c diced carrot (small dice)
1 c diced celery (small dice)
1 T minced fresh garlic
1/2 t dried basil
1/2 t salt
dash crushed red pepper flakes (more if you like it spicy!)
1 qt low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 uncooked long grain white rice
2 handfuls fresh baby spinach
Season chicken with creole seasoning and set aside. Heat olive oil over med-high heat in a soup pot. Add onion, carrot, celery and cook, stirring occasionally until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, basil, salt, pepper and cook for 1 minute. Add chicken and cook for 3 minutes. Add the broth and rice, cover pot, and bring to boil over high heat. Remove cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender, about 12 minutes. Stir in spinach and serve. Makes 3 to 4 servings.
This soup tastes like it took all day to make! Hope you guys will give it a try :)
