When I saw the recipe for Tuscan Chicken Stew on South Your Mouth, I knew I had to try it. It just looked so good. Of course, I didn't quite follow the original recipe, but I did use basically the same ingredients, and I kept all the seasonings the same. I think it turned out great.
This soup is sure to become a favorite around here. I will definitely be making it again. It's super flavorful and easy to make.
I made this soup one day and then reheated it the next. I think all soups get better when you reheat them, and some absolutely have to be made a day before you want to eat it. I think this one would be good either way. I made fresh cornbread to go with the soup, which was really good. It would also be good with some nice crusty bread.
I used the1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, and the soup had a nice kick to it. My husband, who does not like his food very spicy at all, didn't complain and really liked the soup, but if you don't like a lot of spice you'll probably want to cut the measurement down to 1/4 tsp. - at least the first time.
