The beauty of making this soup at home is that you can customize it to your tastes. If you prefer a thinner soup, swap in milk or more chicken stock. If you'd like a thicker soup, use less broth or cream. This soup is a great base for adding in your favorite vegetables. If you're not a fan of spinach, try using another leafy green like kale, swiss chard, or even collard greens. Try swapping in broccoli, cauliflower, peas, or even bell peppers.
