Diabetes Vegetable Chicken Soup


* 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
* 8 ounces chicken tenders , cut into bite-size chunks
* 1 each small zucchini , finely diced
* 1 large shallot , finely chopped
* 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 2 each plum tomatoes , chopped
* 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
* 1/4 cup dry white wine
* 2 tablespoons orzo or other tiny pasta, such as farfelline
* 1 1/2 cups packed baby spinach


1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
2. Add zucchini, shallot, Italian seasoning and salt and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are slightly softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, broth, wine and orzo (or other tiny pasta); increase heat to high and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the pasta is tender, about 8 minutes, or according to package directions. Stir in spinach, the cooked chicken and any accumulated juices from the chicken; cook, stirring, until the chicken is heated through, about 2 minutes.
