Chicken Pesto Soup


  • One onion chopped
  • Two cloves of garlic chopped
  • One 32oz box of chicken stock
  • The meat off one rotisserie chicken cubed
  • Two handfuls of spinach I give mine a rough chop
  • One can of cannelloni beans
  • One can of great northern beans
  • Pesto


  1. Cook the onion until softened.
  2. Sauté the garlic a minute or two.
  3. Add the stock, the chicken, beans and spinach.
  4. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes.
  5. Serve with crusty garlic bread, a dollop of pesto and a sprinkle of grated cheese.
  6. I find that if you mix in the pesto into the soup it turns green. So I just put the pesto on top of each bowl I serve.
