Chicken and bean soup-Connie's

Connie Ottman


It was one of those days when I didn't have a clue about dinner. And, It was cold outside. So the creativity button clicked in and this is what came out.
Warm, filling and delicious, it hit the spot. "This is a winner" came from the one lonely diner. I think you can try different beans and see what develops. We like using two different kinda.
This is good with a crusty bread. Hope you enjoy:)

    (I stewed my chicken in water, onions with skins on, carrots and salt and pepper.)
  • 2Chop onions, carrots and celery.
  • 3Drain and rinse well beans.
    (Next time, I'll try two different beans to see how that goes)
  • 4Place chicken, onions, celery, carrots and beans in a large pot.
