Chicken and bean soup-Connie's
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:)

How to Make Chicken and bean soup-Connie's
- Chop cooked chicken into mouth sized pieces.
(I stewed my chicken in water, onions with skins on, carrots and salt and pepper.)
- Chop onions, carrots and celery.
- Drain and rinse well beans.
(Next time, I'll try two different beans to see how that goes)
- Place chicken, onions, celery, carrots and beans in a large pot.
- Cover ingredients with chicken stock.
Liquid should go 3-4 inches over ingredients. Add more or less as desired. After all, it's soup.
