INGREDIENTS: 2 tsp plus 1T extra-virgin olive oil, divided ½ cup organic carrots, diced ½ cup red bell pepper, diced 8oz boneless, skinless organic chicken breast, cut into quarters 1 large clove garlic, minced 5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth 1 ½ tsp dried marjoram 6oz baby organic spinach, coarsely chopped 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans or great northern beans, rinsed ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese ⅓ cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves Fresh ground pepper to taste ¾ cup plain or herbed multigrain croutons for garnish (optional) PREPARATION: Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add carrots, bell peppers and chicken; cook, turning the chicken and stirring frequently, until the chicken begins to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Stir in broth and marjoram; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken pieces to a clean cutting board to cool. Add spinach and beans to the pot and bring to a gentle boil. Cook for 5 minutes to blend the flavors. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, Parmesan and basil in a food processor. Process until a coarse paste forms, adding a little water and scraping down the sides as necessary. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Stir the chicken and pesto into the pot. Season with pepper. Heat until hot. Garnish with croutons, if desired. NUTRITION INFO: Makes 5 servings.
