Once again, rotisserie chickens can really relieve the dinner-rush pressure-especially in this Italian-inspired soup that cries out for a piece of crusty bread and a glass of red wine.

"This was a fantastic soup with wonderful flavors. It was very easy too. I didn't have rotisserie chicken so I used seasoned chicken breasts instead. This recipe is a keeper - I'll be sure to make it again. "

Bland And Needs More Beans

I just finished making this. For a soup with beans in the title, hard to find them in the finished product when made as advertised. I added a second can after my first bowl and it helped a lot. Needs something besides sage for seasoning. I added pepper and a little salt but even that was insufficient.

Fresh chicken that doesn't have to be cooked. The chicken is great.
Easy yet delicious

This was one of, or maybe THE, easiest soups that I've made and also very delicious. I added a sprinkle of baby carrots and some whole mushrooms.

Flexible enough to add your own touch
Chicken & White Bean Soup with added carrots and mushrooms

Quick and easy! Tastes great. I added some crushed red pepper, Nu Salt (salt substitute) and a teaspoon of grated parm per serving.

Very Good

This was delicious and easy. I used the rotissere chicken and then took the bones and skin to make my own broth which I used for the soup and it was delicious! The wheat rolls I served with it were a nice compliment to the soup.

Easy to throw together
Needs a Little Something

This soup is good, but it really needed some garlic, pepper, and sea salt. I would sauté 2 cloves of crushed garlic in the olive oil, add about a 1/2 tsp. or more of sea salt and pepper, and throw in 2 large, diced red potatoes if I made this again. It's a good, basic recipe, though, and would be easy to build on. I'd recommend it as a starting point.

low cal, good for a cold day, easy
