  • Active Time 25m
  • Total Time 25m

Makes 6 servings, 1 1/2 cups each

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.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed
  • 1 roasted chicken (2 pounds), skin discarded, meat removed from bones and shredded (4 cups)

directions

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add leeks and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in sage and continue cooking until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Stir in broth and water, increase heat to high, cover and bring to a boil. Add beans and chicken and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Serve hot.
