  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 5 cups reduced-sodium chloride salt chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried marjoram (oregano)

  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup plain or herbed multigrain cubed and stir fried bread for garnish (optional)

Preparations: In a large pan heat 2 teaspoons of oil, add carrot (or bell pepper) and chicken. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes (or until it turns brown). Stir it more after adding garlic. On high heat add chicken broth and oregano, bring to boil then reduce heat and allow it to simmer for about 5-7 minutes until chicken is well cooked, while stirring it occasionally. Drain the chicken and let it cool. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. After adding boiled beans to broth, bring it to a gentle boil on low heat so to blend all the flavors. Boil spinach separately. It will take hardly 15 min. Now, mix the remaining boiled spinach, 1 tablespoon oil, cheese, and basil in a food processor and blend by adding little water as necessary until a coarse paste (pesto) is formed. Combine the chicken-bites and pesto and put it in broth. Garnish with croutous (optional) and season with pepper and serve hot.
