• 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

• 2 cans (each 14 to 19 oz.) cannellini or white kidney beans, drained and rinsed (see Note)

• 3 c. shredded cooked chicken (see Note)

• 1/4 c. pesto (store-bought or your own), divided

• 2 tsp. white wine vinegar

• Extra-virgin olive oil


In large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 6 minutes. Add garlic, celery, carrot, oregano and cayenne; sauté for 2 minutes.

Stir in stock, salt and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are softened, about 20 minutes. Add beans, chicken, 2 tablespoons pesto and vinegar; heat until steaming, about 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and black pepper, if necessary.

Ladle into heated bowls and garnish each with a small dollop of remaining pesto and a drizzle of olive oil.
