By Carrie's Experimental Kitchen

It's so simple to prepare, as are most one-pot meals, and such a time saver on those busy nights when you're running in three different directions. You can even make it ahead of time (the night before) or prepare it in the slow cooker for a quick, heat-and-eat meal the family will love!

Serving Size: 4 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Total Time: 50 mins

Ingredients:
  • 3 lb boneles chicken breasts, cut into 1"
  • 1 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrot, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, rinsed and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and drained
  • 2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard (I used Grey Poupon)
  • 15 oz cannellini bean, rinsed
Directions:
  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat olive oil and add chicken. Saute until cooked through; then remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Next, add the onion, carrots, celery and garlic to the pot and saute until they have started to soften.
  3. Add in the flour so that it forms a roux; then deglaze the pot with the white wine.
  4. Add in the chicken broth, mustard, spinach and cooked chicken and mix well.
  5. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally; then stir in the beans and let simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Serve over egg noodles or rice.


*Time Saver Tip: Still short on time? Purchase a pre-roasted chicken from your local grocery store or use frozen carrots since these take the longest to soften. You will reduce the cooking time by half!
