Chicken soup and weight loss

Chicken and White Bean Soup
4 cups roasted chicken meat, skinless, shredded
1 can cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 leeks, cut into 1/4-inch rounds (white and light green parts only)
1 Tbsp. fresh sage, chopped (or 1/4 tsp. dried)
3 cups chicken broth, low-sodium
2 cups water

Heat oil in a large saucepan 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 to high heat, cover, and bring to a boil. Add beans and chicken and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 8 servings. Enjoy it with your weight loss plan. Chicken Soup is great for P90x.
