Chicken Pesto Soup

Chicken Pesto Soup

A feel good soup that's also delicious! Loaded with vegetables, white beans and shredded chicken, all in a pesto flavoured chicken broth.

This is feel-good soup with an extra dose of flavour! Poaching the chicken in the broth, means you can start with a frozen chicken breast. Fresh cherry tomatoes, celery and broccolini add a nice complement of vegetables. Finally, stirring pesto into the soup brings such great flavour to the broth.

  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 close garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram, or dried basil leaves
  • 4 cups chicken broth, low sodium recommended
  • 4-6 oz. boneless chicken breast, about one average
  • 1 cup cup celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups broccolini, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 14-15 oz. can white kidney beans (cannellini), rinsed
  • 2 Tablespoons prepared basil pesto
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Grated Parmesan, for serving
