Chicken, Pasta, and Chickpea Stew

Recipe by CIndytc

Great recipe I tried out of the Cooking Light magazine I got this month....They used their homemade marinara sauce (which I will post), but you can use a jar one too. Great stew...

We loved this satisfying soup/stew....but I did make some changes (of course!!) I had poached some chicken in my crockpot and froze it...used the Basic Marinara Sauce....added a cob of corn that I had in my fridge...and used Orecchiette pasta (which was what I had on hand). I cooked the veggies in the broth and marinara sauce, then turned the stove off. I added the thawed chicken, chick pea and pasta at this stage. The chicken and pasta does not get over cooked this way! This soup turned out nice and thick...just the way we like
