    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add the celery, carrot, and onion. Saute the vegetables until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3

    7. 7
      Transfer the chicken breasts to a cutting board and cool for 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Discard the bay leaf.
    9. 9
      Add the kidney beans to the pot and simmer until the liquid has reduced into a stew consistency, about 10 minutes.

      This is really tasty and very of all the kids ate it without complaining!!! I love the fact that it is simple and quick to fix. I had to alter the recipe slightly because I used a couple of boneless skinless chicken breasts that were already cooked and I did add a pinch of garlic just because I add it to just about everything. I chopped the onion, celery and carrots fresh, but this meal could be a total quick fix (30 minutes total) which is great for those who are pressed for time. You can purchase chopped onion, celery and carrots in a bag in the produce isle and pick up a rotisserie chicken. Follow steps 1-4, next add some of the rotisserie chicken that has been pulled apart, and the beans; simmer until heated through, then serve. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2008

      This was really great, and my family loved it! Very simple to make and the flavors just pop! I did use boneless chicken breasts rather than bone-in. Moist, and easy to shred. Will certainly make again!
