This frugal recipe looks like it is right up my alley. It utilizes leftover cooked chicken, spinach which I happen to have growing in my “garden” (we have things in pots on the patio) and canned beans. But if you don’t have spinach growing in your garden a bag of baby spinach is pretty cheap. Easy peasy. Nothing expensive here!


  • 1 1/2 -2 cups seasoned, cooked and diced chicken breast meat
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 banana pepper, diced
  • a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (heaping) TBSP all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach, stems removed, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
