Chicken and White Bean Soup {Quick & Easy}

I've been trying to incorporate more fiber into our diets. We love soup anytime of the year, but especially during winter.  I typically make Chicken Noodle soup, but decided to change it up a bit and make Chicken and White Bean Soup.

Legumes (beans) add great protein and fiber to a diet.  I also wanted a quick and easy recipe for lunch.  The night before I pre-soaked the beans, and in the morning the beans were cooked for about 2 hours.

You could also use canned, but cooking your own beans is a great way to save money.  2 p0unds of white beans gives me 4 - 3 1/2 cups of beans.  The remainder of the beans were placed in containers and tucked in the  freezer till next time.
