Chicken, Artichoke & Canellini Bean Spezzatino Recipe

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces bacon, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, halved
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 28 ounces chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 can tomato paste (small can)
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts with rib meat
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
Directions
In a heavy 5 or 6 quart saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring frequently, until brown and crispy, about 6 to 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon and drain on paper towels. Set aside. Add the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken stock, basil, tomato paste, thyme, and bay leaf. Add the chicken and press down to submerge. Bring the liquid to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, turning the chicken over and stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Add the artichokes and the cannellini beans and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the liquid has reduced slightly, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove the chicken and let cool for 5 minutes. Discard the bones and cut the meat into bite-size pieces. Return the meat to the saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes until warmed through. Remove the bay leaf and discard. Season the spezzatino with salt and pepper, to taste.

Ladle the spezzatino into bowls and garnish with the cooked bacon.
