2. Spaghetti with Chicken, Kale and White Beans

Serves 4

Recipe by Rebekah Peppler

1 lb spaghetti
1 cup low-sodium chicken stock
4 cups kale, coarsely chopped
1 15-oz. can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 rotisserie chicken, meat picked and skin removed
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, until al dente. Drain through a colander.

In a large sauté pan with a lid, bring 1 cup chicken stock to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add kale, cover, and steam for about 2 minutes, until the kale is wilted and soft. Add shredded chicken and drained beans and continue to heat for about a minute, until chicken is warmed through. Stir in the cooked pasta, season with salt and pepper and serve.

4. For this recipe, you’ll need a large sauté pan with a lid and a large pot to cook the pasta.


A sauté pan is different than your average skillet because it has tall, straight sides. You can get one here. Any stock pot that’s at least 8 quarts will work, but a 12-quart pot is your best bet. Get a simple one here.
