PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 30 minutes
YIELD: 4 servings
2 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
3 Tbs chopped garlic
1 lb lean ground chicken
3 cups low-sodium, fat-free chicken broth
2 Tbs lime juice

1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp chili powder, or to taste
1 (15-oz) can cannellini beans, rinsed
1 (15-oz) can great northern beans, rinsed
2 cups fresh baby spinach
1. In a large, deep-sided skillet, heat oil over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add onion, garlic, and chicken. Cook for 10 minutes, or until chicken is white. Stir to break up any chunks.
