1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 Tbsp. Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 large onion)

1 cup sliced celery (about 2 stalks)
2 cups sliced zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini)
1 cup grape tomatoes
2 (15-oz) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp. Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
1 tsp. fine sea salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

  2. Place the olive oil, onion, garlic, and chicken pieces in a 6- or 8-quart soup pot over medium-high heat.
  3. Sauté until the onions become translucent. Add the carrots, celery, zucchini, and tomatoes, and cook for 5 minutes.
