White Bean Puree & Chicken

 

Our New Years resolution for 2012 was to be healthier – eat out less, exercise more and eat lower calorie meals.  With just about one month down we’ve held fast to our resolution and are feeling great.  To help stay on course we’ve been experimenting with lots of different healthy meals – trying to find well balanced dishes that are both filling and low in calories. One of the recipes I created is a white bean puree that I serve with the shredded meat from a rotisserie chicken where the skin/fat has been removed.  I make the meal on Sunday afternoons and then have lunch for the entire week!  With so few ingredients the meal is really flavorful and most importantly filling.  Enjoy!
