Russell Ito combined leftover roast chicken with a few basic ingredients and came up with an easily assembled chicken and white bean stew. If you don't have leftover cooked chicken, buy roast chicken at a supermarket or deli.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, mix bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons oil until well combined.

Step 2

Pour remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil into a 3-quart ovenproof pan over medium heat. When hot, add shallots, garlic, and carrot and stir occasionally until carrot is tender, about 7 minutes. Add beans, chicken, sausages, tomatoes, herbes de Provence, bay leaf, chicken broth, salt, and pepper; stir until well combined.

Step 3

Cover and bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until beans are hot, about 30 minutes; uncover and sprinkle top evenly with bread-crumb mixture. Bake until top is browned and edges are bubbling, about 20 minutes longer.
