    1 vegetable cooking spray
    2 cup frozen, chopped onions
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 Tbsp flour
    0.45 kg boneless, skinless chicken tenders, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 can (15 oz) light red kidney beans, or 1½ cups cooked dry-packaged light red kidney beans, double rinsed, drained
    1 can (14½ oz) diced no salt added tomatoes, undrained
    1 1/4 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
    2 Tbsp no salt added tomato paste
    1 can (4 oz) mushrooms, drained
    2 stripes orange rind (3 x 1-inch)
    3/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
    1/2 tsp dried tarragon leaves
    1 dash of salt (optional) *

    Spray large saucepan with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Sauté onion and garlic 5 minutes; stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.

    Add beans, tomatoes, broth, tomato paste, mushrooms, orange rind, thyme, and tarragon; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until onions are tender and chicken is cooked, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

    Serve over noodles. Makes 6 entrée servings or 12 1-cup servings.


    * If more flavor is desired, can add kalamata olives, or salt and pepper to taste.
