Chicken and White Bean Soup

This is such a simple recipe and very good. I received an offer from Eating Well magazine and decided to check out their website( to see if I would like their magazine. The website has tons of recipes and they all look easy and good. Needless to say, I subscribed to the magazine and look forward to receiving it, along with all the others. I made a few changes to the recipe, I used 1 leek not 2 , I added 2 cloves of garlic with the chopped sage, I used a 32 ounce box of broth and one cup of water and I added a little salt and some black pepper. I will post their recipe so that the nutritional values are the same.
