Hurst's HamBeens® Chicken 15 Bean Soup®


  • 1 lb. of boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 lb. of smoked sausage, sliced
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine
  • Traditional Cooking Method:
  • Soaking: Place beans in a large pot, cover with 2 quarts of water. Allow Beans to soak overnight, or at least 8 hours.
  • After soaking, drain water, add 2 quarts of water. Bring beans to boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 2 ½ hours. Melt butter in a skillet, and sauté onion, celery, carrots, garlic and chicken over medium heat approximately 10 minutes. Add chicken mixture, sliced sausage, and flavor packet to the beans. Simmer another 30 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.

Yield: approximately 3 quarts. Serves 14-16

Quickcook Method:

  • Place rinsed beans in a pot with 3 quarts of water. Bring to a rapid boil. Reduce heat, cover and continue boiling 60-70 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. After 60 minutes, add ingredients. Simmer for 30-45 minutes. Add contents of flavor packet 1 to 2 minutes before cooking is completed. Salt and pepper to taste.
Note: Dry beans are a raw agricultural product. Although we carefully clean these beans, stones and debris may be present. Sort and rinse beans prior to cooking. Depending on water hardness, cooking time may need to be increased.

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. I suggests you try the BBQ. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home...all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
