Add zucchini, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and beans to pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Be very careful not to overcook the vegetables. You want the onion to be crisp tender. Meanwhile, remove skin and bones from chicken; shred meat. (This can be made with boneless, skinless chicken breast, in which case adjust cooking time to absolute minimum so as not to overcook the chicken and make it stringy) When vegetables are to the desired tenderness add meat to soup and heat through.
