    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    Yet another discovery in my quest to collect healthy recipes. I found this one in the March 2008 copy of the BBC Good Food Magazine. It is nice to see a chicken and beans recipe that isn't tomato based and uses more than just a chicken breast. There is no reason a chicken thigh can't be super tasty and healthy. The recipe states that the dish can be frozen.

      This was good. I used chicken stock instead of water and I think with out the stock it may have been a little bland. Made for ZWT5.

      This was an ok recipe, but it just wasn't anything special for me. I did use chicken breasts simply because I prefer the taste of them to thighs. Maybe that's why it was't fantastic for me, I'm not sure.
