Chicken Cassoulet

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by philip dreger

Quick take on an old classic with a "lite" touch. I also make this with a tablespoon of ketchup and a tablespoon of honey and a couple of bay leaves. Add with the other ingredients. I tried it with pork as well. Original recipe calls for a toasted bread crumb topping. I've also tried it with garlic croutons but the wife says it dries it out.

This recipe is delicious! I came across it when looking for a food to provide for my daughters French food week. I was specifically looking for something that included foods I already had on hand, and this fit the bill perfectly. I did substitute the kielbasa with hot italian sausage that I took out of the casing and made small meatballs with and I use boneless chicken breast specifically. It is so good with some crusty bread and a small salad. Dare I say the perfect meal! French peasant food is one of my favorites.
