Directions See How It's Made
- In a large enamel casserole dish with a tight-fitting lid, warm oil on medium heat and gently brown chicken pieces on all sides, skin side first. When they are a rich golden colour, remove and set aside.
- Add onion, carrots, and celery and fry in oil until just beginning to soften. Add garlic and stir for a further minute, then return chicken pieces to casserole.
- Pour in tomatoes and stock and bring to a boil. Pop whole chili and bay leaves into casserole and, using a spoon, push them under the surface of the liquid. Season with salt and pepper.
- Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in cannellini beans, replace lid and cook for a further 20 minutes.
- When cooking time is up, stir in chopped parsley and coriander, lemon zest and lemon juice. Serve immediately in warmed flat bowls.
