Paprika Chicken With Cannellini Beans, Quick & Easy

I found this recipe in a local paper, made this for dinner last night, served over white rice and was most impressed. Very quick & easy to make and so tasty!!! The recipe says to use full fillets, which I did, but I think that diced chicken would be better and will use that next time.

This is a fantastic and quick weeknight dinner with an interesting taste - we enjoyed the flavors as the paprika adds something unusual. I served it over rice - it was a great one dish meal! I added an extra clove of garlic and next time will probably add a few more for a little extra kick. I will also omit the chicken stock as I do not think it is necessary. Also, canned tomatoes worked fine for me. Thanks again!!

Really liked this dish, very Spanish flavors! I used boneless thighs I did add extra garlic as suggested by other reviewers and it made a difference. I didn't have the wine but I think it would be a nice flavor and will add it next time, if I have it. I also added fresh grated Parmesan as Kittencalskitchen suggested, delicious!! Served it over fresh egg noodles. Will definitely make this again, my 5 yr olds loved it!!

This was certainly fast and flavoursome. I used diced skinless thighs (a personal preferance) and simmered the sauce to thicken it up. We ate this over mashed potatoes for a nice comforting dinner.
