Braised Chicken & Beans (Healthy and Low Fat)

Braised Chicken & Beans (Healthy and Low Fat) created by Sarah_Jayne

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.

  • Heat the oil in a wide pan with a lid.
  • Add the chicken and quickly cook to brown it all over.
  • Tip in the onion, garlic and thyme and fry for a further 2 minutes.
  • Pour in the wine, water and the salt and pepper.
  • Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes, cover halfway through the cooking time, until the chicken is tender.
  • Stir the beans into the pan and briefly warm through.
  • Roughly chop the parsley, then scatter over to serve.

    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.
