Chicken, Rosemary and White Bean Stew

"I love this stew, it reminds me of our favorite Bistro restaurants in London. Cooks in 30 minutes and needs only a very simple green salad and rustic crusty bread to make it a very special meal."

  1. I used a big turkey leg, meat off, but bones thrown in the pot to cook along with, and lardons, as no Canadian bacon here! No problem with the substitutions. I might cut down on the carrot next time, which adds a bit too much sweetness for us. Served with garlis toast made out of some really rustic sourdough. Very earthy lunch!
  2. Actually really good. The wine and the rosemary complimented each other nicely. I just might make it again...
  3. Here's one that goes into our list of "keepers." Manages to be both subtle and delicate and yet earthy at the same time. Served it with a simple salad, dressed with oil, vinegar and Romano, and some good bread to soak up the wonderful juices. Thanks for posting!
  4. Awesome, just added some Celery and a little extra Rosemary as Pebbles suggested, will be making this again.
  5. This stew is delicious. No adjustments needed and I had all the ingredients on hand. It's a keeper !!!


  1. Great! I did this with 1 lbs of turkey tenders instead of the chicken, and 6 oz of lean canadian bacon. It was a bit more soupy because of less meat, but wonderful! I did not use any oil. The fresh rosemary really makes a difference.
