Chicken with Chorizo and Butter Beans

I just love chorizo. The Spanish sausage has so much flavour and it really makes this chicken dish special. The kind to use in this dish is the raw pork sausage, not the kind that is more like a deli meat.

ingredients

directions

  • Sprinkle the chicken with the smoked paprika, then heat the oil in a heavy casserole and brown the meat all over.
  • Lift out the chicken and add the chorizo to the pan.
  • When the oil starts to come out of the chorizo, add the onion and cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and a tablespoon of parsley.
  • Cover and cook gently for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and beans and give it a stir.
  • Add a little water if the mixture is a bit thick.
  • Return the chicken to the pot, along with the thyme and bayleaf.
  • Turn up the heat and bring up to a simmer.
  • Lower the heat to its lowest setting, cover the pot and let it bubble away gently for 30 minutes or so.
  • Remove the lid and simmer for another 15 minutes, until the sauce is thick and rich.
  • Stir in a generous pinch of parsley and serve with warm crusty bread and a salad.

    Really liked this recipe. Used boneless chicken thighs cut into large, bite-sized pieces. Chopped fresh tomatoes and added some frozen corn for a complete meal. Cooked quickly and was very flavorful. Makes a BIG batch, so I cut amounts of everything down for our household.

    Delicious, very rich flavors. I took ellle's advice and added a few spoons of tomato paste. The depth in flavors was just wonderful. I used almost 2 whole onions because I was trying to use them up, but I browned them in the beginning with chorizo before cooking the chicken. I served this with Mean's Basque Potatoes after I read the suggestion in Eegee's review. My husband and my father in law couldn't put this down and said 5 stars, no question about it! Will make again and again, thanks for posting!

    This was ok, I was not too crazy about it. I definitely ate it, but I don't think I will ever make it again. The list of ingredients looked like I will definitely like it, but somehow I was expecting bigger flavors which I didn't find.

    This was really good - I made a few changes to accomodate what I had on hand. I eliminated the olive oil and just sprayed my pan with cooking spray. I substituted the butter beans with a can of northern beans and used a 14 oz can of chopped tomatoes (using the juice from both cans). I did not have fresh thyme so I just threw in some dried and I didn't bother with the second amount of parsley. Served over whole wheat penne with a side of green peas and dinner rolls. Very good - just the right amount of spice/heat. Thanks for sharing.
