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.

    very good, I add in some crushed chili flakes and increased the garlic amount, at the end of cooking I mixed in some Parmesan cheese, will make again, this was wonderful, thanks Mandy!

    We'd like to give this another half star for taste and ease. We're definitely making this again. Since there were only 2 of us, we used two skinned chicken breasts and smoked paprika but we made the whole amount of sauce. We sliced the chicken breasts after frying and next time, will cube them. We used Great Northern Beans and lime juice rather than lemon. And we were able to use our fresh tomatoes from the garden so we had to cook it a little longer to reduce. Finally, we stirred in 1 cup cooked short grain brown rice.

    Delicious and super easy to make. Prep and cook times are accurate; thanks for that! My hubby and I had this with Classic Saffron Rice (#113983) and enjoyed both. Substitutions: I used andouille sausage instead of chorizo, and 1 cup chicken stock instead of the wine and 1/2 cup stock. I also used 4 tbsp fresh chopped parsley, adding half of it when I added the chicken back in, and half for garnish. I did not use the lemon juice, and liked it perfectly well without it. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT3.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
