Chicken and bean stew. 

I was given the turn of cooking dinner for the family last night. I was craving a tomato sauce based meal, and I more than often choose chicken as my protein source. That’s why I decided to try and cook something new containing both those ingredients! 

This dish was delicious and very nutritious! I will warn you it did have quite a kick to it, so depending if you like it spicy or not add more or less chilli powder. 

What you need (for 4 people):

300g chicken breast 

1 can of kidney beans 

1 can of butter beans 

1 can of chopped tomatoes 

1tbspn sunflower oil

1 clove of garlic 

200ml chicken stock

1 onion

1 red pepper

1tbspn chilli powder

1tbspn mixed herbs 

300g brown rice 

Boil the rice and meanwhile chop the chicken and brown in a pan with the cooking oil. Add the chopped onion pepper and crushed garlic when the chicken is browned. Add the chopped tomatoes and chicken stock. Add the beans and then season with as much chilli powder and herbs as you want. 

Serve up and enjoy!
