Chicken with chorizo and butter beans

This meal is guaranteed to ward off the winter chills.

Serves 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 35 minutes

• 1 chorizo sausage, thinly sliced

• 4 chicken breast fillets

• ½ red onion, cut into thin wedges

• ½ head cauliflower, broken into florets

• 2 tins butter beans, rinsed

• about 125 ml stock

• fresh herbs

• about 15 ml olive oil

1 Fry the sausage in the oil until crispy; spoon out and reserve the aromatic oil. Make three incisions in each chicken breast (this helps the chicken to cook evenly) and fry the chicken, cut side first, until golden brown. Stir in the onion and cauliflower and cook for a few more minutes.

2 Now return the chorizo to the pan along with the beans and stock, and stir through. Cover with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Season with salt and pepper and a sprinkling of fresh herbs such as flat-leaf parsley. Mash the beans lightly and tuck in!
