One of my New Year’s Resolutions
is to research and cook one new recipe each week.
This recipe is courtesy of Paws2Claws from Northern Portugal, but originally came from her friend in Texas…
P2C I have to report it was absolutely delicious and Mr Piglet definitely gave it the thumbs up! Thank you!
2 Chicken breasts
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 onion (sliced)
2 red or green peppers, seeded and sliced (I used one of each)
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
Fresh tomatoes or a tin of diced tomatoes
2-3 cups of dry white wine
Chopped fresh oregano or basil
Cannellini beans or Chick peas (I used tinned)
3 Tablespoon fresh breadcrumbs
Salt and ground black pepper
Fry the chicken in olive oil in a non-stick pan, until golden brown. Remove from heat, and set it aside on a plate.
Add the onion and sliced peppers and saute them until soft.
Add the crushed garlic.
Return the chicken to the pan with the onion, peppers, tomatoes and tomato paste, most of the oregano/basil), and stir till the mix boils.
Cover the pan and reduce the heat, simmering the chicken for about 30 minutes (or until the chicken is well cooked)
Then add the beans and simmer again for another 5 minutes.
Transfer to an over proof baking dish sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and grill until the top is golden brown.
I did forget to add the breadcrumbs, but it was still delicious!
I served with creamed mashed potatoes but I think it would go equally well with rice or even a hunk of bread. What would you serve it with?
