A Tasty filling dish



1 tbsp olive oil
2 onions peeled and chopped
2 sticks celery, chopped
50g chorizo, chopped
2 tbsp tomato purée
8 garlic cloves peeled whole
Juice 1/2 lemon
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
Salt and pepper
4 chicken thighs, skin removed
1 400g tin cannellini or haricot beans
Handful of fresh parsley or spinach


  1. Preheat oven to 180c/160c fan/350f/gas 4.
  2. Heat oil in a large lidded casserole and cook onions and celery over a low heat for 2/3 minutes.
  3. When softened add chorizo and fry for a further minute.
  4. Add tomato purée, garlic cloves, stir and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  5. Add lemon juice and a splash of water and simmer for 3 minutes.
  6. Add carrots, tomatoes and season. Add chicken pieces and beans, stir to coat well, cover and put in the oven for 1-1 1/2 hours until the chicken is cooked and tender.

Besides adding spinach I’ve also made this recipe adding a can of chickpeas as well – just add the calories.
