Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wide pan with a lid, add the chicken, then quickly cook to brown it all over.
  2. Tip in the onion, garlic and thyme, then fry for a further 2 mins. Pour in the wine, 150ml water and a little salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins, covering halfway through the cooking time, until the chicken is tender.
  3. Stir the beans into the pan and briefly warm through. Roughly chop the parsley, then scatter over to serve.

I thought this dish was delicious. However I too ended up with too much liquid and so simmered uncovered for a little longer to evaporate it off.

Very simple and healthy and now a staple mid-week menu meal for me - I did end up with too much liquid in the recipe though?

was a little dubious on this dish myself but absolutely loved it, will definitely be making it again. Didn't find it too watery though may have been because i didn't use any wine and simmered it for longer than it said by mistake.

I tried this recipe for Mothers Day. I doubled up on the ingredients, but only used 450 mls of white wine, as my sister and her family were also joining us. The resulting dish tasted bland and had far too much liquid.
