This flavoursome, low-fat casserole freezes really well, so why not make double and freeze half for next time

I love this receipe. I add chilli flakes to give it some heat, garlic and fresh corriander to garnish. Cant fault it. I love chicken and it seems to be popluar with my 1year old too.

Would it be ok, if I make chicken stock with the chicken thighs and then fry them a little bit?

Make this all the time, feeds whole family including fussy one and three year old. Sometimes vary veg and beans depending on what I have. I've used courgette and borlotti beans and not added parsley as I've nt had any. Freezes great... I am so glad to have this in my repertoire!

Agree with earlier coments really tasty. I sometimes add mixed beans in hot/spicy sauce and some sweet chilli sauce to jazz it up. New pototaes added go well too!

Was surprised at just how tasty this was, with so few ingredients and being so simple. Even OH, who is not a great lover of celery, liked it. Definitely in the 'tried, tested and ticked' category.

Oops again. I just realised I rated the wrong recipe. My above post is actually for the Spring Chicken in a Pot recipe. Doh!

This was gorgeous. Though I've just realised that I forgot to put haricot beans in. I also tried this recipe without the chicken and added fresh tortellini to the soup at the end. That was nice too. it's a bit similar to Italian brodo.
