Brilliant!! Wasn't expecting much from this as it seemed too simple...but it really is good! I am dieting so make a double batch of this and freeze in individual portions. Didn't have haricot beans last time so used a mix of cannelini, butterbeans and chickpeas...even better!!! A weekly favourite now that you wouldn't know was low fat!

Amazing recipe, have made this so many times. I added some chopped bacon too which was amazing. Very tasty and filling and really easy to make. I even dragged the hubby in to help prep!

Really tasty & filling! I omitted the oil but fried off some lardons, before adding the chicken. I added 3 large potatoes cubed, & replaced the celery with a leek. I used 4 large carrots in chunks & also added some soaked split broad beans. The result was a beautiful thick yummy bowl (or 2...) of loveliness for a freezing evening!! Served with crusty bread & a glass of red.

Against my expectations this turned out to be a beautiful dish! The reason I say against my expectations is that it is obviously a "healthy" dish and ironically I am not a big fan of beans! However, I followed the recipe practically to the letter and the taste of the food produced was absolutely delicious. All the ingredients work really well together and I will definitely be making this again as all the family loved it.

A really nice dish especially for midweek. I didn't have celery, so just added more onion, red and white and also 2 potatoes to bulk it out a bit. Also used knorr stock pots and a knorr herb infusion pot which made the sauce gorgeous. Dead easy, filling and relatively healthy!
