Great recipe. We love it have done it quite a few times now.
Tasty quick & healthy. It is one of our regular weekly meals.

SSBN (or other slow cooks out there) - did you do half the amount of stock and add the beans up front when using your slow cooker? Also, how long did you put it on for? Thanks - bit of a slow cooker novice!

Yummy, quick and healthy. I will make it again. Perfect for a Sunday evening. Wouldn't change a thing. Normally I add chilli to almost everything, but this was great without it.

Very, Very Tasty. I only had dried parsley on hand but it was fine.

I used a slow-cooker after I had browned the chicken, fried off the veggies and de-glazed the pan with the chicken stock.

If making this strictly for myself, I'd add 1/2 Tsp red pepper flakes.
