  2. Add the peppers, tomatoes, beans and hot stock. Put the chicken back on top, half-cover with a pan lid and cook for 50 mins, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

  3. Stir through the coriander and serve with soured cream and crusty bread.

Started this morning by slow cooking the chicken with a cup of veg stock, so by 4 hrs it was falling off the bone with 600ml dish full of gorgeous chicken stock. Found this recipe and wow, its transformed into a wonderful flavoursome nutritional dinner. Many thanks to Good Food.

Cooked this tonight and it was lovely. Might spice it a bit more next time (did full quantity for 2 of us so there is extra in freezer ;-0).

Really tasty. Didn't have kidney beans, just used mixed beans with the butter beans, and some boneless, skinless chicken thighs, and it was delicious. Will definitely use less liquid next time though.

Really easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! I used boneless chicken thigh meat and cooked it in the oven in a casserole dish (lid on) for about an hour or so after adding all the ingredients in step 2. This is definitely one of our 'keep' recipes!

This was great. I used only thighs and added smoked paprika according to the other suggestions. I also didn't bother to defrost the peppers, just bunged them straight in and was pleasantly suprised at how economical they were (99p for a 500g bag). I did another similar chicken/butterbean recipe on this site recently (I think it is dated Dec 2012) and this is much better, it has much more depth of flavour. Served with cous cous.

Cooked this for tea tonight and we were very impressed. Not big chilli lovers so just added hot paprika which was just right for us. We are trying to eat healthily so instead of sour cream I added a little low fat greek yoghurt at the table. Served with rice, it was really delicious. Will definately make this again.

A very satisfying and warming dish for a cold winters day. I added 100g of sliced chorizo when frying the chicken plus some dried chilli flakes and a good teaspoon of smoked paprika when frying the onions. A lovely easy dish to make that gets a lot of compliments. This will become a firm family favourite and a useful one when entertaining.
