  2. Stir in the beans, potato and stock. Bring to the boil, then cover and gently simmer for 20 mins until the potato is soft and the chicken cooked through. Stir through the parsley and serve. You can cool and freeze the stew for up to 2 months. To serve, defrost and heat through thoroughly.

A - maze- ing so full of flavour and easy to make, I added a pinch if cayenne pepper for extra spice and I had some rosemary focaccia in the freezer and we mopped up the juices with that. It is on my to make again list. Hubby loved it. An al fresco meal as well as a warming winter dish.

This is now in our family favourites! Made changes as others did. used chicken breast instead of thighs, used a tin of chopped tomatoes, added 2 gloves garlic and 1/2 tsp smoked paprika and 1/2 tsp hot paprika and served with dumplings. Utterly delicious!

Made this for my family (two children aged 14 and 7). Used 7 chicken thighs and in order to make the sauce thicken, I added more cannellini beans, and a bit more potato. Also, since I had no tomato, used tomato puree. Served with some curly kale and a homemade crusty loaf. Went down very well and leftovers sufficient to freeze for a quick meal for me and my husband.

Was full of flavour and the chunky chorizo was delicious. Only added a little paprika. About to make another batch to freeze.

Excellent recipe. Used chicken breasts instead of thighs and added two fat chopped garlic cloves, two tspn smoked paprika and a pinch of dried chillies. My husband said he would like this one "every two weeks please!"

Delicious, really easy and quick. Had to use butter beans as no cannellini in the supermarket. Added some garlic, and extra potato. Looking forward to the leftovers for lunch!
