This monthÂ’s recipe is: Chicken with Chorizo and Butter Beans

A favourite dish you can make at home

4 chicken pieces
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 mild chorizo sausages, sliced
1 onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 bunch parsley, chopped
½ Kilo chopped tomatoes
2 cups butter beans, either soaked and well cooked or canned
1 sprig thyme
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper


Sprinkle the chicken with the paprika, then heat the oil in a heavy casserole and brown the meat all over. Lift out the chicken and add the chorizo to the pan. When the oil starts to come out of the chorizo, add the onion and cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and a tablespoon of parsley. Cover and cook gently for another 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and beans and give it a stir. Add a little water if the mixture is a bit thick. Return the chicken to the pot, along with the thyme and bay leaf. Turn up the heat and bring up to a simmer. Lower the heat to its lowest setting, cover the pot and let it bubble away gently for 30 minutes or so. Remove the lid and simmer for another 15 minutes, until the sauce is thick and rich. Stir in a generous pinch of parsley and serve with warm crusty bread and a salad.
