Just like a chicken, beans are very useful andit is tasty. It consists of almost all minerals and vitamins. In addition, beans are the most valuable source of vegetable protein. Using a simple recipe "Chicken with Beans" you will prepare a tasty and healthy dish.
You should purchase the following products: chicken 1 pc (up to 1.5 kg weight), white beans 300 g. (you can take and canned, 500 grams, this will noticeably shorten cooking time), tomato 3 pcs. (medium size), Bulgarian yellow pepper 1 pc., onion 1 pc., 1-3 cloves garlic, thyme 2-3 sprigs, olive oil, salt and spices to taste.
The mood is excellent! We start to prepare a dish "Chicken with beans". First chicken cut into pieces, about 150 grams. Onions cut into cubes, and garlic just crumbs finely. It is necessary to cut it, and not to pass through the garlick. So the chicken with beans will be more fragrant. I recommend taking a large and deep frying pan. On the heated frying pan pour olive oil and fry the thyme twigs for 1-2 minutes. If you have not found a fresh thyme, you can buy a seasoning based on it, in the store, it certainly will be (just add it already in the fried onions and garlic). The smell of this delicious spice already stirs up the appetite. Put the chicken in a frying pan, fry it until golden brown. Add the onions and garlic, and fry for a while for 3-4 minutes. Wash and dry the tomatoes, cut into slices and add them to the chicken. We chop the Bulgarian peppers in strips and also send them to a skillet. Add some water (so that the chicken was half in the water). If you have chicken broth in cubes - great! If not, then it's time to salt and add your favorite spices. Cover the frying pan with a lid and stew for 15 minutes.
Let's take the beans. Which one did you choose? Not canned? Then do not forget to sort it out and remove all rubbish. Wash the beans several times. To make a dish faster, I advise you to soak the beans in cold water for at least 5 hours, and preferably 8. If you do not soak the beans before cooking, it will cook very long and lose its shape, that is, it will boil. Before you put the beans cook, drain the water in which it was soaked and pour in fresh. It is prepared without salt, on low heat, with a closed lid and in constantly boiling water. Cook the beans until it becomes soft. It will take about 1-2 hours (depends on the size of the beans). I advise you to put it in the first place, even before you start to cook chicken. Another little trick. Beans cook more quickly if you fill it with cold boiled water.
The chicken is ready. Beans, too. Combine the ingredients and stew for five more minutes under the closed lid. Chicken with beans is ready!
If you chose canned beans - hereabsolutely everything is simple. When the chicken is almost ready, add canned beans and keep it on low heat for five minutes. The dish is ready, it would be faster to try!
Decorate a plate of every guest or family memberleaves of fresh salad and leaves of arugula. Lay the chicken with beans on a pillow of leaves and sprinkle with chopped herbs. You can decorate the dish with circles of Bulgarian pepper and slices of lime or lemon. Serve chicken with beans must be hot.
"Chicken with beans" is a simple recipe, but it takes time to prepare. But whoever you are not treated to this dish, no one will remain indifferent!
