Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 British free-range skin-on bone-in chicken thigh fillets
  • 4 free-range British pork sausages, cut into 2cm chunks
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2½ tbsp tomato purée
  • 500ml fresh chicken stock
  • 2 x 400g tins cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4-5 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 2 bay leaves

To serve

  • Chopped fresh parsley, crusty white baguette and steamed green beans

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium flameproof casserole over a medium-high heat, then fry the chicken and sausages for 6-7 minutes until golden all over. Transfer to a plate. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes until starting to soften. Add the tomato purée and cook for 1 minute more.
  2. Turn the heat down to medium and add all the remaining ingredients. Return the chicken and sausages to the pan, season well and cook for 10-15 minutes until the stock has reduced slightly and the chicken is cooked through. Remove the thyme and bay leaves, then sprinkle with parsley and serve with a crusty white baguette and steamed green beans.
