I’ve been watching Nigella Express on the cooking channel recently. I absolutely love her british accent! She makes everything sound so delicious. I’m always looking for new ways to prepate chicken so I decided to adapt one of her recipes over the weekend. The result was a quick and good tasting hearty chicken dish with lots of italian flavor.
2 cloves of garlic
1 T olive oil
4-5 strips of thick cut bacon
5 large scallions finely sliced
1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
2 large chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 c white wine
14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp sugar
14 oz can cannellini beans drained and rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat and add your garlic, rosemary and bacon. Fry for about 5 minutes then add your chicken and celery salt. Stir well and cook for about 5 minutes. Pour in wine and let it come to a boil. Continue to cook for 2 minutes and then add the bay leaves, sugar and tomatoes. Turn the heat to a simmer and cook covered for about 20 minutes. Add your beans and cook another 5 minutes until beans are heated through.
