CHICKEN CASSOULET

In this comforting recipe, the chicken is complimented with bacon, onions, tomatoes and white beans. It gets thick and rich and very tender. Instead of the traditional bread crumb crust, I topped it with some shredded cheese.

Prepare a wonderful, crunchy green salad and maybe a plate of whole-grain crackers for your family and you’ve got an easy, time-friendly meal.

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 slices turkey bacon, chopped
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, quartered
One 14-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Dash cayenne
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
One 15-ounce can Great Northern beans, drained

In a large skillet over medium heat cook turkey bacon in olive oil until it begins to brown. Add onion, and garlic and cook 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions turn light golden. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Stir in tomatoes, broth, thyme, basil, oregano, cayenne, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in beans and simmer, uncovered 10 more minutes, until mixture is slightly thickened and chicken is very tender. Makes 6 servings.
