Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 x 320g pack skinless, boneless chicken thighs, halved
  • 1 x 30g pack flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 1 tbsp red wine or sherry vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 fennel bulbs, sliced (reserve the fronds to garnish)
  • 2 large garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 x 400g tins butter beans, drained
  • 300ml chicken stock - use gluten-free if required

Step by step

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a high-sided, large frying pan. Season the chicken thighs, then fry over a high heat for 5 minutes on each side; transfer to a plate.
  2. Meanwhile, to make a herb drizzle, chop the parsley and capers as finely as you can. Mix with the vinegar, mustard and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season to taste and set aside.
  3. Once the chicken is out, add the fennel to the frying pan. Cook, stirring in the crispy bits from the base of the pan, until softened and lightly caramelised, around 5 minutes, then add the garlic. Cook for a minute more and tip in the butter beans and chicken stock. Mix well, then nestle the chicken thighs on top of the butter beans and pour in any resting juices. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes or until everything is piping hot and the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Season the butter beans to taste, then spoon on the herb drizzle and take the pan to the table for people to help themselves. Scatter with the reserved fennel fronds if you like.
    Tip
    Make it veggie
    Omit the chicken and use veg stock; top the bean and fennel stew with some crumbled feta and the herb drizzle.
