CassouletCassoulet


Recipe Details:
To all comfort food lovers out there, this recipe should speak to your soul. This cassoulet is a lighter, diabetes-friendly version of a traditional French casserole. Although the traditional duck and pork are replaced, the dish comes out very filling and delicious.


Ingredients:
  • Turkey kielbasa (sliced) – 7 Oz
  • Chicken thighs (skinless & boneless) – 1.5 lb.
  • Chicken broth (low-sodium) – 1.5 cup
  • Canned cannellini beans (rinsed & drained) – 1 can (15 Oz.)
  • Tomato paste – 2 tbsp.
  • Medium carrots (sliced) – 2
  • Garlic (minced) – 4 cloves
  • Large onion (chopped) – 1
  • Fresh thyme – 3 sprigs
  • Salt and ground black pepper – to taste
    Recipe Directions:
    Step 1
    Cut the chicken thighs into 8 large pieces and season each piece with salt and pepper.
    Step 2
    Grease a large frying pan with a cooking spray and warm it over high heat.
    Step 3
    Fry the chicken pieces on all sides until golden brown. That may take approximately 5-7 minutes, then remove it from the frying pan and set aside.
    Step 4
    Lower the heat to medium. Put kielbasa in the frying pan and fry for 5 minutes, then remove it from the frying pan and set aside.
    Step 5
    Add carrots, onion, and garlic to the frying pan and fry for about 4 minutes. Then put in tomato paste, chicken broth, and thyme. If any pieces of the ingredients got stuck to the bottom of the frying pan, scrape them and bring to a boil.
    Step 6
    Lower heat to a simmer. Add the chicken and kielbasa back to the frying pan, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes.
    Step 7
    Remove the lid from the frying pan and simmer uncovered for 5 more minutes.
    Step 8
    Remove the chicken from the frying pan and set aside.
    Step 9
    Put the beans in the frying pan, turn heat to high, and simmer until liquid is slightly reduced (about 5-7 minutes), then remove the thyme stems from the frying pan.
    Step 10
    Put the chicken thighs on the bottom of a bowl, and pour half a cup of the stew over it. Serve and enjoy!
