Description

A budget-busting pantry staple, fibre-packed cannellini beans get a kick from salty capers and fiery chilli.

Ingredients

  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red chilli
  • 1 x 400g can no-added-salt chopped tomatoes
  • 1 x 400g can no-added-salt cannellini beans, rinsed, drained
  • 2 teaspoons salted baby capers, rinsed, drained, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh continental parsley
  • 2 (about 250g each) chicken breast fillets, halved horizontally
  • Steamed green round beans, to serve

Instructions

  1. Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat. Spray with olive oil spray to grease. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the garlic and chilli, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic.
  2. Add the tomato. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cannellini beans and capers, and simmer for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly. Season with pepper. Stir in half the parsley.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Spray with olive oil spray. Add the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through.
  4. Divide the chicken among serving plates. Top with the cannellini bean mixture and remaining parsley. Serve with steamed green beans.
