Smoked Hungarian Style Sausage, Chicken and Butter Bean Stew

Main courseServes 4

Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Season the chicken with salt and pepper and brown in a preheated casserole in a little olive oil. This will take around 5 minutes on each side to develop some colour. Remove to a plate and add the roughly diced onion, carrot and celery to the same pan. Cook for ten minutes stirring as the vegetables soften. Add the garlic, chilli, smoked paprika, bay leaf and thyme and continue to cook briefly before adding the sausages. Cook over a medium heat allowing the sausages to flavour the vegetables. Add in the tomato purée and cook for a further 2 minutes, splash in the wine, allow to bubble briefly before adding the tomatoes, and a splash of water. Next return the chicken to the pan, stir to combine and place on a tight fitting lid. Transfer to the preheated oven for 30 minutes, remove, add the butter beans and stir in, before replacing the casserole, this time without the lid, for a further twenty minutes. At this stage reduce the sauce on the stove top if necessary, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in a handful of chopped flat leaf parsley and serve.
