Paprika chicken and beans (Wk15 Day 1)

Serves 4 : Easy : Quick
2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 x 400gm tin chopped tomatoes
1 x 400gm cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup dry sherry (or white wine)
200gm frozen spinach

Fat free natural yoghurt, to serve
4 wholegrain rolls

Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Dry fry the onion and garlic until the onion is soft and starting to brown.
Add the paprika and cayenne and continue frying for about 2 minutes.

Add the chicken pieces and stir well.
Once the chicken is sealed, add the tomatoes, beans and sherry (or wine).
Simmer for 15 minutes.

Now add the spinach and allow everything to heat through fully.

Serve the stew with warm wholegrain rolls and a dollop of natural yoghurt.

This is a lovely warming meal. Filling, too. If you want to feed it to younger children, adjust the seasoning. The alcohol in the sherry/wine cooks off.
