Smoky Chicken and Bean Stew

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Use smoked paprika and smoked bacon medallions as they will give the stew a good smoky flavour.

Oh my - So delicious
I did the slow cooker version. I added spinach as I had no Kale and also added some sliced green beans for a bit of extra veg. I had a small portion of boiled rice to go with it.
Try Drumstick Fillets
This is a lovely recipe and I have recently discovered drumstick fillets, over thighs. They are cheaper than thighs and taste very similar and don’t dry out in the slow cooker.
Next time (there will definitely be a next time) I'll add spinach instead of kale, and throw some mushrooms in too.
