Chicken Hilda


1 or 2 chicken breast

1 can white beans

1 clove garlic (optional)




White wine


Slice onions and dice your chouriço, begin to saute them on medium-low heat with a small amount of oil in a saucier using a wooden spoon.

While onions and chouriço are cooking, break down your chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Next, deglaze your onions and chouriço with 3 tbsp white wine. Add salt and pepper after reducing the wine.

After, drain your white beans and add them to your pan.

Cover 3/4 of ingredients in chicken stock and begin to reduce.

Add your chicken and let cook through.
