Autumn chicken chorizo and mixed bean stew

Autumn chicken chorizo and mixed bean stew

Autumn is here… dum dum dum dam

Shorter days, layered clothes, pumpkin colours and food consumed with a spoon. What is not to like about this season? When the weather changes so does my food-mood. I enjoy simmer dishes, and anything that has a slight kick to it. Any food or drink that warms me up is the right kind of food for autumn (in my humble opinion). Warning: This dish is not a “pretty” dish, nor is in Instagram-friendly, but your tastebuds will thank you for days so do not judge the book by its cover 😉

Also, there has been very silent on the recipe side: Sorry! In 11 days I will be walking down the aisle in a white dress, and my mind has been on one million other things than food. I sincerely hope you will enjoy this kick-off recipe, which was largely inspired by FoodFanatic. Her stuff is amazing. I like to twist and turn dishes, which is what I have done with this one. I promise you, it will warm you up all the way through. Perfect for a cold day, followed by a visit to your couch wrapped in a blanket!

The Goodies:

Serving size: 4 portions 

  • 650 g chicken
  • 200 g chorizo
  • 2 onions
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 cans of diced tomato
  • 250 g white mushrooms
  • 3 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 can mixed beans (butter, kidney, white)
  • 5 dl chicken broth
  • 1-2 tbsp herb de provence
  • Salt and pepper
  • Serving suggestion: Red rice, white rice, black rice or wholegrain bread

The How:

  1. Chop or blend your onions to desired size and press garlic. Set the two aside on a plate.
  2. Chop your chicken and chorizo into bite sized pieces.
  3. Add olive oil to a big pot and add your onions to it.
  4. Add chicken and let it take colour (do not let it cook fully like this).
  5. Chop red bell pepper and mushrooms roughly.
  6. Drain and rinse your beans.
  7. Add cans of diced tomato, beans and chicken broth to the pot with chicken.
  8. Take mushrooms, bell pepper and spinach and put it into the stew
  9. Add your spices and let it simmer for 20-ish minutes, or until the chicken is cooked.
  10. Serve with your choice of side (we had red rice as I truly enjoy the full flavouring they have).

I hope you like it 🙂
