Chicken & sausage 'Cassoulet'


  • Preheat oven to 170°C fan forced (190°C normal).
  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a heavy-bottomed casserole (or pot that can go into the oven) and brown the chicken all over in batches. Remove.
  • Then seal the sausages all over and remove.
  • Add the red onion and garlic to the casserole, and gently sauté, scraping the bottom of the dish as you do so.
  • Then add the bacon and briefly toss.
  • Add the stock, tomatoes, bay leaves and cannelini beans. Stir and taste for seasoning.
  • Then return the chicken and sausages to the casserole, spreading out in one layer.
  • Combine the breadcrumbs and parsley. Then sprinkle them over the top of the 'cassoulet' in a thick layer. Spray with oil and cook in the oven for about 30-40 mins until golden brown and bubbling and the chicken is cooked.
  • Serve with a simple green salad on the side.
  • nb. If browning too much, cover with kitchen foil.
