Sicilian green beans


  • Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot and gently sauté the onion and garlic until tender, regularly stirring.
  • Add the wine, stir and cook for about 5 mins until the liquid has reduced quite heavily.
  • Then add the beans, tomatoes and fresh herbs. Stir well and add ½ cup stock with seasonings. Turn down the heat and gently cook until the beans are tender and the sauce is thick and fragrant, adding more stock if needed.
  • To accompany the beans, cook the chicken on a preheated, lightly oiled ridged grill (or BBQ), skin side down first.
