Impossibly easy, this chicken sauté blends creamy cannellini beans and fresh basil plus chopped canned tomatoes. Bellissimo!
Updated May 13, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (14.5-oz.) can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, undrained
  • 1 (15 or 19-oz.) can cannellini beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken thighs; cook until lightly browned on all sides.
  • 2
    Reduce heat to medium-low. Add garlic to skillet; cook about 1 minute or until tender. Add tomatoes; cover and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Stir in beans; cook until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with basil.

  • Fragrant basil partners with tomatoes in many a Mediterranean-inspired dish. If you have a pot of it growing in or just outside your home, you will find yourself using it often, both as a seasoning and a garnish.
  • Always refrigerate or freeze perishables (such as raw meat and fish), deli foods and leftovers (like this high-protein entree) within 2 hours of preparing or purchase.
  • Round out your dinner with fluffy rice or pasta to soak up the savory juice and an antipasto tray with olives, marinated artichokes, cheese cubes, etc.
