Two-Bean Cassoulet

Ingredients
6
skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 1-1/4 pounds)
1
tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil
3
medium carrots, thinly sliced
1/2
2
cloves garlic, minced
1
15 ounce can butter beans, rinsed and drained
1
15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1
8 ounce can tomato sauce
1/4
cup dry red wine
1
teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/4
teaspoon ground allspice
8
ounces smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1/2-inch slices

Directions

  1. In a large skillet brown chicken slowly in oil over medium-low heat about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from skillet, reserving drippings. Add carrots, onion, and garlic to drippings in skillet. Cover and cook about 10 minutes or until carrots are just tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the drained beans, tomato sauce, wine, thyme, and allspice. Stir in sausage. Transfer the mixture to a 2-quart casserole. Arrange chicken thighs on top.
  3. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. If desired, sprinkle with seeded and chopped tomatoes and snipped fresh parsley; bake 5 minutes more or until tomatoes are just heated through. Makes 6 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

To Tote:

Prepare casserole as above just before leaving home, omitting the tomato and parsley garnish. Cover tightly; wrap in several layers of newspaper or a heavy towel. Then place the casserole in an insulated container. Do not hold for longer than 2 hours. If using tomato and parsley garnish, pack them separately and sprinkle on casserole before serving.
