Recipe Info:

  • Servings: 2-3
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • ½ pound boneless and skinless chicken
  • 2 medium sized garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 can black or red kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 medium sized onion (chopped)
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large tomato (chopped)
  • 1 cup chicken broth (homemade, low sodium is preferred)
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Rinse chicken under running water; with the help of paper towels pat dry the excess. Using a sharp knife cut chicken into 1 inch pieces; or chop it up the way you prefer.

Sprinkle salt and black pepper generously all over the pieces.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken pieces to the hot oil in a single layer; cook for 5 minutes until golden brown; transfer browned chicken pieces to a plate using slotted spoon.

Sauté chopped onions along with minced garlic in the same skillet for 2-3 minutes until fragrant; add chopped tomatoes with ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper and kidney beans to the onions; cook for 2 minutes while scraping up the residues from the bottom of the skillet with the juices released from tomatoes.

Pour 1 cup of low sodium chicken broth into the skillet; bring to a boil; reduce the heat to low; return chicken back to the skillet; cook for 7-8 minutes until beans and chicken cooked through.

Off the heat once done; transfer to a serving bowl; garnish with fresh coriander leaves if you like; serve hot over brown rice/couscous or crusty bread.

Notes & Tips:

  • Any part of the chicken can be used in the recipe.
  • Cooking time varies according to the thickness of the chicken.
  • Substitute cayenne pepper with sweet paprika if you have low tolerance for spiciness.
  • Mixed beans can be used instead of a single variety of kidney beans.
  • For more added flavors top the stew with sour cream or shredded cheddar cheese and serve.
