- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 onion
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 courgette
- 100g/3½oz cooking chorizo
- 100ml/3½fl oz red wine
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes

- ½ tsp dried chilli
- 1 chicken stock
- 160g/5¾oz long-grain rice
- 175g/6oz green beans

Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan or sauté pan. Add the chicken and season with the pepper. Fry for 2 minutes, stirring regularly.
Transfer the chicken to a plate using a slotted spoon or spatula and add the onion, pepper, courgette and chorizo to the pan. Fry over a medium–high heat for 3 minutes, stirring regularly.
Add the wine, tomatoes, butterbeans, tomato purée, oregano, chilli flakes and chicken stock cube to the pan. Refill the tomato tin with cold water, pour into the tomato mixture and stir. Season with a little salt and pepper.
Bring the sauce to the boil, return the chicken to the pan and simmer for 8–10 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
Meanwhile, half-fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Add the rice and simmer for 10–12 minutes, or until cooked.
Place the green beans, if using, in a small saucepan of boiling water and cook for 5–6 minutes, or until tender. Drain the beans and the rice and set aside.
Garnish with the parsley and serve immediately with the green beans and rice alongside.
