This is a one-dish meal that is high in fiber and protein, and with chicken breast and canned beans as the main ingredients, it is very affordable to make. All you need is a loaf of crusty fresh-baked bread to go with it, and you've got every food group covered! (I based this recipe on one of Heidi Swanson's from her excellent book, Super Natural Cooking, but have varied it a lot due to my family's tastes.)

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook until beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are soft and juice from chicken runs clear, about 4 minutes more. Transfer chicken, onion, and garlic to a plate.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add beans and cook until crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, about 8 minutes. Add cooked chicken, onion, and garlic to the skillet and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.

  • Stir spinach and Parmesan cheese into the skillet. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

You can also use cannellini beans.
