Chicken and Cannellini for dinner

So I was wondering what to make for dinner. I had some boneless, skinless chicken breast along with a few pounds of Cannellini beans, oninon, garlic, parsley, chicken stock and some white wine.

Cut up a medium onion. Melted 3tbsp of butter in a pan over medium-low heat. Add chopped onion to the mix. Mince 3 garlic gloves and add to the onions when onions are translucent.

Cut chicken breast into chunks – about 1.5-2.0 inches. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and tarragon.

Add a little bit of olive oil to the onion/garlic mixture just so the chicken has enough fat to cook in. Then add the chicken to the pan, increase heat to medium. Turn chicken about 3 to 4 minutes in and then wait about 5 or so minutes to start forming the sauce.

I added 3tbsp of flour to the pan and stirred it into the fat. Then added about a half cup of white wine of your choosing, along with a cup to 1.5 cup of chicken stock to thin the sauce a bit.

I had soaked the cannellini’s earlier and cooked them to just about the point before they turn to mush. I did this over low-med heat for about an hour and fifteen minutes. Then when they were done I drained them, reserving the liquid, and put them in the pan with the chicken and sauce.

Tossed in some fresh chopped parsley and stirred to combine.

It tastes awesome and is VERY filling.
