Bud Spencer's favourite - Beans with onions
About the idea
I guess there is no one on the world who have not heard of Bud Spencer or did not see at least one of his many-many films.
I have to admit, since my childhood he is one of my favourite actors, together with Terence Hill of course. In most of their movies they are eating a more or less 'special' meal, beans with onions and I always wondered how should it look like as a full, stodgy dish - as the one in the films looked like a bit too simple.
About 3 years ago I decided to try to make it on my own, so in the following you can get to know my 'secret' recipe :).
I hope you will like it!
Bud Spencer starred in a film which title is 'Even Angels Eat Beans' (1973).
Fantastic meal in less than an hour
- 300g chicken breasts, sliced
- 400g white beans, canned
- 200g red beans, canned
- 150g peas, frozen or canned
- 150g sweet corn, canned
- 2pcs onion, sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 tsp sweet paprika, ground
- 200g ketchup
- 1 cube chicken stock
- some olive oil
- some salt and black pepper, grounded
- some parsley
Did you know?
Bud Spencer and Terence Hill starred together in 18 films.
- Cut the chicken breast into slices, spice it with salt and black pepper and stir-fry it in a non-stick wok or pan on some olive oil until its cooked through (about 15-20 mins).
- Then add the sliced onion, the crushed garlic and the sweet paprika to the chicken. Pour some water into the mixture as well, to make sure it will not burn. Turn down the heat and simmer from now on.
- After these, add the beans, the sweet corn and the peas to the food and mix the ketchup into it. Crumble the chicken stock cube onto all of these and stir well. According to your taste, add some more salt or ground black pepper if needed.
- Simmer the food for another 5-10 mins until all the vegetables are cooked through.
- Finally sprinkle it with parsley and serve it warm.
