  • Ingredients:

    4 Chicken breasts
    1 Sachet of KOO Concentrated Chicken Wet Stock
    1 can (410 g) KOO Baked Beans in Tomato & Herb Sauce

    10 ml Butter
    5 ml Crushed garlic
    50 g Butter, melted
    3 ml Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

    10 g Fresh flat leaf parsley to garnish
    1 Loaf of French bread, cut into 1 cm slices

  • Method:

    1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
    2. Half fill a medium-sized, heavy-based saucepan with cold water. Add in the concentrated chicken wet stock. Stir, then place the chicken breasts in whole.
    3. On a low heat, poach the chicken in the chicken stock for 10 – 15 minutes. The whole fillet should be white and tender. Cut the fillet open to check if the chicken is cooked through.

    5. Melt the 50 g butter and garlic together.
    6. Brush the garlic butter onto the bread slices, place on a baking tray and bake until the bread turns golden in colour. Remove and set aside.
    7. In a heavy-based frying pan, add the 10 g butter and heat the KOO Baked Beans through.
    8. Adding the chicken and flat leaf parsley. Stir through once.
    9. Spoon the baked bean and chicken topping onto the garlic toasts and serve on a platter.
    10. Garnish with fresh herbs.
