Updated Nov 26, 2012

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large onions, chopped (2 cups)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups cubed (1/2 inch) unpeeled red potatoes
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, undrained
  • 2 cans (15.5 oz each) great northern beans, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    In 4- or 5-quart Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat 6 to 7 minutes, until crisp. Remove bacon with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside.
  • 2
    Sprinkle chicken with thyme, salt and pepper. Cook chicken in bacon drippings over medium-high heat about 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink in center. Remove chicken and juices from pan to bowl; cover to keep warm.
  • 3
    Add oil to Dutch oven; reduce heat to medium. Cook onions and garlic in oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened and lightly browned. Add 2 cups water, the potatoes, cider and tomatoes. Cook uncovered over medium heat about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in beans, bacon and chicken. Cover; simmer 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with parsley.
