  • We love cooking this casserole in our Le Creuset Cast Iron Casserole.



  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large frying pan. Season the chicken drumsticks with salt and freshly ground black pepper and brown them in the frying pan, then remove to an ovenproof casserole dish.
  • In the same pan, fry the onion, chorizo and garlic for 5 minutes to brown lightly then add to the casserole along with the butter beans. Add the tomatoes and stock and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover with a lid and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the same frying pan and add the breadcrumbs, paprika, oregano and parsley and fry until it is well mixed and going a little crisp.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and spread this breadcrumb mixture over the casserole, then bake for a further 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
