Quick Cassoulet Recipe: How to Make Chicken Cassoulet in Less Than 30 Minutes!

Cassoulet, a classic French stew made with beans and meat, usually takes hours to make. This one is table ready in about 30 minutes, but tastes like it has cooked all day!

You'll need:

  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts or 4 boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 6 ounces turkey sausage, cut into chunks

Here's how you make it:

  1. Mash a 1/2 cup of the beans. Set aside.
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a pan and cook chicken until browned on both sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Pour the other 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the same pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onion is soft, about 3-4 minutes. 
  4. Add rosemary, thyme, and salt and pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring, 1 more minute. 
  5. Turn heat to high and add wine. Cook, stirring, until wine is reduced by half, about 2 minutes. 
  6. Add broth, turkey sausage, the whole and mashed beans and chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. 
  7. Taste and adjust seasonings. 

Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

Do you cut up the chicken or leave it in whole pieces? The photo shows whole pieces but directions say cut up.
Donna John
You can do either, but I always cut mine up into pieces, as it states in the recipe. If you leave it whole, it takes longer to cook and you may have to add a bit more broth. Heather Holter
