Chef John’s Quick Cassoulet Recipe



Ingredients :

  • 4 ounces bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 8 ounces smoked sausage, sliced
  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cubed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups chicken broth, plus more if needed
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • ½ cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Add bacon to a large, cold oven-ready skillet. Place over medium heat and cook for 10-12 minutes, until almost crisp. Transfer to a bowl, reserving the grease in the pan.

  • Step 2

    Stir in sausage slices; cook 3-4 minutes. Add chicken thigh pieces; cook and stir for 5 minutes, until browned. Remove meat to the plate with bacon. Discard all the oil, but don't wipe out the pan.

  • Step 3

    Add chopped onion and turn the heat to medium-low; cook and stir for 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent. Add 1 cup of chicken stock.

  • Step 4

    Mash about 1/4 of the beans in a small bowl, stir all the beans into the pan.

  • Step 5

    Stir in cayenne, rosemary and thyme. Add reserved meat back to the pan. Stir in remaining cup of stock or more if needed to cover. Return to simmer.

  • Step 6

    Mix bread crumbs, Parmigiano-Reggiano and melted butter together in a small bowl.

  • Step 7

    Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 7 inches from the heat source.

  • Step 8

    Sprinkle the cassoulet with half the bread crumb mixture. Place under the broiler and cook about 5 minutes, until browned.

  • Step 9

    Remove the pan and push bread crumbs down into the cassoulet. Top with remaining bread crumb mixture. Return to oven and continue broiling 5 more minutes, until browned.

  • Step 10

    Turn off the broiler and leave in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and let sit for 5 minutes. Enjoy.
