Full question

An entire can of beans is more than a gracious plenty for one person for the Chicken with Chorizo and Cannellini Beans. Is this correct in the ingredients?

Our answer

Nigella's Chicken With Chorizo And Cannellini Beans (from NIGELLA BITES) is a speedy solo supper. The cannellini beans are warmed through with pieces of chorizo, so that they absorb some of the piquant, smokey flavour from the chorizo.

The recipe uses one 400g (15-ounce) can of cannellini beans, though once drained the beans are only about half of this weight. This is on the generous side but the dish is not served with any other carbohydrate, so the beans do double duty as a vegetable and a starch in the meal. However, if you prefer you could use half of the can of beans for this recipe and store the remaining beans in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days, to use in other dishes.
