Chicken Chorizo with White Beans

Hey Friends,

A month ago I picked up a magazine with the intent to inspire myself and try out new recipes. When I came across a delicious looking recipe with chicken and chorizo, I knew I had to make it! But right from the get go, I wanted to change the recipe in a few different ways, to make it even better!

The Chorizo Sauce turned out FANTASTIC! In my opinion, a work of art on its own, paired with some pasta, couscous or baguette. Also perfect for a special meal like christmas, thanksgiving or just to impress your significant other with this delicious meal! I’d love to hear what you think of this dish, so leave me a comment!
