You can make it with Chicken, Beef, Lamb,Turkey,Grouse,Duck etc ..what every you prefer
It can also be made the night before and put in the fridge to just pop in the oven for about 45 mins when you want to eat it the next day
All you will have to do is sprinkle over the prepared breadcrumbs
8 bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 pounds) (I used Chicken Breasts with rib bone in)
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
8 ounces chicken sausage or kielbasa, cut into 1/4-inch slices (I used Polish Kielbasa Sausage)
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 carrots, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 garlic cloves, minced or generous sprinkling of garlic powder
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 (19-ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 cup chopped Italian or flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese or Cheddar
1. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large deep-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook in batches, turning occasionally, 10 minutes or until well browned. Remove chicken to a plate, and set aside.
2. Add sausage to skillet, and cook, turning often, for 6 minutes or until sausage is well browned. Remove from skillet.
3. Reduce heat to medium, and add onion, and carrot to skillet. Cook, stirring often, 10 minutes or until softened. Stir in garlic, and cook 1 minute. Stir in broth, and scrape up any browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add tomato, next 3 ingredients, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; stir to mix well. Add chicken and sausage. Spoon into a casserole dish or cook in cast iron skillet like I did then pop the cassoulet in the skillet straight in to the oven .
4. You can also make it the night before and cover and refrigerate overnight, or combine breadcrumbs and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl; stir to mix well. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle mixture over casserole.
Bake, uncovered, at 350°/180º/Gas Mark 4 for 45 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and crumbs are lightly browned.
