Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) dried red kidney beans such as Compliments Red Kidney Beans, rinsed
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
  • 1 1/2 lb (750 g) Sensations by Compliments skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) Cajun seasoning
  • 1 can (796 mL) no sodium added diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Compliments Long Grain Rice
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped fresh parsley

Method

  1. Add dried beans to multicooker. Add 6 cups (1.5 L) water. Lock on lid. Pressure cook on HIGH PRESSURE 14 to 16 min., or until tender. Release pressure manually according to manufacturer’s instructions before removing lid. (Note: If additional cooking is required, lock on lid, activate HIGH PRESSURE to cook for additional minutes.) Drain and rinse beans; set aside.
  2. Turn multicooker to SAUTE function according to manufacturer’s instructions. Add oil. Cook chicken, onion, celery and pepper until chicken browns, 6 to 8 min. Stir in Cajun seasoning to coat. Stir in tomatoes, rice and 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) water. Lock on lid. Cook on HIGH PRESSURE for 8 min., or until rice is tender. Release pressure manually according to manufacturer’s instructions before removing lid.
  3. While mixture is hot, stir in reserved beans. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
Tip:
For a shorter cooking time, soak dried beans overnight; add to multicooker when tomatoes and rice are added.
Substitute dried beans with canned for a speedy preparation. Drain and rinse 1 or 2 cans (19 oz/540 mL each) beans; stirring in at end of cooking time.
