  1. Fry the chorizo in a saucepan for 2-3 minutes, or until it begins to brown, then remove from the pan and set aside. Heat the olive oil in the same pan and cook the onion, garlic and chicken for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion and garlic are soft and the chicken is browned.
  2. Stir in the flour, thyme and chilli powder followed by the tomatoes, tomato puree, chicken stock, butter beans and 250ml water. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Top up with a little extra water if the stew becomes too dry.
  3. Add the chorizo and heat through. Taste the stew and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Serve immediately in warmed bowls.
