Healthy Lebanese Chicken and Beans Stew- Fasoulia b' djej

Healthy Lebanese Chicken and Beans Stew- Fasoulia b' djej

A traditional dish, for all seasons. Fasoulia is a delicious bean dish bathed in a wonderfully delicious tomato sauce, made with either large white beans (Lima Beans, haricot beans, white kidney beans, Peruvian beans or cannellini beans).
Fasoulia b'lahem فاصوليا بلحم is a hearty and balanced meal very common in Lebanon and most of the surrounding Arab countries, particularly Syria and Palestine.
The traditional name is Fasoulia b'lahem يخنة الفاصوليا مع اللحم or simply فاصوليا بلحم because it is made with red meat. I used chicken for a healthier version. Chicken makes this dish less calories, less fat and less cholesterol. Beans has lots of fiber and very nutritious .
Beans stew with meat normally served over rice.

Fasoulia فاصوليا means beans and
Lahem لحم means meat in Arabic.
Fasoulia b'lahem literally means beans in meat (stew).
