This is a fabulous meal on a cool fall or winter evening to share with family and friends. Using boneless chicken thighs makes it easy to serve up. Make sure to have your favourite white wine to serve alongside. This is a great meal for a gathering or to cook once and eat twice or three times!
If not serving this immediately you can reheat it with topping in 350 F (180 C) oven for about 30 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. If freezing Cassoulet, thaw in refrigerator before baking. Add additional cooking time to heat through.
To make fresh breadcrumbs, use fresh sliced bread or buns and pulse in a food processor until broken into small crumbs. Measure what you need and freeze the rest, you will have fresh breadcrumbs at the ready from the freezer for next time.
Bone is a living tissue, that is constantly renewing and repairing itself from everyday wear and tear. However, like many nutrients, calcium is absorbed less effectively as we age. Try out our calcium calculator to see if you are getting enough in your daily diet.
* The percentage of calcium is based on the Osteoporosis Canada’s daily calcium requirement for people under 50 years of age of 1000 mg.
Osteoporosis Canada’s position on nutrition for healthy bones focuses on calcium and vitamin D while stressing a well-balanced diet which includes fiber and whole grains, vitamins and minerals and protein.
