  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Place chicken in the pot. Cook and stir 7 to 10 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in the carrot, onion, celery, garlic, chilli powder, cumin, paprika and salt and pepper; cook and stir until the onion is translucent and the vegetables are beginning to soften, 3 to 4 more minutes.
  2. Stir in the hot buffalo wing sauce, passata, chopped tomatoes, cannellini beans and kidney beans. Bring to the boil and simmer over medium-low heat about 1 hour, until the vegetables are tender and the flavours have blended.
