Place beans in a large saucepan with enough cold water to cover them by 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 1 hour.Advertisement
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Sprinkle chicken and pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the pork and kielbasa. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to the plate.
Add 1 tablespoon oil, onion, celery and carrots to the pot; cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, thyme, rosemary and bay leaf; cook for 30 seconds. Add wine and increase heat to high. Cook, stirring, until the wine is mostly evaporated, 4 to 6 minutes. Pour in water. Drain the beans and add to the pot; bring to a boil. Return the chicken, pork and kielbasa to the pot.
Cover the pot and bake until the beans are tender, 2 to 2 1/4 hours. Remove from the oven and season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; let stand for 15 minutes.
Just before serving, make crispy breadcrumb topping. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and crispy, about 5 minutes. Stir in parsley. Top each serving with about 1/4 cup of the crispy breadcrumbs.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 6 and freeze airtight for up to 3 months (or refrigerate for up to 3 days). Defrost overnight in the refrigerator and reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave. Prepare topping (Step 7) just before serving.
To make your own breadcrumbs, trim crusts from whole-wheat bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse (or fine) crumbs form. To make dry breadcrumbs (coarse or fine), spread on a baking sheet and bake at 250°F until dry, 10 to 15 minutes. One slice of bread makes about 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs or 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs.
