How to Cook Chicken and Bacon Casserole

  1. Cut the small chickens in two down the middle and coat them completely in olive oil. Add salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste. Place the chicken halves in a casserole dish with the cut side downwards and lay three slices of bacon over each portion. Peel and roughly chop the onions and cut the tomatoes into quarters. Add these to the casserole, add the wine and sprinkle the thyme over.
  2. Place the casserole dish (uncovered) in a preheated moderate oven Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC. Once the bacon has begun to grill, baste with the white wine. Cook for 35-40 minutes, basting regularly with the juices. Serve hot with French fried potatoes or roast potatoes

If you want to add a "tang" to the dish without spoiling it, break up a garlic clove in your fingers and rub it over the chicken. It will add just a slight flavour of garlic, but nothing too strong.

I used chicken breasts instead of whole, small chickens, but the result was still spectacular! As you say in the recipe, the marriage between chicken and bacon was made in heaven! Ready a drop-dead simple recipe that anyone could do.
