Chicken with Bacon Recipe

Bacon and Chicken casserole with dumplings

A really delicious slow cooked casserole, easy to make with a few ingredients.

You'll need;

A leg and thigh of chicken and a couple of chicken wings.

A slice of thick ham or bacon. I used bacon.

A few Mushrooms

1 small onion

2 cloves of garlic

Chicken stock or water

salt, pepper and mustard

For the dumplings:

50grams Suet

100 grams self raising flour

a little water.

A pinch of salt

Skin the chicken and place it in a casserole dish

cut the ham into chunks

slice the onion and chop up the mushrooms, placing them in the dish.

Chop the garlic and add to the dish

sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Add the chicken stock then spoon in a teaspoon of mustard.

Cover the dish and put into a preheated oven on high heat, gas mark 9.

After twenty minutes reduce the heat to gas mark 2, or 90C and cook slowly for an hour and a half.

To make the dumplings mix the ingredients together into a dough. It should be quite wet. Take small amounts and make into balls. Leave to rest.

Take the casserole dish out of the oven after an hour and a half and add the dumplings. If the gravy has reduced too much, top up with water.

Replace the dish uncovered in the oven on Gas mark 6, 200C for half an hour to cook the dumplings.

Serve the bacon and chicken immediately.
