Chicken, bacon and potato bake recipe
This chicken, bacon and potato bake is filled with easy ingredients that will please adults and children alike. Serve with a nice big salad and let everyone help themselves.
- 3-4 potatoes
- 600g chicken thigh fillets
- 150g bacon rachers
- 3 tomatoes, quartered
- 3 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 rosemary stalk, leaves removed
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced).
Peel potatoes and cut into large wedges. Boil for 6-8 minutes until just tender. Drain.
Slice chicken thighs into 2-3 pieces each. In a large baking dish, combine chicken with bacon, tomatoes, potatoes, garlic and rosemary leaves. Toss it all in the oil and season well.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning everything halfway through so that it browns nicely.
- Parboiling the potatoes will ensure everything cooks evenly and you don't end up with dry chicken.
- Use any hardy herbs you have on hand - thyme or oregano would be lovely as well.
