Made this with skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs and upped the cooking time as Maria stated earlier. It was absolutely divine, would be very happy to get this in a restaurant. Definitely will do again.

I've made this twice now and both times it was fabulous. I've made it both with pancetta and back bacon, equally gorgeous! If you're on slimming world, use lean back bacon and fry light and I'm sure it would be syn free!

Love this simple yet very tasty recipe. No skinless boneless thighs at Tescos both times I've made it, so used the skin on, bone in thighs and just uppped the cooking time by about 30mins so the chicken was so tender it fell off the bone. I also added a pinch of chilli flakes and secret ingredient - splash of apple juice, to increase the richness of flavour. A splash of white wine would probably work well too. I also substituted the shallot for half an onion on the 2nd occasion, and used chopped back bacon instead of pancetta as it was just what I had. Other half also loved it so this one will be on the regular menu now.
