As I didn't have shallots, I substituted with a small brown onion and 4 spring onions. Served with mafalda corta pasta, it was a really tasty and easy meal.

Very easy to make. Also enough taste but I think I will try it next time with a tbs of creme fraiche, or serve with rice. Will make again though.

this is really good. Made this for my kids using chicken breasts and bacon, as that's all I had and used white wine instead of vinegar. Also added a tbs of half fat creme fraiche at the end for the sauce. They declared it delicious. Then made it for my husband and I using pancetta and more stock to make it more saucy + the creme fraiche. Fab. Will definitely make again.
