- Serves 4
Our June cover star is a lovely, light dish ideal for al fresco dining
- STEP 1
Dust the chicken in the flour and some seasoning. Heat the oil in a lidded pan and brown the chicken, in batches if needed, then transfer to a plate. Throw in the bacon and fry for 5 mins, until crisp.
- STEP 2
Return the chicken to the pan. Add the stock, cover and simmer for 30 mins, adding the potatoes after 10 mins.
- STEP 3
Make sure the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are tender, then stir in the cheese, the rest of the vegetables and some seasoning. Simmer for 5 mins more, uncovered, then serve.
Chicken thighs make a good-value alternative to breasts, however, if you prefer the white breast meat, then swap for 4 skinless breasts, and simmer for just 20 mins with the potatoes.
