Method

  1. Put the chicken into a large bowl, add the flour, salt and black pepper and mix together. Toss together until thoroughly coated.

  2. Heat a large saute pan until hot, add 1 teaspoon of the oil and the chicken and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally until just browned.

  3. Remove to a bowl. Add the chopped bacon to the pan and fry for 2 minutes until golden. Add the onion and stir well, then cook for another 2 minutes.

  4. Stir in the garlic and thyme leaves and return the chicken to the pan. Add the Mud House Sauvignon Blanc and cook for 2-3 minutes until reduced by half then add the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickened slightly.

  5. While the chicken cooks, saute the potatoes.  Heat a frying pan until medium hot, add the remaining oil and the potatoes and fry over a medium heat until just turning golden brown and cooked all the way through. Turn the heat up, add the rosemary and fry for another 2 minutes until the rosemary is toasted and the potatoes browned.

  6. Serve the chicken with the sauce spooned over and the potatoes alongside.
