“A wonderful warm, hearty recipe from Company's Coming Main Courses. The gravy is delicious and perfect for baked potatoes. I add a bit of oregano and garlic for extra flavour, but omit the salt, just in case the bacon adds enough. I usually fry the bacon a little before adding the chicken, too, otherwise it never seems to get crunchy for me!”
