    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • 2 Tbsp all-purpose-flour
    • 2 Tbsp Al Wadi Al Akhdar extra virgin olive oil
    • 3 Slices bacon, shredded
    • 5 Garlic cloves, minced
    • 200g/1 Cup shallots, peeled but left whole
    • 1 Cup Al Wadi Al Akhdar frozen baby carrots
    • 400ml/2 Cups chicken stock

    Step 1

    Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Coat lightly with flour and cook in a large pan with butter until browned on all sides.

    Step 2

    In a separate skillet, fry the oil and cook the bacon for 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and add to the chicken.

    Step 3

    Now using the same bacon oil cook the garlic and shallots until browned. Add the carrots and 1 cup of stock and cook for 5-7 minutes.

    Add all to the chicken and bacon. Stir in the remaining stock and the red wine. Sprinkle with thyme and bring the sauce to a boil and then simmer gently for about 25 minutes.

    Step 5

    Add the vinegar. Add the mushrooms and simmer until the chicken is tender and the sauce is thick. Stir in the cream and lower the heat to a simmer for about 4-5 minutes.

    Step 6

    Finish with a sprinkle of chopped parsley.
