Chicken in cider

Chicken in cider

A warming meal of juicy chicken thighs fried with bacon, apples and cider. Try it with mashed potato.


Preparation method

  1. Place the butter in a heavy-based, lidded casserole over a medium heat.

  2. Add the sliced onion and allow to soften for one minute.

  3. Place the chicken thighs, skin-side down, into the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until the skin begins to brown.

  4. Add the sliced bacon, turn the thighs over, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, or until the bacon begins to colour.

  5. Add the apples and allow to soften for one minute.

  6. Pour in the cider and season with a pinch of salt. Cover with a lid and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken juices run clear.

  7. Serve immediately, taking the pot to the table and allowing people to help themselves.
