This is one of my favorite recipes. I hope you enjoy cooking it.
What you will need;
1 whole chicken
1 cup of chopped streaky bacon
1 cut carrots
8 garlic cloves
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp oil
salt and pepper to taste
Rub the whole chicken with salt and pepper ( rubbing the chicken means literally giving it a good massage).
Heat the oil and butter in the frying pan and add the garlic cloves. Fry these till lightly browned. Remove with a slotted spoon.
Add the chopped bacon. Remove it with a slotted spoon once browned.
Saute onions until golden brown.
Now add the chicken and brown on all sides.
Arrange your baking bowl like this;
Layer of carrots and garlic covered with the browned bacon. Place the chicken on top of it. Now cover the chicken with the golden brown onion and pour the oil and fat from the frying pan.
Cover the chicken with an aluminium foil and let it bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 45 minutes.
Take off the cover and let it bake in the oven for another 30 minutes.
Once baked let it rest on the serving tray for 10 minutes. Then pour some of the juices along with the onions on the chicken.
You could serve this with some mash. tastes awesome.
