It's been quite awhile since I participated with the group at I Heart Cooking Club. They have a new feature called Potluck allowing you to play along cooking with any of the former featured chefs. There are quite a few which I love but Nigella always wins out for me. I love her cookbooks.
This version of Nigella's Chicken Schnitzel with bacon and white wine is one our go to recipes. It's easy, it's flavorful and has bacon. Love me some bacon! In stead of breast halves or tenders we used chicken legs and thighs. And rather than use a skillet, this was tipped into a roasting pan. This recipe comes from Nigella Express.
You need just a few ingredients.......
1 teaspoon garlic infused oil
4 strips of bacon (I used 6 strips)
chicken tenders, breast halves, thighs or legs...whichever you prefer
1/3 cup white wine
After heating the oil a bit add bacon and fry up until crispy. Set aside and crumble when cool.
Fry the chicken in the leftover bacon grease for a few minutes, turning to assure browning. Now tip into a large roasting pan and cover with bacon bits and white wine. Roast until chicken is cooked through, roughly 50 minutes for legs and less time for breast pieces if you are using those.
Potluck is scheduled for the week of May 20th so be sure to check it out next month at IHCC and also right here at Squirrel Head Manor. I will be linking with them with another Nigella recipe...or perhaps Jamie Oliver. We'll see what's on the menu by then.
Sharing this with IHCC. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. ♥ ♥
