If It Ain’t Broke…

Paprika Bacon Chicken

Paprika Bacon Chicken

…then don’t try to fix it, baby.

The design of the modern bicycle has hardly changed since the 1880s. That’s how good it is.

Sure, new technology has lead to slight changes over the years – better tyres, lighter frames, control cables, and so on, but the core concept of a frame made of two triangles, and two equally sized wheels, the rear one being chain driven, remains unaltered.

I kind of feel the same way about this dish.

At its heart it’s just a tweaking of Smoky Leek And Mushroom Chicken.

This version uses chicken on the bone rather than breast meat, swaps out the leek for onion, and does away with the mushrooms.

I also left out the white wine, but added a couple of tablespoons of tomato purée to give the sauce a bit of body.

Chicken, bacon, paprika.

Classic combo. No fixing required.
