1.5kg/3lb of chicken, cut into cubes
1 Onion chopped
1 Garlic Clove crushed
3 rashers of bacon chopped
25g/1oz of flour
425ml/15 fl.oz of dry cider
2 red apples cored and chopped
150ml/5 fl.oz of double cream
Heat oil in saucepan and add your chicken pieces and brown on all sides, then remove and put on a plate. Add onion, garlic and bacon into the saucepan and fry for 5 minutes. Stir in flour to form a smooth paste. Gradually stir in the cider and bring to the boil, then simmer for 2 minutes.
Return chicken to the pan and simmer for 40 mins or until chicken is cooked through. Stir in the apples and cream and heat for 3 minutes; do not bring to the boil. It will catch on the bottom of the pan if you’re not careful.
