Simple chicken with peas and bacon is a delicious and easy one pan dinner recipe. This budget meal serves 4 and can be on the table in less than an hour!
Folks, this simple chicken with peas and bacon recipe is relatively effortless and only needs one large frying pan for cooking.
That’s good news in terms of the minimal effort involved.
Plus good news regarding the dishes to be washed!
As you know I get my recipe inspiration from a number of places.
Travel (more on that below 🙂 ) and from recipes I have had the fortune to eat!
This chicken with peas and bacon is my variation of a French dish, the classic poulet à la Clamart.
I was lucky enough to be served this dish when I stayed with a French family as part of a school exchange. Many moons ago……
The original classic French recipe calls for whole chicken thighs to be used.
Here I’ve swapped out the whole chicken thighs and used chopped up lean boneless skinless chicken breasts instead.
Chopping up the chicken breasts means that they cook quicker.
The rest of the ingredients should be quite easy to get and cheaply too.
For the wine I usually only buy a 125ml miniature which is enough to cook with.

Coming Thursday on Neil’s Healthy Meals
Well folks there’s no recipe next week. 😮
Nope, that’s because I’m off on more walking adventures with Lady Lynne and our friend Jen.
You may recall the three of us did The West Highland Way last year?
Well this year the three of us are walking The Cumbria Way. It’s a 70 mile, 5 day hike through The Lake District from Ulverson to Carlisle.
The three of us are tremendously excited to see some of the most spectacular scenery in this country that can only be seen on foot.
Also, we are staying at some pretty amazing places serving local food and real ale!
I’ll take loads of pictures and report back to you when I get back.
Turkey Rice Casserole will be the next recipe you can look forward to on our return!
