This is an old favourite - chicken cooked "the hunter's way," which grants a certain amount of culinary licence. This, my, version is traditional enough, only speeded up and simplified. The only unexpected deviation lies in the addition of a can of cannellini beans. This, in effect, turns it into a quick, one-pot, all-inc supper. Having said that, I also adore it - as do my children - with plain steamed rice, as well. But whatever. When I cook this, I know I can count on getting tea on the table from scratch in comfortably under half an hour.

Ingredients

Directions

Put the garlic oil into a pan with the pancetta, sliced scallions and chopped rosemary and fry for a couple of minutes.

Add the bite-sized chicken pieces, stirring well, and sprinkle in the celery salt.

Pour in the wine and let it come to a bubble before adding the tomatoes, bay leaves and sugar. Put the lid on and let the pan simmer for 20 minutes.

Drain and add a tin of cannellini beans and when they have warmed through too, you are ready to eat.
