8 slices DBL Smoked Cdn Bacon, cut into 1 inch segments
4 tbsp Canola oil
Sea salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste.
( this guy takes 55 min. to cook / only 10 to prep )
The Main: #1. Season all chicken pieces completely. Using a large or 2 med skillets / saute pans etc. ( pre-heated ) add, in order, olive oil, bacon segments & then chicken...brown thoroughly & cook 3/4 thru. Remove from pan(s) & set aside. #2. Immediately pop pearl onions, carrot, garlic & thyme into these pan juices & saute until just soft. Pop in the apple wedges & yellow bell pepper sections & continue sauting until these become soft #3. Make Room! Add back in the chichen pieces + the cider & chicken stock and simmer gently for an additional 10 minutes.
#1. In a pre-heated 12 inch cast iron ( ok...Stainless Steel if you must ) skillet, saute the bacon until browned & crisp. #2. Pop the onions into this lovely setting & cook until translucent...but not brown. ( may take 3 -5 min ) Remove from pan, set aside and drain the excess fat from the pan. ( Remember to reserve it!! )
#3. Toss the potatoes with the onion & bacon + 2 tbsp of the oil + freshly ground pepper. Get it all coated nicely. Now let's layer the potato mixture, overlapping & building layers as we go, into our skillet. Medium heat SVP. cover & cook for approx 20 minutes. Remember to shake the pan ocassionally, until the bottom has pleasantly browned. ( Oui, the skillet is perhaps a little heavy...you'll forget that while eating!! ) Slide the now, semi done Galette unto a plate / platter. Add remaining oil to skillet and invert the galette back into the pan. Recover & continue to cook for another 20 minute...uncover ...at this point and contine cooking for a further 10 minutes. Volia! You are done!!
Service: Galette cut into wedges, topped with parsley garnish, chicken pieces & veg arranged & drizzled with a little cider vinegar & some fleur de sel. A reasonable wire to aid the digestion? A full bodied Cahors or Madiran from the Sud-Ouest de France. Ou the Amarone enhanced Auk Island Winery's " Sleeveen!!
