ITALIAN CHICKEN WITH HAM, BASIL & BEANS

Directions

  • Detach chicken thigh. Wrap each thigh in a piece of ham, with the ends tucked underneath.
  • Heat oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3.
  • Heat the oil in a large roasting tin over two of the burners on the hob.
  • Add the chicken and fry for about 4 mins or until the ham is just crisped and the chicken is lightly golden.
  • Turn and repeat.
  • Meanwhile, cut the garlic bulbs in half around the middle and halve the tomatoes if small, quarter them if they're big.
  • Pick the leaves from the rest of the basil.
  • Once the chicken has browned on both sides, add all of the tomatoes, half of the basil and the wine.
  • Season then cover with foil and leave to cook slowly in the oven for 40 mins.
  • Take out of the oven and turn the heat up to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7.
  • Remove the foil from the pan and stir the beans into the tomatoey juices.
  • Return to the oven, uncovered, for 30 mins until the tomatoes, chicken and garlic are starting to crisp around the edges and the chicken is very tender.
  • Just before serving, tear the remaining basil roughly then stir through or scatter over the pan.
