Red Bird Pile Chicken

Hey guys. This recipe, although not the most attractive dish, is absolutely delicious!

A big, crispy honey-garlic chicken breast, smothered in a flavourful chunky tomato and bacon sauce. Yes, bacon. 🙂

I’ve also been craving tomato like mad 🙂

You will need:

  • 2 cups diced tomato
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 3-4 strips of good quality bacon (no, not the maple kind)
  • 2 large chicken breasts, skin on
  • Fresh basil leaves – about a tablespoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Raw honey
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Coconut oil
Phew! I swear that it’s not as hard as it looks.

Step one:

Dump everything EXCEPT the chicken & honey in the pot. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Be generous! Set on a medium simmer for about 45mins. Now for that chicken…

Step two:

Preheat oven to 425.  on a lightly greased pan, place the chicken breasts skin side up. Rub generously with garlic/onion powder, salt and pepper. Drizzle with honey (about a teaspoon, some of it will melt off). Pop it in the oven for 30-45min; depending on the size of your chicken boob. Prick it with a fork, if the juices run clear it’s done. If there’s pink, keep baking.

Step three:

OM NOM NOM BIRD PILE! Have fun mopping up the yummy sauce with the chicken. This would be great with some roasted veggies too!
