Chicken Wrapped in Streaky Bacon

Yesterday I posted the Dauphinoise Potatoes recipe, the other half of this meal. This time around we are going for the heart of the meal the chicken breast stuff with all sorts of goodies then wrapped in a lot of streaky bacon; I was going to prepare it wrapped in pancetta but then I realised I sent my 12 yr old out to do the shopping, no matter, this turned out even better. First things first we need to prepare the stuffing. I had a...

Chicken Chasseur

Misleading menu titles, the Hunter’s Chicken episode.

On Tour – Wareham

Red Lion. North Street, Wareham BH20 4AB, England. A little gem in Wareham Camping is not a thing I do lightly; >30 years in HM Forces saw to that. My wife and our girls want me to bed under canvas yet they haven’t promised it to be bug free and bullet free, they claim they’re working on it; I remain sceptical. After an investment of several hundred £ in tents, sleeping bags and the best toilet on the market I decided...
