Here’s what you’ll need to get started
First, we season the chicken and brown it on both sides.
Remove the chicken from the pan and throw in the potatoes to brown as well.
After the potatoes have been browned, add the chicken back again in the pan. Pour in the chicken stock. Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes or until the liquid thickens up.
Add the frozen peas and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Finally, top the chicken with the bacon.
