Ingredients (US & METRIC):
1 tbsp olive oil 8 rashers of smoked streaky bacon, roughly chopped 8 skinless chicken thigh fillets 30g (1 oz) butter 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 150ml (scant ½ cup) white wine 2 tsp Dijon mustard 2 tsp honey 2 tbsp capers 5 dashes of hot sauce, or to taste Handful of flat-leaf parsley 250g (9 oz) tenderstem broccoli Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan (skillet) and fry the bacon until golden and crisp. Scoop out with a slotted spoon, leaving the fat in the pan.

Return the bacon to the pan and add the butter and garlic. Cook for a minute then, once the butter has melted, add the wine, mustard, honey, capers, hot sauce and half of the parsley and let it reduce to a thickened sauce, about 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 3. Meanwhile, blanch the tenderstem in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, drain. 4. Serve the chicken with the broccoli, scattered with the remaining parsley.
