Hunters Chicken

This is my ultimate comfort food! It’s really easy to make and prepare. I even made the sauce from my store cupboard staples. Because I have two chicken dishes and a soup to make this week, I brought a whole chicken. The breasts will used for the hunters chicken, the thigh meat for a pie and the carcass as the stock for the soup.

Serves 2

For the barbecue sauce:


150g tomato ketchup 

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp salt

1 clove of garlic, crushed 

2 tbsp brown sugar 

  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Heat ketchup, sugar and garlic in a saucepan and cook until sugar is no longer granulated.
  3. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

For Hunters Chicken: 


2 chicken breasts 

4-6 rashers of streaky bacon 

100g cheddar cheese, grated 

Barbecue sauce

  1. Wrap the bacon around the chicken, making sure the ends are underneath the chicken when putting them in an oven proof dish. Pour the barbecue sauce over the chicken and then sprinkle the cheese on top.
  2. Cook in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.

  1. I’ve never made hunter chicken from scratch before & today I sort of did (used pre made bbq sauce) & it’s was great better than the shops, just need to add a bit of honey to thicken the sauce.
