1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

4. Soften the onion in the pan, and when it begins to turn translucent, return the bacon and chicken to the pan with the garlic, pepper, chicken stock, passata, red wine, paprika, caraway seeds and the seasoning. Bring the whole lot to the boil. 

5. When it has come to the boil, transfer the entire contents into a casserole dish with a lid, and cook in the oven for 50 minutes. Remove the lid for the last 20 minutes of cooking, to give it a nice brown colouring.
