1 tbsp garlic flavoured oil
110g pancetta cubes, or lardons
6 spring onions, finely sliced
1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
450g chicken thigh fillets, each cut into 4 pieces
1/2 tsp celery salt
110ml white wine
1 (400g) can chopped tomatoes
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp sugar
1 (400g) can cannellini beans, optional

Put the garlic oil into a pan with the pancetta, sliced spring onions and chopped rosemary and fry for a couple of minutes.

Add the bite-sized chicken pieces, stirring well and sprinkle in the celery salt. Pour in the wine and let it come to a bubble before adding the tomatoes, bay leaves and sugar. Put the lid on and let the pan simmer for 20 minutes.

Drain and rinse the cannellini beans, if using and add to the pan about 10 minutes before the end of cooking. When they have warmed through, you are ready to eat.
