Pretend You’re Fancy Chicken

You know those moments in life where you feel like a rock star; like you’ve made it and you’ve got this life thing under control? Yeah I have absolutely NO idea what that feels like hahaha But this dish, when I serve it, I imagine myself dropping the mic at the dinner table.  This one is a winner.  Everyone likes it. And it looks like a lot of effort when in reality there is no prep, no chopping, and not extra dishes.  If you need a “drop the mic” moment at the dinner table, try this one!Pretend You're Fancy Chicken- Life with the HawleysFrom the Kitchen of Darby Hawley
8 stripes of good thick bacon, chopped into 1-inch pieces (I cut mine with scissors)
8 chicken thighs, bone-in
sea salt
ground pepper
2-15 oz. cans garbanzo beans, un-drained
Italian parsley, roughly chopped

1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Cook bacon until crispy in a cast iron skillet (I use a 15-inch skillet).  Remove the bacon and place on a paper towel to drain.
2. Place chicken in the hot cast iron skillet with the bacon grease.  Season with sea salt & pepper.  Put in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
3. Add the chickpeas (with the juice) to the skillet and top with the crispy bacon.  Roast for 20-25 more minutes.  Add the parsley before serving.
4. Enjoy!
xoxo Darby
