Wrapping most things in bacon is good, right? This chicken is no exception. We've added fragrant sage, torn mushrooms (no, we've not lost it - they're quicker this way!), sage-buttered mash and an easy pan sauce. Now that, is a wrap!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1  Bacon & Sage Wrapped Chicken

Preheat the grill to high

Boil a kettle

Separate the sage leaves from their stalks, keep a few whole leaves aside for later and chop the remaining finely

2  Bacon & Sage Wrapped Chicken

Peel and cut the potato[es] into bite-size pieces

Peel the garlic

Add both the potatoes and garlic to a pot of salted boiled water and cook over a high heat for 10-20 min or until fork tender 

3  Bacon & Sage Wrapped Chicken

Meanwhile, rip and tear the mushrooms up 

Tip: ripping the mushrooms creates texture and saves time!

Add the ripped mushrooms to a baking tray lined with tin foil, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper

4  Bacon & Sage Wrapped Chicken

Place your hand flat on the chicken breast[s]

Carefully, slice the chicken in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with two thinner pieces 

5  Bacon & Sage Wrapped Chicken

Place a couple of sage leaves over each piece of chicken, then wrap each piece of chicken in 2 rashers of bacon

Add the wrapped chicken to the tray with the mushrooms

Put the tray directly under the grill and cook for 10-15 min or until the bacon has cooked and crisped and the chicken is cooked through

6  Bacon & Sage Wrapped Chicken

Once cooked, drain the potatoes and leave them in a colander, then return the pot to a medium-low heat with a large knob of butter

Add the remaining chopped sage and cook for 1 min, then add the potatoes, a big splash of milk and salt and pepper

Mash until smooth

7  Bacon & Sage Wrapped Chicken

Remove the cooked chicken and mushrooms from the grill 

Transfer the chicken to a chopping board to rest a little 

Sieve the mushrooms and collected juices into a small pan

Add the pan to a low heat and stir in the clotted cream until melted, then season with pepper - this is your pan sauce
