    1. Heat the oil over a high heat in a large casserole dish. Toss the chicken pieces in the flour then add to the casserole dish and brown on all sides. Add the bacon, onion and celery and cook and stir for several minutes.
    2. Stir in the tomato purée then add the remainder of the ingredients and stir well. Reduce the heat and simmer for 40 minutes until the chicken pieces are no longer pink in the middle and the juices run clear.
