Method Prep:20min › Cook:1hr › Ready in:1hr20min
Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
Wrap each chicken piece in a rasher of bacon, trying to cover as much of the chicken as possible. Place the wrapped chicken pieces in a 20x30cm baking dish, season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle the onion over the chicken. Push potatoes down into the spaces between the chicken pieces and around the edge of the dish.
Combine the chives, basil, garlic granules, chilli blend and black pepper in a small bowl, and sprinkle the seasoning to taste over the chicken and potatoes.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, until the bacon is crisp and brown and the potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with salt, if desired, and serve hot.
