Chicken mignon with harissa butter
Chicken, bacon and some fiery harissa butter – this is one tasty way to have your chook
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Lay the chicken thighs on a cutting board, scatter with the thyme and season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Roll the chicken tightly and then wrap the bacon rashers around each roll of chicken. Secure with a toothpick.
  4. Coat the bottom and inside of an ovenproof dish with the olive oil. Lay the sliced onion in a single layer in the bottom of the dish, then sit the rolled chicken on top of the onions.
  5. Drop 1 tablespoon of the harissa butter on top of each roll of chicken, top with a sprig of thyme and then bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes – basting a couple of times during cooking.
  6. Prepare your vegetables as the chicken cooks – serve as soon as it comes out of the oven, removing the toothpicks beforehand.
