Excellent, great flavor, easy and whilst cooking it smelled great! I used skinless thighs with the bone in and it produced lovely juices. Won't make this that much this time of year but certainly in the autumn and winter. The chicken was tender, I uncovered the dish the last 15 minutes of cooking, there were enough juices, this time of year it is difficult to buy floury potatoes and new ones don't soak up the stock so much. The bacon was very good in it.
