A delightful go-to Winter warmer! Enjoy


  • 6 Chicken Fillets
  • Salt and Black Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 packet of bacon, cut into squares
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, cut into +- 3cm segments
  • ¾ cup Guinness beer (Use any other beer you have, I made mine with Guiness)
  • 1 tablespoon Thyme (fresh or dried, whatever you have!)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Peel the carrots, cut into +-3cm segments and par cook these by steaming them in a steamer for a few minutes or in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper
  4. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add the chicken and garlic and brown quickly – this should take 1-2 minutes max with the heat on medium to medium-high. We are not trying to cook the chicken through here, just brown the sides.
  5. Now place the chicken, garlic, onions, carrots, bacon and tomatoes in a roasting dish. Scatter over the thyme and pour the Guinness into the dish.
  6. Cover with aluminium foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes or until done.
  7. Serve with mashed potato.
