Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 radicchio
  • 4 free-range chicken thighs
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 50g pancetta cubes
  • 150ml chicken stock
  • 100ml white wine
  • 100g black olives

To serve

  • Fresh basil leaves (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. In a bowl, whisk 4 tbsp of the oil with 1½ tbsp of the vinegar. Season. Quarter the radicchio, then toss in the dressing to coat and set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a heatproof casserole, season the chicken, then fry skin- down for 6-8 minutes until golden. Remove and set aside.
  3. Chop the onion and garlic. Add the onion to the casserole, fry gently for 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic and fry for 2 minutes. Turn up the heat, add the pancetta and fry for 3-5 minutes, stirring until crisp.
  4. Add the stock, wine and remaining vinegar, then boil briskly. Add some pepper and the olives, then put the chicken back in the pan, skin-side up.
  5. Oven-cook for 20 minutes. After 15 minutes, heat a griddle and char the radicchio for 2-3 minutes on each side. Add to the chicken; top with the basil.
