Sitting on my bench at the moment is a tray of chicken thighs and some bacon.
Ideas for dinner tonight please, preferably with a sauce.

Are they drumsticks or thighs? You could make a simple braise - brown the chicken pieces and chopped bacon in butter, lower heat and add a finely chopped onion and some garlic, cook over low heat for five minutes to soften the onions. Add fresh chicken stock, salt and pepper, simmer for about 45 minutes until tender and sauce reduced to about 1/2 a cup. Add 1/2 c plain cream, adjust seasoning with salt/lemon juice. Add 1/2 c finely chopped parsley or dill, or 1/4c finely chopped sage.

Alternatively use olive oil instead of butter, use a tin of chopped tomatoes instead of stock, omit cream, add 1 tab dried oregano. Some chopped anchovies would be good in this version.
