On-the-Hunt Chicken

The Fox and the Hound is a 1981 animated feature film loosely based on the Daniel P. Mannix novel of the same name. The film tells the story of two unlikely friends, a red fox named Tod and a hound dog named Copper, who struggle to preserve their friendship despite their emerging instincts and the surrounding social pressures demanding them to be adversaries. In the film, the film’s protagonists, Tod and Copper, meet when young and become friends. They play together all summer long, however, as they grow up, they become enemies because real hounds hunt foxes for food.

Ingredients

4 slices Bacon
2 Chicken Breasts (skinless and boneless)
100g Cheese (grated)
Bull’s-Eye New York Steak House BBQ Sauce (or your favourite BBQ sauce)
Chips
Garden Peas

I remember watching this many times as a child, it was a favourite for my brothers and me. The tale of two unlikely friends was wholesome and we had it in the VHS player repeatedly. As Copper is from a hunting family and Tod is an animal that is hunted in Canada, where the film is set, I felt Hunter’s Chicken would be a good fit for the movie’s dish.

Hunter’s Chicken actually has different recipes across the world, whilst still sharing the same name. In French cuisine it is made up using sautéed chicken and a reduced chasseur sauce prepared using tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, white wine, brandy and tarragon. However I am using the British recipe form which consists of chicken fillet wrapped in bacon, in a barbecue sauce, often served with cheese on top.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 200ºC (180ºC Fan). Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each chicken breast and cook in the oven for 15 minutes.
Step 2
Add grated cheese over each breast and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and chicken is cooked through.
Step 3
Meanwhile, heat the Barbecue Sauce in a small pan for 2-3 minutes, whilst stirring.
Step 4
Pour sauce over the chicken and serve with chips and peas.
