Nigella's Pollo Alla Cacciatorra

Let’s face it, Nigella Lawson IS the queen of comfort food! I just love the way she cooks in the kitchen, the way she enjoys life eating only the most delicious food she can make - all sorts of words come to mind when describing her food "luxious" "rich" "lovely" "decadent". She has so much passion for whatever she’s doing, always. So for dinner bring that into the kitchen with this Italian dish that is delicious and total comfort food! :)

1. Put the garlic oil into a pan with the pancetta, sliced scallions and chopped rosemary and fry for a couple of minutes.
