Aromatic Chicken Pieces with Bacon & Herbs

The weekend is almost here. As usual, we are looking forward to cooking something special. This weekend will be even more special than others. The long waiting is over and the final of Game of Thrones is coming this Sunday! We can`t wait to see who is going to sit on the iron throne, how about you?!
So as you could already guess, today`s special we dedicate to our favorite TV show and we promise, it is as much mind-blowing as it! Tiny chicken thigh pieces with smoky bacon, baby mushrooms, and roasted peppers, lightly seasoned with spring herbs. We served on a canape of mash potato with a side of a wild rocket for a complete tasty experience. We hope you`ll love it too!
