DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO COOK COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHICKEN RECIPE

Melt the butter over medium-high heat until it foams in a pan. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off excess, and fry, in batches if needed, until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes.

Transfer the chicken to a plate. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat in the pan. Return pan to medium heat, add the bacon and fry until crispy. Transfer to a plate and crumble and set aside.

Add the onion, pepper, celery, garlic, curry powder and 1 tablespoon of the currants to the pan and sauté over medium-high heat until soft and fragrant, about 7 minutes. 

Stir in the tomatoes and their juices, bring to a boil and simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spread 1 cup of the tomato sauce in the bottom of an ovenproof casserole large enough to hold the chicken snugly in one layer.
