Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas mark 6. 6. In an ovenproof skillet or casserole dish, fry the bacon slices for 3-5 minutes, or until brown and crisp. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion is tender. Mix in the rice until it is evenly covered. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the wine is absorbed.


Stir in the cherry tomatoes and heated stock, then return to the rice. Bake for 18 minutes, or until the chicken is just done. Stir in the majority of the parmesan and serve topped with the rest.
