Ingredients

1 (3 1/2-pound) roasting chicken 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 3 slices center-cut bacon 1 cup chopped onion 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt 2 cups packed torn spinach 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary 2 (16-ounce) cans cannellini or other white beans, rinsed and drained 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

How to Make It

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2
Remove and discard giblets and neck from chicken. Trim excess fat. Cut chicken into 2 breast halves, 2 drumsticks, and 2 thighs. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook bacon in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; chop and set aside, reserving drippings in pan. Add chicken pieces to reserved drippings in pan; cook for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from pan; set aside.

Step 3
Add onion and 1/8 teaspoon salt to pan; reduce heat to medium, and cook 5 minutes or until onion begins to brown. Stir in bacon, spinach, rosemary, beans, and tomatoes; remove from heat. Arrange chicken pieces on top; bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40 minutes. Discard skin before serving.
