Boil the rice according to package instructions. Cut bacon and celery in pieces. Chop the onions and drain the spinach well.

Melt the fat in a frying pan and sizzle bacon, onions, celery and garlic on medium heat for 5 minutes. Blend in the spinach and simmer slowly for about 5 minutes. Flavour with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Stir together spinach mix and rice and put it in a greased, oven-proof pan. Put the chicken breasts on top. Mix sherry, melted fat and paprika. Brush the chicken and pour remaining mixture on top. Bake in the middle of the oven at 200C/gasmark 6 for 30 to 40 minutes until the chicken is done.
