Chicken With Bacon and Wine


It has been ages since I posted any recipes, so I am going to do a giant catch up. I researched a bunch or recipes that friends could bring post pregnancy and figured I would share the ones we got and I liked. Here is the first...

Chicken With Bacon and Wine

  • 4 to 5 chicken breasts & thighs
  • 8 bacon slices, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced green onions
  • 8 small white onions peeled
  • 8 ounces small whole mushrooms
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • chopped parsley, for garnish
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons each, water and corn starch, optional

PREPARATION:

In large skillet, sauté diced bacon and green onions until bacon is crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Add chicken pieces to skillet and brown well on all sides. Remove browned chicken and set aside.

Put onions, mushrooms and garlic in crockpot. Add browned chicken pieces, bacon, green onions, salt, pepper, thyme, and chicken broth. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours, or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Add the wine about 1 hour before done. Remove chicken pieces to serving platter. If desired, thicken juices with a combination of 1 to 2 tablespoons each corn starch and cold water. Arrange vegetables around chicken and pour juices over all. Garnish with chopped parsley.
