How to Make It

Step 1

Cook bacon in a large pot over medium heat until crispy, about 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels and set aside.

Step 2

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add to pot in batches; cook over medium-high heat, flipping, until brown, about 7 minutes per batch. Set aside.

Step 3

Add onions, mushrooms, carrots and thyme to pot; cook over medium-high heat, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add broth and wine, bring to a boil, then simmer for 3 minutes. Return chicken to pot. Boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.

Step 4

In a bowl, whisk flour with 1 cup of hot liquid from pot until smooth. Whisk into pot; simmer over medium heat until thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; top with crumbled bacon.

Good Base Casserole Recipe

November 20, 2018
I added a few more herbs, more chicken stock, some tomato paste and more veggies but good base for a casserole. The bacon added good flavour

Flavorful Stew

May 15, 2016
This stew has good flavor, but I also put in the whole 3.4 oz. pkg. of fresh thyme so don't know what difference that might have made.  Next time I will skin the chicken as the crustiness really didn't last once the chicken is simmered with the stew.  I used a whole onion in place of the pearl onions, and I would add more carrots next time.
