Default Chicken with Mushrooms and Bacon

  • 4 slices bacon, diced(or more)
  • 1 frying chicken, 3 to 3 1/2 pounds, cut up
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, minced(or more)
  • 1 envelope Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine or chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme, crumbled

In a Dutch oven or large, heavy saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside. Add chicken to bacon drippings and brown over medium heat, turning several times to brown evenly. Remove chicken; set aside. In same Dutch oven, add mushrooms and garlic; cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 4 minutes. Return chicken and bacon to the pot, then add soup mix blended with water, wine or broth, and thyme. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 35 to 45 minutes or until chicken is done. This is good served over rice.

Trish, make your own dry onion soup mix, like I do.

4 tsp. beef granules (or crush up beef buillion cubes)
8 tsp. dried onion flakes
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. pepper

I don't see why you couldn't. The dried ones get rehydrated when mixed with the liquids so they'd be like "real onions", wouldn't they? lol I would add them with the mushrooms and garlic so they soften a bit. HTH

Default Re: Chicken with Mushrooms and Bacon

so I....

diced and fried up some bacon - removed from pan
browned the chicken in the fat - removed from pan
cooked the onions, garlic, mushrooms in the fat -removed from pan
deglazed the pan with beef broth and red wine
put everything back in and it's simmering nicely! Smells great!!!

I'll start the rice soon.

Thanks!!!!!

( might have doubled up on the garlic and the mushrooms and used a little less thyme)

That's ok, I very seldom do either. There is always something I have to add or take out or tweak to make it taste better to me! I'm just glad that you liked it.
