  • 1
    Heat 5-quart Dutch oven over medium heat. Add bacon; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined plate; reserve. Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings in Dutch oven; discard the rest.
  • 2
    Season chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper. Add to Dutch oven; cook 8 to 9 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove and reserve. Add onions, mushrooms and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to Dutch oven, and stir to coat; increase heat to medium-high, and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until onions are just starting to brown.
  • 3
    Stir in garlic; cook about 1 minute or until garlic is fragrant. Add wine, stock and chicken; return to simmering. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until onions and mushrooms are tender. Remove chicken to serving platter; cover with foil.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix flour and softened butter; mash with fork to form a paste. Beat butter mixture into wine mixture in Dutch oven with whisk. Simmer about 3 minutes, beating constantly, until paste is completely dissolved and broth has thickened.
  • 5
    Spoon sauce and vegetables over chicken; garnish with bacon and parsley.
