Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Heat olive oil in a pan. Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the pan with a spoon and set aside, leaving the hot bacon grease in the pan (turn down the heat while prepping the chicken).
Step 3: Mix the flour with salt and pepper and the herbes de provence. Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour mixture and transfer to the hot pan. Pan-fry the chicken for a few minutes on each side, until golden brown (but not cooked through).Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside on plate.
Step 4: Add the shallots to the pan with the olive oil. Saute for 5-10 minutes, until softened and fragrant. Add mushrooms if you're adding them.Add the wine slowly, stirring to get all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the chicken stock and let everything cook until it reduces slightly, about 5-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Step 5: Put the chicken and bacon into a oven-proof baking dish and top with the pan sauce. Bake for 40 minutes, stopping every 10 or 15 minutes to baste the chicken with the pan sauce.Remove from oven when the chicken skin is crispy and the chicken is fully cooked.
Step 6: Boil water in stovetop sauce pan and cook Minute Rice of choice according to instructions.
Step 7: Serve Chicken with fluffy, white, Jasmine or brown Minute Rice, top with chopped or dried parsley and drizzle more sauce over. Yum!
One of my favourite edible concoctions is a savoury white wine sauce.
Paired with crispy-skinned chicken and, wait for it, BACON, seriously so heavenly!
Enjoy it with fluffy Minute Rice and it’s just perfection. Minute Rice® has made life a whole lot easier as it takes less time to cook than it does for me to make a cup of coffee sometimes. And it always turns out perfect! Just a tip: don’t skip out on the butter and salt. Not only does it make it taste better, it keeps is fluffy and the right texture longer!
