  • 24 oz Chicken Thigh, boneless, with skin
  • 24 oz Chicken Breast Filet, with skin
  • 4 oz, raw (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 2 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
  • 1 medium Carrots
  • 1 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 2 each Garlic, clove
  • 16 fl oz Red Table Wine
  • 2 14.5 oz can Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 8 oz Mushroom Pieces and Stems
  • 1 each Bay leaves, dried
  • 3 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Parsley
  • 3/4 serving Atkins Flour Mix


Use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Flour Mix for this recipe.  You will need 1/4 cup.
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Spread 1/4 cup baking mix in a baking dish. Lightly coat chicken pieces, tapping to remove any excess.
  2. In a large stock pot (or Dutch oven) over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon, crumble and set aside. Add oil to remaining bacon fat in pot. Over medium-high heat, brown chicken pieces in batches to a rich golden color.  Dice onion, carrot and celery.  Remove chicken from pot, and add the onion, carrot and celery and sauté over medium heat for about 8 minutes, or until softened.
  3. Add minced garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds, until aroma is released. Pour in wine and increase heat to high. Boil wine until reduced to 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Return chicken and accumulated juices to pot. Pour in chicken broth and add mushrooms, bay leaf, thyme and parsley.
  4. Reduce heat to low, cover partially and simmer 45 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened. Remove bay leaf and serve with crumbled bacon.
