Chicken Braised with Bacon, Onions and Riesling

In this twist on a classic French recipe, Riesling is the foundation for the flavorful braising liquid, lending its fruitiness and subtle floral hints to the dish. A measure of cognac fortifies the sauce, while bacon adds a layer of smokiness. Small onions and carrots lend their aromatic qualities to help balance all the flavors.

It's a keeper!

I use a bag of pearl onions and a bag of mini carrots for the vegetables, and for the chicken, I use boneless skinless thighs or breasts, depending what is on sale. The peppered bacon, shallots, fresh thyme, and a nice bottle of white wine really make the dish. I don't usually have cognac in the house, so I skip that step. But I may need to buy some for the next time I make it. This is my new favorite dish to make for company!
Pros: Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Indulgent!
November 10, 2014
This was absolutely wonderful--could have eaten so much more if I didn't have self-control! It was not difficult to make, just a little involved. I used 2 3/4 lbs of chicken drumsticks and 1 lb of chicken thighs (bone-in) instead of cutting up a chicken. I didn't measure the salt or pepper, and at the end, I added the thyme to the pot instead of just on the chicken to serve. Otherwise, followed recipe exactly. Served with rosemary potatoes; would go very well with pasta, noodles, or rice, too.
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Unhealthy

Easy & Delicious

I substituted frozen pearl onions and bone-in chicken breasts. Wow! What a great meal! Will definitely make this again. The sauce is delicious. I served it with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.
Pros: Yield, Easy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again
