I hear from a lot of family and friends that they just don’t feel comfortable in the kitchen. Which is odd to me, because the kitchen is my comfort place. The heat of the stove and a glass of wine in hand just lead me to my zen after a long day of work.

The reasons I’ve heard for not feeling comfortable in the kitchen vary:

  • “I’m not a good cook.”
  • “My family won’t like it.”
  • “It takes too long.”
  • “Recipes confuse me.”
  • “I hate doing dishes.”

I’m certain that with this recipe for One Skillet Chicken with White Wine Sauce in hand, you can vanish all those thoughts from your head. Why?

  • It’s super easy – Even a novice cook can master this recipe.
  • Everyone loves this dish – Chicken, bacon, cream sauce – It’s a crowd pleaser!
  • Just 30 minutes is all it takes to make this yummy dish.
  • As mentioned before – It’s EASY!
  • It all cooks together in one-skillet. Meaning less dirty dishes.

I’m calling this dish the New Comfort Food – Food that lets you get comfortable with cooking.

While the traditional meaning of comfort food was rich, heavy dishes, like Macaroni and Cheese, Short Ribs, or Osso Buco, there’s no reason that we can’t define comfort food in a new way. I want all you non-believers out there to give this one a shot. Turn on some music, pour a glass of Chardonnay (it’ll go perfectly with the amazing dish you’re about to prepare), and heat that skillet to medium-high.

When you’re cooking a simple dish, it’s important to use high-quality ingredients, that will really shine through. Of course, the chicken is the star of this dish. I’m using free-range boneless, skin-on chicken thighs. However, feel free to substitute in your favorite cut of chicken – Boneless, skinless, chicken breasts work equally as well in this recipe.

So, all of you non-believers out there… I promise this recipe will be an instant ego-boost in the kitchen. Promise. It’s time to get comfortable in the kitchen. The wine helps… Just serve this simple dinner up with some white rice and a peppery green salad and you’re good to go.

  • In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup Dijon, paprika, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Rub the mixture onto your chicken thighs and set aside.
  • Chop the bacon and add it to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Allow to become browned and crispy, and then removed with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain half the grease from the skillet.
  • To the skillet, add the chicken. Allow to cook for approximately 4-5 minutes per side, until browned. Remove from skillet and set aside with the bacon.
  • Pour the wine into the skillet and scrape up any golden bits with a wooden spoon. Add the remaining Dijon, whole grain mustard, and sour cream. Return the bacon and chicken to the skillet and top with sprigs of fresh thyme.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover the skillet, and allow to cook for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

  1. Yeah, the dishes is always a negative in cooking (the other is a lot of prep- standing there cleaning and cutting all the ingredients before even getting to the cooking!), so love that this is a one skillet dish and not much prep!!

  2. i made this tonight for dinner and omg so so so delish! my 7 year old who doesnt like most things devoured this dish! i made it with chicken breasts because i grabbed breasts instead of thighs and it turned out amazing! cant wait to try this with thighs next! this one is a keeper! excellent job!

  3. 5 stars
    I didn’t quite have the correct ingredients but was determined to make a version of this divine looking dish – ie pancetta lardons in lieu of bacon, sour cream/used double cream, Dijon /used mostly whole grain and dash of English mustard, instead of chick thighs/used free range chick breasts cut into large chunks and wine /organic Pinot Grigio – added some chestnut mushrooms at the bacon stage for extra veg and served with a daphinoise potatoes – OMG. This is going in my weekly meal planner and my entertaining friends recipes…..and a recipe that I’ll trust my husband will be confident to make too! Sooooo yummy – THANKYOU!! :)))!

    • Ooohhh – Your tweaks sound absolutely fantastic and so delicious. I love that you threw mushrooms into the mix. I will need to try that next time!

  4. 5 stars
    Wanted a dish to go with a Saumur chenin blanc. Had to research how to de-bone skin-on thighs, but OMG was this worth it! Forced myself to share some of my lovely wine with the poor bird and glad I did. This was among the most delicious food + wine pairings I’ve had in quite a while.
