Make dinner memorable! Finish with a clean Crème Brûlée.
- In a large resealable bag, combine chicken and wine. Seal bag, squeezing out as much air as possible, and set aside in refrigerator to marinate for 12 to 48 hours. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade, and pat pieces dry. Set aside.
- In a Dutch oven, braising pan or large skillet with a tight-fitting lid, heat 1 tbsp oil on medium-low. Add bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 4 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a large plate and set aside.
- Add remaining 1 tbsp oil to pan and heat on medium-high. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with pepper and salt. Working in batches, add chicken to pan and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to plate with bacon.
- To pan, add onions, celery and carrot and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes (if pan is getting too brown, lower heat to medium). Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle in flour, stirring until evenly incorporated. Add marinade and scrape up any browned bits in pan with a spoon. Stir in broth, thyme, parsley sprigs and bay leaves.
- Return chicken and bacon to pan, nestling chicken into liquid. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
- Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken and vegetables to plates or a platter, discarding parsley and thyme sprigs. Season sauce with additional salt and pepper and spoon a little over the chicken. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve remaining sauce at the table.
