  • 2  tablespoons  vegetable oil
  •  Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  butter
  • 3  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4  cups  Pinot noir or Burgundy wine
  • 1/4  cup  chicken broth or water
  • 1  cup  whole fresh mushrooms
  • 2  medium  carrots, very thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 18  frozen small whole onions, thawed (2/3 cup)
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  snipped fresh marjoram or 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 2  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 2  slices  bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  •  Snipped fresh parsley (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In an extra-large skillet, cook chicken, half at a time, in hot oil over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until brown, turning occasionally. Transfer chicken to a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Set aside.

2. In the same skillet, cook butter over medium heat until melted. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in wine and broth. Cook and stir until mixture comes to boiling. Cut any large mushrooms in half. Stir mushrooms, carrots, onions, marjoram, thyme, and garlic into wine mixture. Return just to boiling. Pour vegetable mixture over chicken.

3. Bake, covered, about 45 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (180 degrees F). Transfer chicken and vegetable mixture to a serving platter. Top with bacon. If desired, sprinkle with parsley and serve with hot cooked noodles. Makes 6 servings.
