  • 4 Chicken Thighs skin on, bone-in
  • 6-8 Bacon Strips diced
  • 6-7 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 cups Button Mushrooms quartered
  • 2 Rosemary sprigs finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 3 tablespoons All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Whole Milk
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • In a bowl, add chicken thighs and season them with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Add diced bacon to a skillet or pan and cook till golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside, reserving bacon fat in the pan. Slide in the chicken thighs and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes till they are golden brown and the skin is crispy. Remove the chicken on a plate and set aside.
  • To the same pan add garlic and mushrooms and cook on medium high heat till the mushrooms are nice and golden. Cooking mushrooms on high heat keeps them nice and juicy.
  • Add the finely chopped rosemary to the pan along with butter and flour. Cook the flour for a minute and add milk slowly while whisking continuously. Bring this to a simmer while whisking till the sauce is thick and smooth.
  • Season the sauce with salt and pepper and add chicken and bacon to the pan. Cover and cook on a low flame for 25-30 minutes till the chicken is cooked through. If the sauce is too thick, whisk in a little more milk. Sprinkle with more bacon and serve.
