  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour & 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 skin-on bone-in chicken thighs (about 1.5 kg)
  • 1/2 cup diced thick-cut bacon or pancetta
  • 20 small button mushrooms , or 5 large button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 red onion , cut in wedges
  • Half lemon , cut in 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1 cup Riesling
  • 1 cup whipping cream (35%)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 large cloves garlic , minced
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 can (540 mL) no-salt-added cannellini or white beans , drained and rinsed

Method


Preheat oven to 400°F. Place chicken, skin side up, in roasting pan. Arrange bacon, mushrooms, red onion and lemon around chicken pieces; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast until bacon is crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.  

Meanwhile, in liquid measure, whisk together wine, cream, mustard and garlic.

Remove pan from oven; pour wine mixture around chicken (avoiding skin). Gently stir in thyme and beans; roast until sauce is thickened and chicken is browned, 30 to 40 minutes. Discard thyme; serve chicken over rice or couscous. 

Test Kitchen Tip: Mashing some of the beans with a fork will help create a thicker sauce.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
