Hello crispy, saucy, delicious skillet chickaennn!
You guys, I’ve got to be honest with you. I’ve had some ups and downs with chicken over the last decade – okay okay okay fine, maybe it’s been mostly downs. But the good news today is that things are finally taking a beautifully crispy turn upwards. Cheers and applause! Maybe I do like chicken after all (read: bacon, white wine, shallots)?
This skillet chicken recipe is my new IT recipe — starting with the fact that it’s made entirely in one pan with small bite-sized pieces of salty bacon and sweet caramelized shallots, and ending with the fact that it’s going to have that golden, crispy chicken skin after the chicken is pan-fried a little bit before taking a nice oven-bath in the white wine pan sauce.
And will there be warm, crusty bread dipped in the white wine pan sauce in between bites of chicken? Yes.
