I know I say, “Winner, winner, chicken dinner” fairly often. I can’t help myself, as much as I wish I could. But this one? WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER. It’s SO good. I mean, bacon, leeks, mushrooms, white cooking wine, cream…how do you go wrong? Ben loooooved this — seriously one of his favorites in awhile! It’s a classy dish without being snooty or hard to prepare. This white wine chicken is the kind of chicken recipe that will be a total crowd pleaser, unless you don’t like mushrooms. But if you don’t like mushrooms, I don’t want to associate with you.
Just kidding, I love all of you, no matter your opinion on mushrooms.
Best part is, it’s all made in one skillet. I told you I’d be coming strong with the one pan meals this month. Less dishes, more time to socialize with your guests. Or your family, because this meal transitions smoothly from entertaining to family dinners.
I love using wine when I cook because it adds such a sophisticated layer of flavor. It really kicks recipes up a notch and this recipe is no different. I used Holland House White Cooking Wine, which is the perfect addition to a cream sauce or to a chicken recipe. Or in this case, both! (Further proof, if you need it: This chicken and spinach pasta with lemon cream sauce.) You can, of course, use any of your favorite dry white wines for this white wine chicken. I’d avoid sweet wine in this recipe as it will alter the taste.
What to Pair with this White Wine Chicken
This recipe is fantastic paired with a green salad (try kale salad with pomegranate and orange or this salad with apples and cucumbers). You could serve it with a side of simple pasta. I think angel hair pasta with some butter, olive oil, and a ton of fresh herbs would be great served with this skillet chicken with mushrooms and white wine. Keep it simple, not only for your own sanity, but also to really let this chicken shine, because it certainly does just that.
PS: You cook the leeks in bacon grease. You’re welcome.
