      Simplicity at its finest. So easy and impressive. I did have to simmer a bit longer to get the thighs cooked all the way through, but other than that, this recipe is fantastic!

      I found this in my quest to include more bacon in my diet (bacon improves the flavor of everything, but not everything improves the flavor of bacon). I ended up having to simmer for 25 minutes in order to get the chicken cooked all the way through, but this was tasty! Fontina, while too strong for my taste by itself, blended well with the rest of the flavors. I will definitely make this again!
