I tried this recipe using all thighs (my favorite part). For the most part, I really like it, but, I think the bacon was overpowering. I'd use half the bacon and remove it before serving next time. I also tried a second version without the bacon, and added about 3 or 4 ounces of tomato paste. Loved it! My friend said, "you mean you discovered chicken cacciatori!"

I said, "Yes...yes, I did."

Yum! I made this in my pressure cooker to make the chicken extra tender (thighs) and added some asparagus (in season), heavy cream, and parmesan at the end. Delish!
