Chicken with Bacon, Mushrooms and Onions

"I like this served with mashed potatoes, but you could serve it with noodles or rice as well. A green salad makes a great side dish."

  1. This is one of my all time favorite dishes. It MUST be served with mashed potatoes and I prefer sliced onions to the pearl onions. Wish I could give it more than 5 stars!
  2. This was great, lovely flavours. Only change I made was to use fresh chopped onion. I used this recipe as a pie filling and it got the thumbs up from the entire family.
  3. This was wonderful! I served with mashed potatoes and a fresh veggie. The only change I would make is that I would use boneless breasts and thighs (would still leave the skin on), as the meat is so tender after cooking for so long that some of the smaller bones fell off the pieces and we had to sort through eating some of it. Otherwise, it was a wonderful dish! Will definitely make again with revisions!
  4. the flavor was okay but the appearance of the chicken was almost like it was boiled with the skin on.I browned it first but after hours in the crockpot it was no longer browned . Very unappealing look to it. Even the crisp bacon became limp and fatty in the crockpot. Would not repeat this meal
  5. Made this before and forgot to save it. It was so good that I just spent an hour searching again. I don't have frozen onions so I just use fresh. I much prefer with white wine. Delicious with mashed potatoes.
