Everything is better with bacon, right?
Cook 4 strips of bacon until crisp. Again, use an iron skillet. Take the bacon out and set it aside. You really only need 2 or 3 pieces of the bacon, but I figured you'd want to munch on at least one. Dredge chicken pieces in flour, salt and pepper. I use cut breast pieces; no skin. When you have browned the chicken pieces, set them aside with your bacon.
Back to the pan: sauté shallots, garlic and mushrooms. Add thyme when the veggies are done. Add cooking wine and beef stock to the pan. Return chicken to the pan and crumble the bacon in. (providing you haven't actually eaten it all)
Cook until the chicken is done. You may also want to thicken this broth before you serve it.
