This recipe got rave reviews and second and third helpings. I made some changes per the other cook's suggestions and a little tweaking of my own. I used Pinot Noir wine, which was a divine accompaniment. I cooked an entire package of bacon instead of using bacon bits, and did the initial skillet-sautéing of the chicken in the bacon rendering. I used a combination of chicken breasts and thighs and was able to simmer longer, so that the chicken was exceptionally moist. I did not use the parsley, herbs or bouillon below b/c I was out and forgot to buy at the grocery. I did sprinkle some "Mrs. Dash", though. I did not do the roux (flour/water mix). The chicken meat was falling off the thigh bones. The flavor was incredible and I felt so sophisticated making Julia Child's famous dish! I did not serve on top of rice or noodles, which I think is better for this dish. I served a side of sweet potato soufflé and served Banana Caramel Fluff for dessert.
