For this one, cook the thighs separately to enjoy more of their flavor. In fact, use the same skillet with the drippings and aromas left from the previous ingredients – bacon, veggies, and chicken. This way, you’ll get a bunch of beautifully mixing flavors. Then just add white wine, mustard, and yogurt for the final round.

How to Make White Wine Chicken Thighs and Lentils

  1. For the bacon: Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook and stir until crisp. Transfer them on a paper towel.
  2. For the veggies: Using the same skillet, add the olive oil, onion, carrot, and shallot. Cook and stir for 5 minutes, then transfer to a bowl.
