low-carb high-protein diabetic-friendly weight loss low-carbohydrate gluten-free grain-free paleo-friendly keto-friendly dairy-free sugar-free healthy flavorful savory French cuisine chicken recipe low-calorie low-sodium mushroom dish wine-infused guilt-free


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs

  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 1 cup dry red wine

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped bacon and cook until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside.

  2. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In the same skillet, brown the chicken thighs on both sides until they develop a golden color. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.

  4. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and start to brown, about 5 minutes.

  5. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for an additional minute, then add the red wine and chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

  6. Return the chicken thighs and bacon to the skillet. Add the fresh thyme leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover the skillet and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

  7. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the skillet and set it aside. Increase the heat to medium-high and simmer the sauce until it thickens slightly.

  8. Serve the chicken thighs with the sauce spooned over the top. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
