  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook manicotti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.

  • Place chicken and bay leaf into a saucepan and pour in enough water to cover; bring to a boil, cover saucepan, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Remove chicken from saucepan and place on a work surface to cool. Discard cooking water, skin, and bones. Finely chop chicken.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms, 1/3 cup chopped onion, salt, basil, thyme, and paprika until mushrooms are tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool.

  • Mix mushroom mixture, eggs, Parmesan cheese, and chicken together in a bowl.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12x7-inch baking dish.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir 1/4 cup chopped onion until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir flour into onion until dissolved; add milk. Cook and stir mixture until sauce is bubbling and thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir wine into sauce; add mozzarella cheese and stir until cheese is melted.

  • Stuff the cooked manicotti with chicken mixture and arrange filled pasta in the prepared baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over pasta. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
