4 servings


  • 4 slices bacon, chopped

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded flat

  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms

  • ¼ cup chopped green onions

  • 1 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 ½ cups white wine, or to taste

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar, or to taste

  • cup half-and-half


  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from skillet and drain on paper towel-lined plate.

  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil and butter in a separate skillet over medium heat. Once butter has melted, add chicken and cook until brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate.

  3. Place mushrooms and green onions in the skillet and saute until mushrooms are soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Add artichokes, garlic, and oregano and saute for 1 minute. Add bacon. Stir in wine and sugar and bring to a simmer. Cook until sauce reduces, 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Place chicken breasts in back in the sauce. Add half-and-half and simmer for 1 minute.

Cook's Note:

I prefer to use a California Viognier wine.
