2 servings


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry French onion soup mix

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, chopped and divided, or more to taste

  • ¼ cup canola oil, divided

  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced

  • 3 slices bacon, sliced

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 4 small fresh mushrooms, sliced, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Combine flour and dry soup mix in a plastic bag. Add 1/2 of the chicken and shake to coat. Reserve remaining flour mixture.

  2. Heat 1/2 of the canola oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 of the coated chicken and cook until brown all over and no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining coated chicken, then uncoated chicken, working in batches if needed.

  3. Add onion and bacon; cook until onion is soft and bacon is crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Blend remaining flour mixture with water and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and let simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes more. Stir in sour cream until blended, then swirl in parsley.
