For a taste of spring, pair fresh asparagus and bright green peas with crispy chicken thighs for an easy — but elegant — one pot meal. A dijon-white wine sauce and flecks of crunchy bacon complete this flavorful dish.


  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 dash cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup thick-cut bacon (diced, about two pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons shallots (diced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 pound asparagus (cut in half, ends trimmed)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter (at room temperature)
  • 4 tablespoons fresh herbs (minced, such as parsley or dill)
  • lemon slices (for serving, optional)

    1. Preheat over to 375 degrees F.
    2. Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and season with salt and black pepper. Set aside.
    3. In a heavy-bottomed, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook for 4-5 minutes, until crispy. Remove and let drain on paper towels. Carefully place chicken into bacon fat in skillet and sear until lightly browned on one side, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate; set aside and keep warm.
    4. Lower the heat and add in shallots and red pepper flakes; sauté for 2-3 minutes until softened slightly. Add the white wine, stirring and scraping all the bits from the bottom of the pan. Whisk in the Dijon mustard, then add the bacon, chicken broth, peas, asparagus, and lemon juice. Season with a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper, bring to a boil, and then add the chicken thighs back to the pan. Place in oven and bake for 15-18 minutes.
    5. Remove the chicken from the oven, add the butter, and swirl pan around. Garnish with minced herbs and lemon slices if you like. Serve with rice or buttered egg noodles.

    Very good. Lots of sauce - serve it with rice or noodles!

    This recipe worked PERFECTLY. I served it over cranberry wild rice and substituted the asparagus for broccoli. I also used canned peas over frozen. I wasn't expecting the wine sauce to be thick since it's not like a marsala or a gravy dish. It tasted even better the next day!

    This chicken is good! I read the reviews before I made it and added thickening. I’m glad I did. We had it with crusty bread instead of rice or noodles and I did not add the butter in the end step.

    It was fine. I had to make some substitutions like apple juice for white wine and chives for herbs. We will make it again.

    was delicious, but to make a denser sauce I coated the chicken with flour before frying.

    This recipe has good “bones;” but like others, found the sauce too thin. Next time I will make a roux before adding the peas and asparagus. Also, there should be mention to remove most of the bacon grease after browning the thighs. Pretty healthy dish with the lovely vegetables!

    Good flavor but peas and asparagus get overcooked. Next time I’ll add them mid back for less cooking time. Agree, sauce is very thin but using dill, very tasty

    Sauce way too thin & cook time on chicken is too low. Granted, we're in high elevation, but searing and baking chicken thigh 15-18 minutes??? Hello, Salmonella! It tasted okay, but just okay. Too bad; Was looking forward to this one for a while now.

    Chicken had good flavor but peas and asparagus turned a light green color which made the dish extremely unappealing. Sauce was way to thin and seemed greasy. I would never make this again!! Disgusting!

    Delicious! But the sauce was not thick enough for me, added cornstarch to thicken. I would cut back on the amount of liquid for next time.

    It was delicious. Chicken real tender and with the sauce. I used dill instead and it gave it that extra flavor that made it YUMMY.

    This was so easy and delicious! I used dill instead of parsley and it did not disappoint. Will definitely make again!

    Didn't realized it wasn't bone-in thighs so revamped the recipe a little. Used all dill at the end. It was the bomb!

    This recipe was absolutely delicious! My hubby and brother loved it and mopped their plates clean. Will definitely be making this again!
