Drunken Chicken Stew

This is a meal that I recently created for myself. I’m typing up the recipe for anyone else who might be interested and also so that I have it again when I need/want it.



  • 1/2 lb. bacon
  • 2lbs. chicken
  • 1/2 bottle of wine
  • 5 cups of chicken broth
  • Two whole sweet potatoes
  • 10-12 white mushrooms
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. rosemary
  • 1-2 tsp. parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 2 bay leaves


  1. Cook the bacon in a saucepan.
  2. When the bacon is almost fully cooked, add the sliced onion to the saucepan and cook it with the bacon.
  3. Meanwhile, slice the mushrooms and the chicken. Put them in a large bowl with the wine. Set aside to soak for at least ten minutes.
  4. Put broth into a large stew pot and begin to cook on medium heat.
  5. Slice the sweet potatoes into chunks. Put in the large stew pot with the broth.
  6. Add the herbs to the pot.
  7. When the onions and bacon fully cooked, add them to the stew pot.
  8. When the chicken and mushrooms have soaked for at least 10 minutes, turn up the heat and add the chicken, mushrooms, and wine to the pot.
  9. Bring the pot to a boil. Then, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 30-40 minutes.
  10. Serve with bread.
