1 stick butter, divided
1 c all-purpose flour
6 slices bacon, diced
2 tsp garlic powder
2 lbs. chicken thighs, bone-in, and skin on
1 c milk
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
3 ½ c chicken broth
½ tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Put a large skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium.
Add the bacon, then cook until crispy and brown.
Transfer the bacon onto a clean plate lined with paper towels to drain excess fat.
In a mixing bowl, add paprika, flour, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir until blended.
Add the chicken thighs into the flour mixture, then toss until well coated.
In the same skillet where you cooked the bacon, add 1/2 of the butter and allow it to melt.
Add the chicken and cook each side for about 5 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
Remove the chicken thighs from the skillet onto a clean plate.
In the same skillet, add butter and allow it to melt.
Add about 1/2 cup of flour, then whisk and cook for about a minute to remove the raw taste.
Add the milk and chicken broth, then stir until well blended.
Add the chicken and bacon, then stir until well combined.
Allow the mixture to boil, then turn the heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
