Everything's better with bacon, and even better with bourbon!  These 2 ingredients perfectly enhance the flavor of our onion soup for a chicken dish that's flavorful, delicious and super easy.  Noodles cook right in the sauce to soak up all of that delicious flavor.



cost per recipe: $8.69

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thigh
  • 8 slices bacon, diced
  • 1/4 cup bourbon or water
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed French Onion Soup
  • 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 8 ounces (about 3 1/2 cups) uncooked medium egg noodles
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  • Step 1

    Season the chicken as desired.  Cook the bacon in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes or until crisp.  Remove the bacon from the skillet.  Pour off all but 2 tablespoons drippings.

  • Step 2

    Increase the heat to medium-high.  Add the chicken to the drippings in the skillet and cook for 6 minutes or until well browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

  • Step 3

    Add the bourbon and cook for 1 minute or until reduced by half, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.  Stir in the soup, brown sugar and water and heat to a boil.  Stir in the noodles and half the bacon.  Return the chicken to the skillet.

  • Step 4

    Reduce the heat to medium.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.  Sprinkle with the remaining bacon and the parsley.

    Tried this for the first time tonight. Very flavorful, my wife loved it. She said I can make this anytime, and the sooner the better. I added a bit more bacon to the mix and seasoned the chicken thighs with a little S & P before browning. Used bourbon rather than water, the flavors mixed well. I left the lid on the Dutch oven during step 4 except for the last minute and a half to allow the sauce to thicken up up a little. This is a keeper!
