Chicken and Shrimp with Mustard, Bacon, and White Wine Sauce

How ya’ll doin’ tonight? Not sure how to describe this bad boy. Creamy, smoky, mustardy and succulent. I have been thinking of combining these ingredients for quite sometime. Whole grain mustard, bacon, white wine…awesome combo! I was thawing some chicken thighs today and have been thinking of this dish all day. So here is how I put it together…

Chicken and Shrimp with Mustard, Bacon, and White Wine Sauce


6-8 pieces of bacon
1 onion chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
6-8 red potatoes (yellow or fingerling can substitute) Chopped in even small pieces. Depending on the size of your potato, I would say in quarters or 6ths.
1 heaping tablespoon stone ground mustard
3-4 Chicken thighs
1/2 pound- 1 pound of raw shrimp (anywhere from 10-20 shrimp depending on size.
a few tablespoons of white wine (can substitute with chicken or seafood stock)
2 tablespoons heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste


In a large cast skillet or pan (cast iron or dutch oven)…
Cook your bacon. Take out and place on a paper towel to cool.
Brown chicken in your bacon grease. Take out chicken.
Add in your onions and potatoes. Cook and stir occasionally for 10-15 minutes. Add in your mustard. Stir for 5 minutes. Add in your wine/stock and reduce for 5 minutes.
Chop your cooled chicken. Add back in your chicken. Cook for 10 minutes.
Chop your cooled bacon. Add in your raw shrimp, chopped bacon, and heavy cream. Cook and stir just occasionally under 10 minutes- when until your shrimp curls and turns pink.
Done =)
