I've got an old favorite here, should work with Riesling. It's a bit of
a more pragmatic family-style recipe.


2 sweet onions
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 chicken, cut and deboned
1/2 cup sifted flour
6 slices thick country bacon, diced
1 tablespoon plugra or other tasty butter
8-12 crimini mushrooms, quartered
1 stick celery, chopped
2 tbsp parsley
1/2 bottle medium dry white wine
1 cup cream or yogurt

Coat chicken in salt, pepper and flour, then let dry for a few minutes
near the warm stove.

Brown the bacon in butter, then add garlic, and then onion, let simmer
until soft. Remove bacon, garlic and onions, add chicken and brown in
the juices.

Add celery and mushrooms, cook for ten minutes, then pour in wine and
cook for another ten to fifteen. Remove chicken.

To the boiling sauce, add cream/yogurt (I prefer the latter), parsley,
and black pepper to taste. Cook until it thickens to a saucelike

Return chicken to pan, heat and serve.


Some of this is from memory, and some from an illegible 3x5" card my
mother passed down from her mother, who apparently was a whiz at this
stuff. I'm just a weekend kitchen warrior, but I think the first
technical writer in the family was the grandmother who wrote the
original recipe :)
