Studded with bacon and bathed in a cream sauce, this one-pot dinner hits all the right notes--including easy clean-up.


  • 3 slices bacon, cut crosswise into ½-inch pieces

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken-breast halves (3 pounds), halved

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 8 ounces button mushrooms (halved, if large), trimmed

  • 8 ounces shallots, halved (quartered, if large) and peeled

  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 8 ounces egg noodles (5 cups)

  • cup chopped fresh dill, plus more for serving


  1. Cook bacon in a braiser pan or large skillet over medium until browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Discard fat from pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in pan over medium-high. Add chicken, skin-side down; cook, turning a few times, until browned all over, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  2. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium. Add mushrooms and shallots; season with salt. Cook, stirring and scraping up browned bits, until golden brown in places, 8 to 10 minutes. Add broth and cream; bring to a boil. Stir in noodles. Add chicken, skin-side up, and accumulated juices to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring once halfway through, until chicken is just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Uncover; simmer until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in dill and top with bacon. Serve, with more dill.
