Cooking Method

  1. Take a large frying pan, preferably one with a lid, and heat it over a medium heat. Take your butter and add it to the frying pan with your oil. Once combined, season your chicken, and add it to the pan making sure to brown both sides, Once cooked, remove from pan, and set aside. 
  2. Using the same pan, add your bacon and onions to the pan and cook until soft (usually 5-10 minutes). Once softened, stir in the garlic, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.   
  3. Add your white wine to the pan and let it bubble for a minute or so.  Stir in the cream and make sure the sauce is combined. Return the chicken to the pan, making sure it’s skin side down and cook the chicken in the sauce for 10 minutes.  
  4. Keep turning the chicken over to make sure its coated in the sauce and half-cover the pan, cooking for 5–10 minutes more to make sure the chicken is fully cooked through, and the sauce has reduced down to a thick consistency. 
    When cooked, add you final seasoning and serve it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chicken supreme is a wonderful cut of chicken breast that still has bone attached from the wing. Usually, chicken supreme still has the skin on making it a great cut of chicken for cooking as the skin gets crispy, especially if seasoned right.
Chicken supreme can be cooked with the bone in meaning you can still enjoy it and not have to prep it by removing the bone. In order to remove the bone, you will need a sharp knife and should try to cut around the bone rather than slicing it off and taking too much of the chicken breast.
A cooked chicken will last up to 4 days in the fridge making it perfect for meal prepping lunches or saving your leftovers for another meal. If storing leftover chicken, you need to let it cool and store within 2 hours of cooking in a container. If the chicken has been left out for longer than 2 hours, you should throw away the chicken.
