  • Add chicken to drippings in skillet; cook 2 to 3 min. on each side or until chicken is evenly browned on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet; set aside. Mix flour, water and dressing until blended. Add to skillet along with the tomatoes; mix well. Return chicken to skillet; spoon sauce over chicken. Add bay leaves. Bring to boil; simmer on medium heat 10 min., stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in bacon mixture; simmer 15 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF), stirring occasionally. Remove and discard bay leaves. Serve chicken mixture over rice; sprinkle with parsley.

Makeover - How We Did It

We've recreated this French classic to save you 280 calories and 31g of fat, including 16g of sat fat, per serving. The changes include decreasing the bacon and replacing the chicken pieces with chicken breasts. We also omitted the butter, chicken broth and wine. And good news - the recipe is still delicious!

Fun Idea

Serve topped with croutons or small toasted bread cubes.


Substitute 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves for the bay leaves.

    This was AWESOME! Had been smelling a professionally catered meal at the office (that I didn't get to share in)...had this at home, and it satisfied the desire for something "special." VERY TASTY, definitely a permanent fixture in my recipes. Used white rice, but otherwise unchanged.

    good (better) with boneless thighs for more chicken flavor. I have substituted Marsala wine for the vinegar with good results too.
