1 In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.

4 Keep the skillet on the stove top, reduce the heat to medium and sautee the red onion, garlic and a bit of the chicken stock for 3 minutes or until they’re brown.
5 Add in the remaining chicken stock, 1 sprig of rosemary and ½ of the bacon and combine well.
6 Place the browned chicken thighs into the skillet and simmer, covered for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F.
7 Remove the chicken from the pan, add in the heavy cream and remaining rosemary and bring to a boil while stirring well. Once it’s well combined, add the chicken and simmer for 5 minutes covered.
