  2. In medium skillet over medium heat, place bacon and cook until crisp, about 3 minutes.
  3. *(My way of cooking bacon is to roast it in a 400ºF oven, for about 15-20 minutes until the bacon is crispy. Lay on paper-towel lined plate and allow to cool.)*
  4. Add onion and garlic; cook until very soft and sweet, about 8 minutes.
  5. Stir in mustard, cream and white wine. Add crumbled bacon pieces. Taste for seasoning.

  7. Spoon mustard sauce over chicken; sprinkle with chopped thyme.
