In a large dutch oven, brown bacon. Set cooked bacon on paper towels, leaving the drippings behind in the pan.
Add onions to the pot. Add salt and pepper to the chicken and place skin-side down in the pan. Brown the chicken and add the garlic.
Add the chicken stock, wine, bay leaves, thyme and bacon. Simmer until chicken is cooked thoroughly (about 20 minutes).
Place chicken and onion on a plate and remove the bay leaves and garlic and discard. Add the mushrooms to the liquid and turn heat up to high, reducing the liquid until it is thick. Lower the heat, stir in butter. Return the chicken and onion and coat with the sauce and serve.
