  • Sauté bacon in a large pot over medium-high heat until crisp. Once crisp use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon and set aside.
  • Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and place in the pot with the bacon drippings. Briefly cook on all sides. Remove chicken and cut it into bite-sized pieces.
  • Add onion and potatoes to the same pot and sauté over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add chicken back to the pot.
  • Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in mustard and half-and-half. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Use an immersion blender and blend the soup until smooth. Add fresh dill and season to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle into soup bowls and sprinkle with crispy bacon.
