  1. Combine flour and dry soup mix in a plastic bag. Add 1/2 of the chicken and shake to coat. Reserve remaining flour mixture.

  2. Heat 1/2 of the canola oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 of the coated chicken and cook until brown all over and no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining coated chicken, then uncoated chicken, working in batches if needed.

  3. Add onion and bacon, cook until onion is soft and bacon is crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Blend remaining flour mixture with water and add to the pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes more. Stir in sour cream until blended, then swirl in parsley.
