Do you and your family ever get bored with the same old chicken dinners?  Is that store-bought rotisserie chicken a little over-utilized at your house.  I’ll be the first one to say that as much as I love the ease of a Costco rotisserie chicken, it gets pretty boring fast!  At our house, we really love chicken, and have it often.  I decided that I needed to resurect one of my old chicken recipes – freshen it up, and enjoy chicken with some amazing flavor.  My Creamy Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms and Bacon is the perfect dinner solution to that same old, same old meal.

Smothered in a deliciously simple cream sauce with mushrooms, bacon and onions, these simple chicken breasts take on new life!  The savory bacon is sauteed along side the mushrooms and onions, and take on the delicious smokey flavors of the bacon.  The cream sauce is simply butter and flour, cooked for a couple minutes, then whisked with chicken broth and sour cream.  That’s it!!!

Ingredients

  • 3-4 medium sized boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 oz. fresh, sliced mushrooms (white or baby bella work well)
  • 4 slices of bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove, minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 1/4 c. chicken broth
  • 3/4 c. sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped bacon, and cook for 3-5 minutes until about half-way cooked. To the bacon, add the sliced mushrooms, onion and garlic. Sautee with the bacon for another 3-5 minutes. Remove from skillet and transfer to a bowl. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, over medium-high heat, add the chicken breasts that have been lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. Cook approximately 5-6 minutes per side. Cover the skillet with a well-fitting lid while chicken is cooking. Transfer the chicken to the bowl with the bacon-mushroom mixture and cover to keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet, add the butter, and melt over medium heat. Add the flour, and whisk to combine. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and continue whisking until the broth comes to a simmer and thickens. Add the sour cream and whisk to combine. Cook for 2 more minutes until thick and cream. Add the mushroom-bacon mixture to the sauce and stir. Add the cooked chicken and spoon the sauce over the chicken. Simmer for 1-2 minutes longer. Serve right away.
