Ingredients

  • 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 4 slices swiss cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 8 oz sliced -OR- button mushrooms fresh preferred
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken stock/broth
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

THICKENING

  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and place on a paper towel. Do not discard the bacon drippings. You should have about 2 tbs in the pan from the cooked bacon.
  • Brown chicken well on both sides over medium heat in the same pan in which you cooked the bacon. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, brown the onions and mushrooms (if you use canned, drain first).
  • Deglaze the pan with the chicken stock.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan, cover and reduce heat. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and keep warm while making the sauce.
  • Add the cream and increase the heat to medium and reduce liquid 25%--this should take about 5-8 minutes. If you want a thicker sauce, mix the flour and water and add to the pan, stirring until liquid is thickened. Add any salt and pepper at this point.
  • Place the chicken back in the pan and place a slice of swiss cheese over each piece of chicken.
  • Fold the cheese slices if they are too long.
  • Cover and cook over low heat until cheese melts--about 5 minutes.
  • Crumble bacon over each chicken breast.
