Recipe by S_Mama0608
I was searching for a recipe that used chicken and bacon and was saucy. I couldn't find anything on Zaar, but a couple of the recipes that I found gave me ideas and this recipe is the result. I used a larger dish than a 9 x 13, but I am sure it would fit. This would the perfect meal for entertaining or as a comfort food. I hope you enjoy it!

This is very good! I did have to modify a bit because my pantry is just sorry right now... I cut the recipe in half to serve our family of 4 knowing the kids probably wouldn't eat any, and I was right... but there was still a TON of this left, as it makes a lot. I used onion powder rather than shallots, one can of mushroom and one can of chicken soup (store brand worked fine), and some skim milk rather than evaporated. I didn't realize I was out of spaghetti until it was too late, so I made some macaroni noodles and stirred them into the sauce and baked it all together like a casserole. A really tasty, creamy, yummy casserole! I'm sure it's just as wonderful made according to the recipe, but my husband has asked that I make it like this again, so I think it's a keeper! Thank you for sharing.
- 8 boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced into bite size pieces
- 1 lb bacon, sliced into approx. 1/2 inch pieces
- 2 large shallots, diced
- 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup (I prefer Campbell's because I think it is creamier)
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 12 ounces sour cream
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese

- Fry bacon in a skillet on medium heat until done then drain, reserving bacon grease. Set aside in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

- Saute shallots in 2 teaspoons bacon grease until transparent, then add to bacon and chicken mixture.
- Mix well and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all cans of soup, evaporated milk, and sour cream.
- Whisk until it has a smooth texture and no lumps of soup.
- Stir in garlic powder, pepper, basil, and Parmesan cheese and mix until well blended.
- Pour the soup mixture over the meat and shallot mixture.
