Chicken Bacon Bake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by AshK

I made this up one day after my family went wild over the bacon wrapped cocktail weenies. I wanted something a little more figure friendly and so in waltzed the chicken. This WILL make your baking dish ugly, but it soaks away and I promise it is worth it.

I kept your basic recipe intact, but did make chgs to expand it. I had some onion, mushrooms & celery I needed to use ... so I sliced them & put them in the bottom of the baking dish. My chicken breasts were VERY LRG, so I sliced them in medallions, placed them atop the veggies & then finished as written. When cooked, I plated the bacon-topped chicken, pureed the veggies w/their liquid & the drippings from the chicken & bacon + enough cream cheese to create a lovely light cream sauce. The outcome was divine! The chicken was fork-tender, well-flavored & perfect w/the sauce. This got an enthusiastic 10* rating from DH & will definitely be repeated. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
