What a rich chicken dish combining the mildness of the chicken with the saltiness of the beef, surrounded in the creamy sauce of cream cheese, sour cream and cream of mushroom soup...Decadent! Serve the sauce over rice, pasta, or noodles...whatever is your fancy!

This is one of my family's long-time favorite "company" meals. We use eight chicken breast halves, rolled up, and wrapped with two pieces of bacon each. The gravy mix is one can of cream of mushroom soup, a 16-oz. carton of sour cream, and a double handful of chopped Portobello mushrooms. It goes in the oven covered at 300 d for 2 hours, then uncovered for 1 hour. I usually sprinkle some grated cheese over the top during the last 5 minutes. The long slow cooking time really fuses the flavors. I can't wait to try this with cream cheese and paprika. Thanks for sharing!

ok i hate to be the only person who did not love this, but it was not well recieved at my house at all. I made myself eat mine, i thought the bacon was rubbery, i like crispy bacon, just reminded me of being undercooked even though im sure it wasnt. My youngest son, who is 10, wouldn't touch it and my 13 year old ate some, but didn't finish his either. Both said do not make it again. Leftovers went into garbage. Sorry, but just wasnt appealing at all.

I love this recipe- I've made it for several years now - I don't like rubbery bacon either but I make mine alittle different- I cut up my bacon and sauté it in a skillet then add the cream of chicken soup/cream cheese mixgure to it and spread over the chicken w / dried beef underneath - cover and bake- the bacon gets in every bite and it's cooked well-
