I had to make a couple of changes to this. I had bacon end strips, so wrapping really wasn't possible. I fried the bacon lightly to get some of the grease out, then browned the chicken in the bacon fat instead of butter. Then I laid the bacon slices on top of the chicken in the pan. My cream of mushroom was reduced fat (some nonsense that someone left in my pantry) and I had Greek yogurt in the house instead of sour cream. I added some Savory Steak Rub to the sauce for extra flavor. I baked the chicken at 425' to go with Herb-Roasted Vegetables. It was done in about 30 minutes, but the top of the sauce got a bit dried out. I probably wouldn't make this again, since I typically don't cook with cream soups, but it was pretty good.
Being a bachelor I needed something that was easy to cook, tasted excellent, while still looking like I knew what I was doing in the kitchen. This did the trick and I made it the night before so all I had to do was bake it on date night.
I placed some sliced mozzarella cheese on the chicken breasts and then wrapped the bacon around that. I omitted the mushroom soup. Instead, I sauteed fresh mushrooms & onions & added that to the sour cream, along with some garlic powder & paprika. I spooned the mixture over the chicken & bacon wraps & baked everything for an hour. Absolutely delicious!
I made this a stack roll, flattened the chicken breasts, thin processed ham slice, round slice of provolone cheese, precooked bacon wrapped around the breast and cream of chicken soup. Toasted English muffins topped with sliced tomatoes and covered with the gravy. The dinner is complete. Thanks for posting! It was done in 45 minutes.
This one was a hit! I added some swiss cheese into the roll up, lots of salt & pepper and baked for 45 minutes and it was delish. The sauce came out as a really nice gravy, and I served that over toasted english muffins. I ate the left overs for lunch today =) Thanks for posting!
This was very easy and good. However, next time I'm going to put cheese or ham or something else inside the chicken to flavor it more. Maybe adding more bacon would help too. I will make it again!
My husband and I liked it ok, but the kids weren't so easy to please, it was a little dry and bland.
Tried this the other night and it was delicious. I browned it really good until the bacon started to sizzle so it had good color before going into the oven. I'll make this one again and again, thanks so much for this keeper.
Delicious! I cooked it for 45 minutes and broiled for another 10 to give the bacon some nice color. I also used non-fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream. It is now the favorite in our house, it put the "20-Minute Chicken Creole" in second place, after almost 8 weeks!
Geat Recipe. My husband loved it. Will make again. I cooked it for 1 hours. Next time will only cook for about 45-50 min.--Sept 08,2005
