I have a confession to make, there are two things I will never be… at least not any time soon:
1) Solely a fashion blogger
2) Solely a food blogger
I just can’t take pictures to save my life! And nothing is worse than having a delicious meal and then not being able to take an attractive picture of it. Ex: this Party Chicken
So with that caveat in mind, I bring you the tastiest chicken I’ve ever made* (as proclaimed by the boyfriend). The pictures below were the best of the almost 50 that I took… so just allow your imagination to work a bit.
This baby has 3 different kinds of meat (chicken, chipped beef, and BACON!) and a cream sauce all in one. Yes, it’s literally heaven! And if you have a man (brother, husband, boyfriend, roommate, random man friend) they will DEVOUR THIS (assuming they love meat)!
No, this is not a healthy dish “per say”, but I did use all reduced fat and low sodium items if that counts at all :) I mean, sometimes you just need a hearty meal on a cold Fall evening.
I cannot take credit for this recipe though. It was my mothers, handed down from her mother. It took my mom three weeks to send it to me… maybe she was just trying to keep it a secret? Either way (after calls, texts, and emails hounding her to cough it up) I got it! And the good news is I’m sharing the recipe with you!
Are you ready for a three meat, party chicken? I thought so!
- 6 chicken breasts (washed and dried)
- 12 pieces of bacon
- One package of chipped beef (I found mine in the deli meat section)
- One can of reduced fat cream of mushroom soup
- One cup of reduced fat sour cream
- 1/4 cup milk
- Start to butterfly the chicken breast, but stop about 3/4 of the way through.
- Stuff the breast with two pieces of chipped beef.
- Wrap the breast in bacon (about 2 pieces per breast) and place as one layer in a greased casserole dish.
- In a bowl, mix together the mushroom soup, sour cream, and milk
- Pour over chicken and pop it in the oven for 60 minutes at 350
- Make sure the chicken is fully cooked through and take out of oven. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow for the sauce to thicken a bit.
- I paired mine with a bed of brown rice and spinach, but you can really put this with anything you want!
