Bacon Wrapped Smothered Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
I like serving this with honey mustard or bbq sauce. I also serve with a side of the red skinned potatoes that have been cooked with cheese and bacon. This is awesome!! It is such a fancy tasting meal that is really not at all expensive to make.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 slices thick cut bacon
1 cup sliced julienned bell peppers (I like red and green, but you can leave them off)
1 cup thinly sliced julienned onion(optional)
salt and pepper to taste
cajun seasoning or basic spices you prefer
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms(more if you love them like me)
2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup green onions diced fine
Pound chicken thin. Season liberally to your own taste. Wrap each chicken breast in bacon. I grill mine then on a George Forman for abour 3 minutes each, but I also like pan frying in a little butter.
Saute' onions and peppers until tender. Toss in mushrooms. Top with chicken and more mushrooms if you like. Turn skillet on low or simmer and cover until done. I top with shredded cheese about 10 minutes before serving and I also cover with a lid to let it melt.
