Sour Cream and Bacon Chicken

Sour cream, bacon and chicken.
Three wonderful ingredients. Especially when paired together. Philip and I really enjoyed this dish and know that you will too.
Thank you to Moms with Crockpots for this delish addition to our menu planning!
*This recipe was initially a crockpot recipe, but I made it into a make-and-eat recipe. For directions on how to crockpot this meal, click here.
Ingredients
  • 3 bacon slices
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon flour
    3 tablespoons butter
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    1/2 cup milk
    salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 Cup sour cream

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cook bacon in a skillet until brown and starting to crisp. Do not cook until crispy. Cut chicken breasts into 3 pieces. Wrap each piece with half of a bacon slice. *When I first made this, I made it with 6 slices, one per chicken piece and it was a little too bacon-y for my taste. Philip loved it. If you are a bacon lover, go for 6 pieces, otherwise i would stick to half a slice per chicken piece*

Place in oven-safe dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.

Yum!

While chicken is baking, melt 3T of butter in a small sauce pan. Add flour and whisk until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and add chicken broth and milk. Return to heat and continue whisking. Bring to simmer. Add sour cream and whisk until combined.

Serve chicken with rice, potatoes, quinoa, etc.
