INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp butter
2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise

1 c. heavy/whipping cream

How to make Creamy Bacon Chicken

Step 1: After cutting the bacon, add them to a skillet and fry for about 10 minutes over medium-high heat until crispy. Set the bacon aside when done, leaving about 2 tbsp of the bacon fat in the pan.

Step 2: In half lengthwise, slice the chicken to make 4 smaller pieces and sprinkle with garlic powder and pepper. Now, coat the chicken slices in flour. To the skillet with the rest of the bacon fat, add the chicken, and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes per side over medium-high heat until golden. You can decrease the heat if the oil starts to splatter a lot. Set the chicken aside when done.

Step 3: To the pan, add the chicken broth, lemon juice, and butter. Allow it to simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes until reduced by half.

Step 4: Now, add the cream to the pan and stir. Once the mixture begins to bubble, return the chicken and bacon to the pan and continue to cook for additional 5 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has reduced to your preference.
