To make this yummy Creamy Bacon Chicken You’ll need the following ingredients:

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 strips bacon cut into small pieces
  • 2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
  • Flour for dredging
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cut the bacon up and add it to a skillet (I use kitchen shears to make this job quick). Fry it over medium-high heat until crispy (about 10 mins). Once the bacon is done, take it out of the pan and set it aside. Leave about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in the pan.
  • Meanwhile, prep your chicken (cut it in half lengthwise so you have 4 smaller cutlets). Sprinkle them with the garlic powder and pepper and then coat them in the flour.
  • Add the chicken to the skillet and cook it in the remaining bacon fat over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes/side or until it’s golden. If it starts to splatter a lot, reduce the heat. Once the chicken is browned, take it out of the pan and set it aside.
  • Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, and butter to the pan. Let it bubble until it’s reduced by half (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Stir in the cream and once it starts to bubble, add the chicken and bacon back into the pan. Cook for another 5 minutes or so until the chicken is fully cooked through and the sauce has reduced to your liking.
