This morning when I went to work I took out a package of chicken, with NO idea what I would be doing with them. During the day I decided I wanted some kind of cream sauce, and mushrooms were sounding excellent. And this dish was created. I am SOOO proud of myself for creating this totally from scratch. Normally I find a couple different recipes and adapt to what I want, but this was totally from scratch.
As soon as Adam finished his plate he asked me when I would be making this again, I guess he kind of liked it!
This was an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G dish, it had wonderful flavor, not to creamy, not to balsamicy and too many flavors but just the right amount. You need to try this right away it is really good!
Chicken with Balsamic, Bacon, Mushroom Cream Sauce (From: Myself)
- 3 slices of bacon
- 2 chicken breasts (we used a thick one and butterflied it)
- 2 cups of cream
- 3 T. balsamic vinegar
- 1 pkg. baby bella mushrooms
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
- 3 T. of butter
Warm large pan with olive oil.
Salt and Pepper chicken breasts both sides, put into olive oil and brown on both sides until cooked through. Meanwhile add bacon slices to same pan and cook until desired tenderness.
Once bacon is done lay on paper plate with paper towels to get grease off. Once chicken is done set aside on a plate covering with foil to keep warm.
Drain oil from the pan, but leaving what is “stuck” to the bottom, add butter and let melt.
Once melted add garlic and mushrooms. Salt and pepper to your liking, let simmer for a 2-3 minutes then add balsamic vinegar. Cook until desired tenderness.
Pour in heavy cream and bring to a boil, boil for 3-5 minutes then add crumbled bacon.
Add chicken breasts and coat in sauce cook until desired thickness. Serve over pasta of your choice.
