Oh the Deliciousness of Bacon


Okay, this meal was soooo delicious. You know you want some. I mean seriously. Just look at it.

This is one of our favorite meals, because the chicken always has sooo much flavor, none of that dry stuff.

I made it last night (John cut and steamed the potatoes), and we were in food heaven as we ate.

Oh you want the recipe? Okay, here it is:

Bacon & Rosemary Chicken (Courtesy of Simple & Delicious)
  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 bacon strips, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced/minced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh rosemary, or 1 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
Flatten chicken breasts to an even thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place flour in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken breasts, one at a time, and shake to coat.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to a paper towel with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 2 Tbsp. drippings. cook chicken in butter and reserved drippings for 4-6 minutes on each side or until meat thermometer reads 170. Remove and keep warm.

Add the garlic, rosemary, and pepper flakes to the skillet; cook for 1 minute. Add broth and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced by half. Return chicken and bacon to skillet, heat through.

My Red Potatoes Recipe (courtesy of yours truly)
  • Red Potatoes halved or in fourths
  • A Scoop of Sour Cream
  • A dash of Garlic Powder
  • A few dashes of parsley
  • Some butter
Boil or steam the potatoes, when they are nice and soft, drain them and put them in a bowl. Add butter, sour cream, garlic powder, and parsley. Mix ingredients around and then enjoy!

Sorry, I don't have specific measurements, just put in however much you think you'll like.

And don't forget to enjoy it with an IBC Cream Soda! :)
