This creamy bacon chicken recipe is a decadent and delicious dinner that’s easy enough for a weeknight and tasty enough for company. It’s ready in about 30 minutes!
I probably don’t have to sell you too hard, but chicken with bacon and cream is a great combo! Even my cream-loathing husband said it was really tasty. The chicken is pan-fried to a golden brown on the outside and when you bite into it, it melts in your mouth. And the bacon… well it makes everything even better.
When you want comfort food (calories be damned… and no, I did not calculate them lol), this is your dish.
My sister (the vegetarian) actually came up with the idea for this recipe. She’s like “Is it true that I can’t find a creamy bacon chicken recipe on your site?” And I was like “hmmm…. there’s a creamy chicken bacon gnocchi recipe on my site, but you’re right”. And so this was born. This recipe is straight out of the Salt & Lavender playbook… I have a lot of creamy chicken recipes. I list them at the bottom of the post if you want to take a look.
