Here’s a recipe that will make it easy to abide by the Chick-Fil-A slogan to “eat more chicken.”
Chicken with a Mustard/Bacon Sauce
1/3 cup of Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon of paprika
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of pepper
8 strips of bacon, uncooked and chopped
1 cup of chopped onion
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
3 chicken breasts (boneless and skinless)
1-1/2 cups of chicken broth
1. Combine the mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Spread mixture evenly over both sides of the breasts and set aside.
2. In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon on medium-high heat until it starts to brown. Remove the bacon to a plate. Add your chopped onion to the bacon grease and cook until softened. Remove from the pan.
3. Add 1 Tablespoon of oil to the hot skillet and cook the mustard-smeared chicken on medium heat for about 1-1/2 minutes per side. Remove the chicken (it won’t be done, but will continue to cook in a later phase of the recipe).
4. Add the chicken broth to the skillet and scrape the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil. Add back the bacon and the onions and mix well. Add the chicken breasts back to the skillet and reduce the heat to low-medium and cook for about 15-20 minutes (turning the chicken once), or until the chicken breasts are fully cooked.
Serve with wild rice and your choice of vegetable (I use my carrots au gratin recipe and freshly steamed broccoli).
