I am very excited about today. Why? Well, because I've decided to start a weekly linky party here on HunWFD. Since I've been volunteering at school all day on Mondays, I've been on the search for Crock Pot recipes and quick and easy dinner recipes, for Monday dinners. So, I thought a linky party devoted to quick and easy recipes (including Crock Pot recipes) would be a great way to find awesome recipes all in one place!! So, I'd like to welcome you to the first ever Simple Supper Tuesday Linky Party!!
Last night's dinner was a wonderful Bacon Wrapped Sour Cream Chicken, which I served with pasta and broccoli. I found the idea for this when I was searching for Salsa Sour Cream Chicken, for a friend. You can find the original recipe here, but since the kids don't care for cream of mushroom soup, I made my own sauce. The sauce is very reminiscent of Stroganoff, since it contains both sour cream and dill. Creamy, salty, slightly smoky with a hint of dill, this chicken was out of this world!!
Bacon Wrapped Sour Cream Chicken
5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
10 slices of bacon
1 small shallot
1 C chicken stock
3/4 C sour cream
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1 Tbs finely chopped fresh dill
1/2 tsp sea salt
fresh ground pepper
In a large skillet, cook slices of bacon until brown, but not crisp (you should still be able to bend the bacon, without it breaking). Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Pour off rendered bacon fat, reserving 3 Tbs at the bottom of the pan. Heat over med low heat and add in shallots; cook until translucent. Add in cream and scape up all the yummy bits, from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickend. Stir in Dijon, sour cream, dill, salt and pepper.
Wrapped 2 slices of cooked bacon around each chicken breast and place in a 4 qt crock pot. Pour sour cream sauce over chicken and cook on the LOW setting for 6-8 hrs. Serve with pasta or rice, topped with sauce.
