This recipe is my first attempt at making a meal that I didn't just already know how to throw together or have a recipe for right in front of me...I was out of something I needed for everything I could think of to make for dinner, so I just started pulling things out of my fridge. This was the result, & my family all told me that I NEEDED to write this one down so I don't forget how to make it! We all loved it, & I will for sure be making it again.

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

3 or 4 large
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut into nugget size pieces
1/2 lb
bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 c
broccoli florets
1 small
onion, chopped
8 oz
cream cheese
2 can(s)
evaporated milk (small cans)
salt & pepper to taste
2 Tbsp
butter or marg.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large skillet (mine was cast iron) add butter, allowing to melt over med heat, then adding chopped onions & bacon pieces. Cook, stirring as needed, until bacon starts to get crispy (or however you prefer your bacon cooked).
2
Next, add chicken pieces, cook until the pieces turn white, stirring as needed. (I listed 3 to 4 large chicken breasts, mine were large, but we like chicken, so you can change this to be less if you prefer).
3
Turn heat to med-low, add broccoli florets. (I just dumped mine on top, no stirring) put lid on & let cook for 15 min.
4
Remove lid, stirring everything together. Lower heat to low. Add cream cheese, cutting into chunks so it melts better, & pour evaporated milk over everything. (I started with one small can, but decided I wanted it saucier, so I added the second can). Put lid on & let simmer for 10 to 15 min.
5
Add salt & pepper to taste. Serve over hot noodles or rice.
