Grandma's Smothered Chicken

This smothered chicken is a little bit different than most smothered chicken recipes I have seen, but this is how grandma always made it. It is delicious! Looking at the ingredients, I also believe it is low-carb! - I am an on-again, off-again Dr. Atkins devotee. This "diet" does work, I just give up too soon when the carb cravings get too strong!
This dish has all of "the good stuff" - bacon, cheese, mushrooms... mmmm!


boneless, skinless, chicken breasts halves
garlic powder to taste
seasoned salt to taste
1 Tbsp
vegetable oil
1 jar(s)
(4.5 oz) buttery sliced mushrooms, drained
1/2 c
jack cheese, grated
1/2 c
cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c
green onions, chopped
1/2 c
crumbled bacon
1 can(s)
chicken broth

Directions Step-By-Step

Flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle with garlic powder and seasoned salt.
In a large, non-stick skillet brown chicken in oil for about 4 minutes on each side. Top with the mushrooms, cheese, green onions and bacon. Pour over about a half can of chicken broth.
Cover and continue cooking until chicken juices run clear and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. If chicken seems dry or you like more liquid, add part or all of remaining broth, until heated. Enjoy!

Thanks Jennifer, I'm glad you like it! Every time someone likes one of grandma's recipes I let her know, and it really pleases her. She is 101 (and a half, she always says) years old now, doesn't cook anymore, but still likes to eat and talk about food!

Well, I guess I'll just have to resign myself to using my (somewhat lax) willpower, to resist carbs:)!
