Martha's notes for this recipe:
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!
Make it Your Way...

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!

Sherri, I read somewhere that there is a Japanese(?) noodle which is very low in carbs, but I don't remember the name of them, or where to buy them. Have you (or anyone else out there) heard of these? Maybe if I could have some some good old (low carb) macaroni and cheese once in a while, I could rsist the bread! Maybe... :)
