Bacon Chicken Skillet Supper

Becky Pierce


I had 3 chicken breasts defrosted for supper and was planning on making chicken and rice. My hubby is not a big fan of that dish and asked me to make something else. I was limited on supplies, and looked thru my frig and pantry and came up with this wonderful dish! Everything is all I had of it on hand, so it worked out great! He and my daughter loved it!
