Grandma's Smothered Chicken

Martha Price


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!
