2Wrap each breast with a strip of bacon and secure with toothpicks. (For smaller servings cut breasts and bacon strips in half lengthwise, then wrap w/ cut bacon - depending on how hearty the eaters, this will make more servings)
3Spread halved chipped beef slices evenly over bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with wrapped chicken.
4Mix soup (+ mushrooms if using cream of mushroom soup) and sour cream and pour over chicken.
