Chicken Stuffed With Mushrooms

I love chicken, done any way, and with bacon it can only be good! The creaminess of the mushrooms and the saltiness of the bacon makes this dish of Chicken Stuffed With Mushrooms perfect in my mind. The photograph really does not do this meal any justice. If you are reading this blog post I can tell you that the photograph was taken with a cell phone. It was at a time when I did not think that the picture mattered that much. To me it was all about the recipe. I was trying to blog every day. Which is really impossible when you have a full time job. Dinner at our house is usually this simple during the week because of work. I like to be fancy without being complicated. Chicken is therefore a good go to meal for us. And as I always have bacon in the fridge as well as mushrooms, this dinner was a natural progression for me. I love the contrast of the crispy bacon with the soft mushrooms. And as long as your chicken is moist, this meal is a winning dish.

  1. Used the ingredients recipe, but once wrapped in bacon, seal the ends of the cling film with the chicken & bacon inside by rolling and holding each end of the cling film, and cooked in a pan of hot water for 20 minutes. Then crisped up the bacon in a frying pan with a knob of butter a table spoon of oil. Yum!
