Gottcha!! Country Club Chicken that is…..bacon, onions, mushrooms, apples too! Mix in a little white wine and sharp cheddar cheese and you’ve got a fantastic meal!
If you can believe this, I don’t have anything specific to chat about today! We’re rolling into the school year with our grandchildren, schedules and routines will start slipping into place as they all begin their fall activities and interests. In fact, Joshua’s first football game will be played this Sunday, Papa and I love watching the kids play flag football, it’s so much fun.
I have nothing special planned for today; maybe run a few errands and work on a little writing. I have a couple of pre-ordered candy bouquets I need to gather material for so I’m not running last-minute and as I do every day, hit the job boards to see what new jobs are posted out there.
With that said….today we’re just going to slide right into the recipe…..I found this recipe on Pinterest, which lead me to KAYOTIC KITCHEN http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/country-club-chicken, originally posted December 12, 2011.
1 pound spaghetti (I only used 1/2 lb)
4 chicken breasts 1 large onion
7 oz mushrooms (I used 8 oz. already cleaned and pre-sliced)
2 can concentrated cream of mushroom soup
4 or 5 slices bacon
1/4 cup dry white wine
2/3 cup sharp cheddar (I used 1 cup)
butter or oil
salt & pepper
Mince the onion.
Clean and slice the mushrooms. (Unless you do what I did and buy them cleaned and sliced)
Peel and mince the apple (or wash it well)
Season the chicken breasts with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
Cook the bacon and don’t clean out the pan
Drain the bacon on a paper napkin
Add a bit of butter and quickly brown the chicken breasts on both sides. Transfer them to a casserole.
Cook the onions until opaque (1-3 minutes)
And add the mushrooms – Cook 3 minutes
Add the minced apple and cook it all for another 3 to 4 minutes
Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and crumble the bacon in there
Pour in the white wine
Note: If you don’t like wine try chicken broth
Add the soup
Add Sharp Cheddar Cheese – I added 1 cup
Mix all together until bubbly and cheese is melted
And pour it all over the chicken breasts
Put the casserole in a preheated oven at 350F (175C) for 25 to 30 minutes
until the chicken is super tender and the sauce is all hot and bubbly
Cook the spaghetti according to the directions on your package
Serve chicken breast with sauce over spahetti noodles
