Smothered Chicken

This recipe really should have been shared with you all months ago, however, I had misplaced the photos and just found them again a few days ago. Oops! My sister in law made this yummy meal a few months ago and sent me the pics. She said it was a huge hit with her family and packed with flavor. My kind of meal for sure! When I saw the pics, I knew it was a must share recipe! Although I have not made this yet, I definitely will be making it soon!! Thanks Adriana!!



  • 1/2 cup Caesar salad dressing
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

  2. Cook bacon until crisp, remove bacon from pan and keep 2 tbsp. bacon fat.
  3. Heat pan to medium and place marinated chicken in pan with bacon fat. Cook until chicken has some color to it, does not need to be entirely cooked through at this point.
  4. Remove chicken from pan and place in a casserole dish.
  5. Drain fat from pan and add in the butter.
  6. Allow to melt on medium heat.
  7. Once butter melts, add in the onion and mushroom, cook about 5 minutes.
  8. Add in the flour and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
  9. Stir chicken broth, wine,  and milk into the flour mixture, bring to  a boil and then remove from heat.
  10. Stir in salt, pepper, lemon juice, and Parsley. Pour mixture over chicken in casserole dish.
  11. Top with the cheese and fresh tomatoes. Place casserole dish in preheated oven, 350, for about 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and sauce is bubbly.
  12. While chicken is baking, cook pasta until al dente. Drain water.
  13. Remove chicken from oven and stir pasta into the sauce. Top with crumbled bacon and more fresh Parsley. Serve!

Made this recipe last night for dinner but because of time constraints, wasn’t able to marinade the chicken so I made the sauce by adding the dressing in with the broth, wine and milk. Turned out fantastical! It’s always good to know that you can tweak a recipe because of time and still have it turn out stellar! We are eating the “lefties” tonight for supper and both Hub and I completely loved it. Will definitely be a repeat recipe in my house! Applause, applause!!! Thanks Girlie!! 😉

Can the wine be replaced with more chicken broth or water? Or do you have a different suggestion?
