Catch a Man Chicken

How can you not attempt a recipe with a name like "Catch a Man Chicken"?! Granted, I've already got my man, but all the same, I was sure this dish, completely with bacon, would be a winner. This was pulled from Tasty Kitchen from the Pioneer Woman's website and I really made minimal changes to help make this fit in with our diet plan.

Catch a Man Chicken
Serves 6
Estimated Point Value: 5 pts*

1 lb package of thinly sliced chicken breasts
12 Slices of Bacon
1 can Cream Of Chicken Soup
8 oz. Sour Cream
Steak Seasoning
Salt and Pepper, to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Spray a large casserole dish with olive oil cooking spray.
  3. Wrap each piece of chicken with two slices of bacon (there are typically 6 cuts of chicken in the "thinly sliced" Perdue packages, which are my go-to choice. Lay the bacon wrapped chicken in the greased pan, be careful not to over lap the chicken too much.
  4. Sprinkle with steak seasoning, salt, and pepper (the steak seasoning, in my opinion, was an awesome addition).
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream and can of soup and spread evenly over the bacon wrapped chicken.
  6. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 3 hours (your house will smell bacony and amazing).
Serve over rice or noodles (linguine noodles would be the preference of my man but you're free to choose whatever you would like to soak up the sauce).

Obviously you could use actual chicken breasts for this dish, but I would extend the cooking time a little bit and for 6 chicken breasts I would double the amount of sauce...if you're not watching your waistline or attempting to lose a ridiculous amount of baby weight, this would most definitely be a tasty option!

* The estimated point value of this dish is only for the chicken, any rice or pasta will be additional points.)
