This simple chicken dish is delish. Chicken swimming in a rich creamy garlic sauce topped with bacon and fresh tomatoes. Need I say more? This creamy baked chicken really is restaurant quality. The recipe calls for 4 chicken breast but I used 5 smaller ones for my family.

It all starts with cooking some bacon in a skillet. Once the bacon is cooked, you are going to remove all but 2 Tbsp of the bacon grease from the pan. Season your chicken with a little salt and pepper, then cook in the skillet in that bacon grease. You want to cook it just until both sides of the chicken breast have browned. Then place the chicken into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

Next, you are going to melt some butter in a sauce pan and whisk in some flour. Then add in some mushrooms and onion and cook for a minute. At this point, you are now going to add in the chicken broth and garlic and herb cheese spread. Continue to cook until it is all combined and the sauce is smooth. Last you pour this sauce over the chicken.

The chicken now finishes cooking in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked. To serve, place on top of pasta or rice. Then sprinkle with that cooked bacon along with some diced tomatoes.
